We're a few days away from what is essentially a state holiday, Oberon Day. But what has happened since the last Oberon Day and the one on March 21st begs the question: Is Bell's still a craft brewer of craft beer?
In a shocking announcement Wednesday afternoon, Larry Bell said he'll be retiring and selling his eponymous brewery to Australian brewer Lion, which two years ago bought New Belgium Brewing in Colorado.
It's the final month of summer, which if you believe some surveys, hasn't lived up to many people's expectations. But the brewmasters at Bell's have something new for you to try. It's a new wheat beer named Rind over Matter.
There are acts of kindness and generosity everywhere, and many don't get widely recognized, but here's one that will be. And, in fact, it's a win-win. Thursday, July 29th is National Chicken Wing Day, and for the second year in a row, Bell's will be raising awareness about the problem of hunger among the nation’s seniors.
