This fall a new coffee heavy milk stout will debut in Michigan – Bell’s Arabicadabra.
The slightly complicated to say name is a play on the Arabica coffee beans in this release. Bell’s chose Grand Rapids, Michican based Ferris Coffee. At least for 2017, Bell’s Arabicadabra will stand in for longstanding favorite, Java Stout.
Arabicadabra uses cold coffee extract made at the brewery, using Nicaraguan and Sumatran coffee beans and a touch of the milk sugar.
Java Stout will always have a special place in our portfolio and isn’t being permanently retired. This year, we are changing things up a bit. Arabicadabra is a different take on a coffee stout and very similar to a local favorite that was released at our pub and at some events. It’s time to share it with an even larger audience.” – Laura Bell, CEO
