Bell’s Best Brown Ale Makes Seasonal Return With New Look

Bell’s Brewery (Comstock, Michigan) has officially announced that its long-standing Best Brown Ale will be rocking a new look when it makes its Seasonal return in September 2020.

Originally released in 1988, Best Brown is a “smooth, toasty” American Brown Ale that “offers hints of cocoa and caramel” balanced by American hops. Coming in at 5.8% ABV, Best Brown is “incredibly balanced and bridges the gap between lighter-bodied beers and malty stouts.”

For its 2020 release, Best Brown will be adorned with new-look packaging and label designs featuring a modern take on the beloved owl that has been on the beer’s label since 1993.

โ€œIt’s a mix of the old and the new. It hearkens back to our original labels while paying homage to the heritage of the brand, a modernized nod to the history of Best Brown.โ€
Larry Bell, president and founder of Bellโ€™s Brewery

Best Brown Ale is scheduled to release in September and will hang around through October 2020. You can expect to find this Seasonal Release available in 6-packs and 12-packs of 12 oz. bottles, 6-packs of 12 oz. cans, 4-packs of 16 oz. cans and on draft at select craft beer-focused establishments located in Alabama, Florida, Michigan and throughout the rest of Bell’s Brewery’s distribution area. Prost!
