Looking for Bell's beer? A new, improved Beer Finder is now online
Locating your favorite Bell’s beer can be challenging and we have been working on ways to make this easier for some time.
Previously, our Beer Finder only listed contact information for each of our distributors by county in the 18 states we distribute to (in addition to Washington DC and Puerto Rico) highlighted in the map to the right.
Now we have something more direct.
Today we are launching a brand new Beer Finder that will allow many of our fans to locate Bell’s beer based on their zip code or address whether at a bar, a restaurant, a retailer or all of the above. There is also a mobile friendly version that can be used when on the go.
While this is a drastic improvement for many, unfortunately our fans in certain areas will still have to contact our distributors directly. This is simply beyond our control and we have listed those areas below along with contact information for each distributor. This contact information will always be available on our website as well.
Here is how to use the new Beer Finder.
• Visit our Beer Finder online: http://bellsbeer.com/brands/brand-finder/
• Enter your zip code or address (an address is required for directions).
• Choose which locations you would like to visit (bars, restaurants, retail outlets, all).
• Select which beer or beers you are looking for (you can also choose our entire portfolio).
• Click the “Show Results” button.
A Google map with a list of nearby locations and contact information for each will load based on your search. It will also show you what other Bell’s brands are available as well, just in case something else catches your eye.
This information can then be shared via Facebook, Twitter or Google+. You can also get a link for your results to share via email.
We still suggest calling ahead to individual locations to confirm that what you are looking for is still available before you head out the door, as these results link to distributor deliveries, not the real-time inventories or draft offerings of these locations, and are thus subject to change.
