While we have opened our new 200-barrel brewhouse, we are still working to catch up with the high demand for our beer. The next state we will expand to will be New York, but not until we have enough beer to do so. We plan on growing as we have before: slowly, steadily and with purpose.
No, we don't. We recognize the desire to sample our specialty brands outside of the pub, but we choose to control the way they are packaged in order to make sure that they taste the way we intend. Although we don't offer growlers, we have recently introduced our Eccentric Cafe only 750ML series, available for sale in the Bell's General Store. This limited series has included Mead, Black Note, Sparkling Ale, Wedding Ale, Raspberry Ale, The Wild One and others. For more information, go here.
