Bell’s Brewery was founded in 1983 by Larry Bell as a home-brewing supply shop and became the first modern-era craft brewery east of Boulder, CO.  The brewery started with only being able to brew 135 barrels in 1986 recently (2007) expanded to brew over 90,000 barrels a year.  Bell’s Brewery now distributes to over 15 states nation-wide.
Amber Bell’s flagship beer.  This Amber Ale has a solid malt base with an even stronger hop presence.  A caramel and toasty malt backbone is strong up front but finishes with a citrus/grapefruit hop aroma and flavor.  5.5% abv.
Lager A straw colored, medium-bodied Lager with a semi-sweet bready, caramel malt base and an earthy hop flavor.  5% abv.
Oberon A crisp and refreshing wheat beer with flavors of orange peel, coriander, and fruity spices.  The addition of Saaz hops gives this beer a very balanced bitter finish.  5.8% abv
Pale Ale is an American Pale Ale brewed almost entirely of pale malt.  A nice citrusy hop flavor blends nicely with the biscuit malt character.  5.2% abv.
Two Hearted A full bodied IPA with a orangish color and a huge hop aroma.  The large amount of hops in this beer yields a piney and grapefruit flavor that is supported by a smooth malt base.  7% abv.
