Bell’s Brewery (Comstock, Michigan) announced that Roundhouse India Red Ale recently made its way through their canning line and is officially hitting distribution this month.
First brewed in 2009 at the original brewery in Kalamazoo, Roundhouse India Red Ale is getting a bit of a promotion this month in being named the latest Bell’s Brewery specialty offering to see full distribution. Thanks to a hefty dose of hops added late in the kettle and again in the dry-hopping stage, ” fruity aromas of pineapple, peach and citrus” that “continue into a crisply bitter hop presence across the tongue” headline the Roundhouse experience. To achieve its red hue and provide the balance needed to keep these intense hop notes in check, caramel and toasted specialty malts were carefully selected and employed to create this beer’s backbone. Locally sourced Michigan honey was then added to level everything out and give the brew a smooth finish.
Roundhouse India Red Ale was officially released this week and will hit the full Bell’s Brewery distribution area “in waves, so availability will vary.” This limited release offering will be available in 6-packs of 12 oz. cans and on draft during the months of September and October. Roundhouse is sure to disappear from shelves and taps with a quickness, so get yourself a taste of this brew whenever you happen upon it. Prost!
