Bell’s Brewery (Comstock, Michigan) has officially announced that Oberon Ale will be temporarily wearing a new limited-edition look for the rest of Summer 2019.
Inspired by the artwork featured on this year’s Oberon mini-kegs, Bell’s Brewery has decided to give Oberon a refreshed look that reflects the subtle shifts that occur throughout the summer season. This new design will be featured on all Oberon packaging: 4-packs of 16 oz. cans, 6-packs of 12 oz. cans, 12-packs of 12 oz. cans, 6-packs of 12 oz. bottles, and 12-packs of 12 oz. bottles. In addition to being featured on Oberon bottles and cans, this “same beautiful imagery has also inspired some brand-new Bell’s merchandise that can be purchased online and in person from the Bell’s General Store.”
“This is a fun way to celebrate the different parts of the summer season… rest assured, it’s the same beer you’ve grown to know and love,” said Larry Bell, founder and president of Bell’s Brewery.
