Bell’s Brewery (Comstock, Michigan) has recently announced that Bell’s Octoberfest Beer will be returning to bottles in 2016.
After a five year break, Bell’s Brewery is officially reviving Bell’s Octoberfest Beer as a packaged offering this year. This Märzenbier comes in at 5.5% ABV and is described by the brewery as having “a light, dry toasted malt note without too much sweetness.” This lager has achieved its popularity with Bell’s fans due to its smooth character and easy drinking nature.
“Octoberfest is a brewery and a fan favorite, one that we get a lot of questions about,” said Bell’s Vice President Laura Bell. “This is the year we can finally say yes, Octoberfest is coming back in bottles. It has been too long, it’s a perfect way to welcome cooler weather.”
6-packs and 12-packs of 12 oz. bottles of Bell’s Octoberfest Beer will begin shipping in August. Look for this one on shelves at craft beer friendly establishments in Alabama, Florida and throughout all states within the Bell’s Brewery distribution footprint. Prost!
