Bell’s Brewery is one of the oldest and largest independent craft breweries in the United States. Two Hearted Ale is its most popular craft beer. Available year-round on draught, in cans and in bottles, Two Hearted has been voted No. 1 Beer in America two years in a row by members of the American Homebrew Association.
Now, for the first time since 2012, Bell’s Two Hearted mini-kegs will return to store shelves. They will ship in early November, in limited quantities, just in time for the holidays. These 1.32 gallon cans are perfect for sharing (or not) and make great gifts. Bell’s Brewery is one of the few breweries to offer a beer in such a fun and eccentric package.
Brewed with 100% Centennial hops from the Pacific Northwest and named after the Two Hearted River in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, this IPA is bursting with hop aromas ranging from pine to grapefruit from massive hop additions in both the kettle and the fermenter. Perfectly balanced with a malt backbone and combined with the signature fruity aromas of Bell’s house yeast, this beer is remarkably drinkable and well suited for adventures everywhere.
Kegs will ship from the brewery starting the week of Nov. 5. After being picked up by distributors, it will take some time to travel to their final destination. Bell’s suggest fans contact their local retailers directly to inquire about availability. The brewery also emphasizes being patient with retailers as they may not have all information right away. Two Hearted mini-kegs will be available to ship to Bell’s entire distribution footprint, but will be limited. They will go on sale at the Bell’s General Store in Kalamazoo on Nov. 7.
Bell’s Brewery, Inc. began in 1985 with a quest for better beer and a 15 gallon soup kettle. Since then, we've grown into a regional craft brewery that employs more than 550 people over a 40 state area, in addition to Puerto Rico and Washington DC. The dedication to brewing flavorful, unfiltered, quality craft beers that started in 1985 is still with us today. We currently brew over 20 beers for distribution as well as many other small batch beers that are served at our pub in Kalamazoo, the Eccentric Cafe. Our ongoing goal is to brew thoughtfully, creatively and artistically. 100% family-owned and independent, we strive to bring an authentic and pleasant experience to all of our customers through our unique ales and lagers.
