Why don't we list IBUs?

There is a difference between absolute bitterness and perceived bitterness. IBUs are useful for homebrewers for the purpose of clone recipes, but it doesn’t always tell the whole story. Expedition Stout is a good example. It has more IBUs than more traditional hoppy beers like Two Hearted and Hopslam.

Barrel-Aged Black is Beautiful

We here at Bell's Brewery were very proud to join the global Black is Beautiful effort in 2020; our version was released in September of that year.

On June 16, 2021, we released a very limited bourbon barrel-aged version in 4-packs exclusively at our General Store in Kalamazoo to help continue that conversation and support justice and equality for people of color.
