Although they have been brewing hazy or unfiltered beers for more than 30 years, Bell’s Brewery‘s new release Official combines two of the styles the Michigan brewing pioneer is known for best: IPAs and wheat beers. But Official offers Bell’s craft beer fans something completely new.
Two of Bell’s brewers’ favorite ingredients have come together in the brew house, combining pungent American hops and delicious wheat malt. This Hazy IPA is double dry-hopped with a combination of Mosaic, Citra, Azacca, Amarillo and El Dorado hops, resulting in complex peach, stone fruit and tropical notes with a dry finish and balanced bitterness. Official is a refined beer for those who love hops and for those who prefer wheat beers. Not to be confused with New England IPAs, Official is Bell’s Hazy IPA.
Official is the latest addition to Bell’s year-round lineup. In addition to draft, it is available to purchase in cans (12 oz. cans packaged in 6-packs; 16 oz. cans packaged in 4-packs) and bottles (12 oz. bottles packaged in 6-packs. 12-packs of 12 oz. cans are available in Michigan only.
Official has already started shipping and is available now in many areas. For those who are unable to locate it nearby, Bell’s recommends fans reach out to their local bottle shops directly for more information. The Bell’s Beer Finder is another good resource.
