Breckenridge Mango Mosaic kicks off the not only the brewery’s summer lineup, but joins year-round.
The base pale ale is brewed with Mosaic hops, chosen to accentuate the mega dose of mango added to this beer. The result is described as an all-occasion beer where “hops meet fruit.”
“We’ve used Mosaic hops for several years in other beers, and we love the floral, tropical fruit, earthy characteristics that it gives – great aroma and a sweetness unlike other hops we’ve experimented with…” – Todd Usry, President, Breckenridge Brewery

Proud Mitten is a blend of an American pale and and IPA, created by David Lyman, of Kalamazoo. Double dry hopped, Mitten uses Centennial, Citra and Simcoe hops.
“Brewing with Zeke (Bell’s Specialty Brewer) was an amazing experience. His knowledge on brewing science and practical brewing was something that I was looking forward to, and he didn’t let me down. Zeke answered all my questions,” Lyman said.
Bell’s Proud Mitten will be available at the Eccentric Cafe, and the American Homebrews Association Homebrew Conference in Grand Rapids on June 12 and 13.
