Bell’s has arrived in New York City!


It’s finally here! The long-awaited release of beers from Michigan-based Bell’s Brewery is here. Bottles have already started popping up at retail locations this morning, and there’s a week full of launch events ahead of us. And as we’ve updated our calendar page, it’s even easier to find all the events lined up this week.

Bell’s will be sending their full arsenal of year-round and seasonal beers here. Most notably, there will be kegs of the highly-rated Hopslam floating around the city next week, much to the joy of hop heads. In addition to that, we’ll see the Smitten Golden Rye, the Cherry Stout, Expedition Stout,Special Double Cream, and more at spots around the city this week, on top of the beloved year-round Two-Hearted, Amber, and the Oarsman Ale.
