After 8 years of being #1 beer in America, Pliny the Elder was dethroned by Michigan's very own Two Hearted Ale. Not only that, but Bell's was named the #1 brewery in America with Founders as #2. Represent!

It's finally here.  The long winter of our discontent is finally over.  March 27th heralds the realease of the 2017 Oberon.

While parts of the US get Oberon year-round (I'm glaring at you Florida and California), those of us in Bell's homestate of Michigan only get it seasonally. So get out your orange slices and enjoy the reminder that Summer is right around the corner.

I know it's Tuesday night... it's the offseason, not a lot going on football wise. Decided to get a mix and match six pack at my local beer store and relax for the rest of the night. I got four founders Dirty Bastards, Broken Promises by Greenbush Brewery (wheat IPA) and Hop City Brewing Co. HopBot IPA.   Question is...What are you drinking?
