Winning Apricot IPA homebrew competition recipe on tap soon

Matt brewing his winning recipe at Bell's B1 brewery

Every year, we celebrate our roots by hosting a the Bell’s Homebrew Competition. 

Our most recent winner, Matt, brewed his recipe at the request of a friend who wanted to learn how to make beer. Heather’s Request is an Apricot IPA and is going on tap at 2 p.m. this Sunday at Bell’s Eccentric Café.

The winning beer was picked by Bell’s employees out of more than 110 entries.

Learn more about the story behind the beer and what it was like for Matt to brew at our original Downtown Kalamazoo Brewery:
