Make crispy onion rings with Oatsmobile
We love when people take our beer, bring it into the kitchen and cook.
Jackie Dodd, the Beeroness, used our latest release Oatsmobile and made Crispy Oven Baked Beer Battered Onion Rings
Here’s what she said about our session pale ale:
It’s a damn good beer. One of the best sessions beers I’ve had this year (a session beer is a beer that has a lower alcohol content, generally below 5%). The oats give it a round, almost creamy flavor that balances the beautiful dry hopped finish. It kicks you a bit of a fruity, but not overly citrusy, flavor with just the right malt backbone and the perfect level of carbonation for a beer that I want to drink all summer
Thanks, Jackie! View the recipe on the Beeroness’s website.
If you have any recipes using our beer, we’d love to see them.

On Earth Day, we're kicking off Adopt-a-Highway
This Earth Day, we’re hitting the highway that runs by our brewery to help clean it up.
This will be the seventh year we’re participating in Michigan’s Adopt-a-Highway program.
Bell’s has adopted a two-mile stretch of Kings Highway that runs past our brewery in Comstock. Throughout the year most of our employees take part in one of the three pick ups scheduled in the non-snowing seasons.
It’s not only an important public service, but also gets us outside and get to know other members of our Bell’s family.
Adopt-a-Highway is one of the many ways we help give back to our community and help the environment. Our brewery also has a team focused on making our brewing practices more sustainable. We’ll have more on that in the months to come.
If you want to adopt a section of Michigan highway to clean, contact your local MDOT coordinator. Here's a list.
