Bell’s Brewery (Comstock, Michigan) has officially announced that 5L mini-kegs of Two Hearted Ale, the brewery’s wildly popular American IPA, will return to store shelves in early November.
Back for the first time since 2012 and just in time for the holidays, mini-kegs of Two Hearted Ale are 1.32 gallons of the award-winning American India Pale Ale that was recently voted “No. 1 Beer in America” for the second year in a row by members of the American Homebrewers Association. These “eccentric” 5L mini-kegs are “perfect for sharing (or not) and make great gifts.”
If you happen to be unfamiliar with this legendary brew, here is the brewery’s official description of Two Hearted Ale:
Two Hearted Ale | American India Pale Ale – Brewed with 100% Centennial hops from the Pacific Northwest and named after the Two Hearted River in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, this IPA is bursting with hop aromas ranging from pine to grapefruit from massive hop additions in both the kettle and the fermenter. Perfectly balanced with a malt backbone and combined with the signature fruity aromas of Bell’s house yeast, this beer is remarkably drinkable and well suited for adventures everywhere. ABV – 7%
A limited quantity of Two Hearted Ale mini-kegs will be sent out into distribution during the week of November 5 and will be available at the Bell’s General Store in Kalamazoo on November 7. These mini-kegs will be available for a limited time at select craft beer-friendly retailers located in Alabama, Florida, Michigan and throughout the rest of the brewery’s distribution area. Two Hearted Ale is also available Year-Round in 6-packs of 12 oz. bottles, 6-packs and 12-packs of 12 oz. cans, 4-packs of 16 oz. cans and on draft. Prost!
