Smitten? Send a Bell's Beerentine to your special someone
UPDATE: Paper Berentines are all reserved. E-versions are still available.
After last year’s tremendous response to our Smitten Beerentines, we decided to bring them back again for another round.
This year, there are two delivery options though. You can choose to send one via snail mail (yes, we will still fill out the card, address the envelope, take care of the postage and mail it for you with a little something extra from us) or you can send an e-version.
There is no cost for either.
Just choose how you want us to send it (snail mail or the Intertubes), who you want it to go to and which design to use (there are 6 to choose from – 4 returning favorites along with 2 new options). We will take care of the rest.
Please keep in mind, paper Beerentines are limited and the deadline to order one is noon on Feb. 5.
Please, one per person. We also have to limit recipients’ locations to the U.S. (for those living outside of the U.S., you can still use the e-version).
We will get them in the mail for delivery on or around Valentine’s Day. It will be up to you to choose when your e-card is sent (immediately, on Valentine's Day, before, etc.).
If you want to go the extra mile (or need to make up for this or that), our General Store has a few gift basket options featuring not only Smitten, but Two Hearted as well. Take a look.
Photo gallery: Thank you to everyone for another great Kalamazoo Beer Week
Another Kalamazoo Beer Week is in the books. We had a blast and hope you did as well.
Below is a gallery of all the images we collected over the week - from Snow Jog to our Tap Event at Old Burdick's in downtown Kalamazoo. But before we get to that, we wanted to offer a few thank yous.
First and foremost, a huge thank you to everyone who joined us during #KBW15. Special thanks also to our distributor and account partners as well as all of this year's organizers.
We also want to raise a glass to this year's Snow Jog participants. 400 joggers donated 610 lbs. of food to Kalamazoo Loaves and Fishes. Well done.
Bell’s will celebrate 30th anniversary with Funvitational Beer Festival in Kalamazoo
COMSTOCK, Mich. – Bell’s Brewery will celebrate 30 years of brewing in Michigan this year.
To mark that milestone, we’re inviting breweries and our fans to the Bell’s 30th Anniversary Funvitational Beer Festival to say thank you to all of our fans, customers and partners.
It will be held on Saturday, Sept. 12, 2015 at Homer Stryker Field, part of Mayors Riverfront Park and home to the Kalamazoo Growlers in downtown Kalamazoo.
The festival will feature more than 100 breweries from Kalamazoo, Michigan and elsewhere. Some of those breweries may not currently distribute to Michigan. There will be games, live entertainment and local food with all proceeds going to charity.
“We have been brewing in Kalamazoo for almost 30 years and we are extremely proud of where we got our start,” said Laura Bell, Bell’s Vice President.
“This festival is a celebration of that heritage, our community and our fans,” she said.
“We’re finalizing the brewery list now, but it was decided early on, that every brewery in the immediate Kalamazoo area would be invited,” she said.
Ticket sales info will be announced in early April. Tickets for this rain or shine event will not be available online. They will initially be released based on a mail order lottery system, and then sold on-site at Bell’s General Store and Eccentric Café.
“We want to make sure that everyone who wants to come will have a fair chance to get tickets. We also did not feel comfortable relying on a website that could be overwhelmed. We want this whole experience to be as fun and hassle free as possible,” Bell said.
Each ticket will cost $45 and will include 12 beer tasting tokens, each good for a 4 oz. pour, a special commemorative tasting glass as well as food tickets. Additional tasting and food tickets will be available to purchase at the festival.
Additional details will be released in the coming months.
