Bell’s Sparkleberry Ale returns to 16-ounce cans for summer 2019.
This fruit-forward release first debuted in 2013 in honor of the Kalamazoo, Michigan Pride Festival. Bell’s Brewery was a presenting sponsor. Since then, the beer has been made more widely available on draft, plus a few 750-milliliter bottles at Bell’s General Store.
This summer, Bell’s Sparkleberry Ale returns in 16-ounce cans. The brewery continues to maintain their partnership with Kalamazoo Pride, a fundraiser for OutFront Kalamazoo. The Kalamazoo Gay-Lesbian Resource Center, OutFront Kalamazoo, continues to serve the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender community of greater Kalamazoo, its friends, and allies.
“Our celebration of diversity is no secret, but this can says it front and center. No matter who you are or who you love, all are welcome at Bell’s.”- Laura Bell, Bell’s Brewery

Summer is creeping closer and with it, hot weather and cookouts. Don’t enjoy either without Burial Beer Innertube, the brewery’s “All-American” lager.
Inspired by the light lagers of old, Burial Innertube is craft beer’s version of the classic American lager. Believe us when we say, this is a perfect summer slammer. Pairs beautifully with a hotdog hot off the grill, a soak in the pool, sitting on the dock at the lake – pretty much anything.
Brewed with North American barley, corn and rice and lagered carefully, this lager is meant to enjoy all summer long.
Since its initial release, Innertube has added the 16-ounce can format as well. 4 more ounces of summer. Available starting May 19th.
Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft.

It may not look like spring in Durango, Colorado, but the return of Ska Mexican Logger means it’s close.
While Mexican lagers have increased in popularity in recent years, Ska Brewing has been releasing this beer since 1999. That’s longer than half the craft breweries in the United States have been around. The brewery touts this as Colorado’s first craft lager in a can when it hit aluminum in 2011.
The 5% alcohol by volume lager is brewed with a lager yeast strain from Mexico City – the same strain that also ferments Ska’s Rue B. Soho Grapefruit.
Crisp, clean, and refreshing — made for hot afternoons with a side of lime.
Ska Mexican Logger is available in 12-ounce cans and draft from March 20th through Summer 2019.

Catawba Peanut Butter Jelly Time is like drinking a piece of your childhood. If you haven’t tried this beer, mark your calendars for March 1st.
Brewed with raspberries and aged on peanuts, this beer should take you back to a simpler time. Before bills, acne breakouts, and hangovers. (That last one depends on how much of this nostalgia you take part in…)
Does it taste like a sandwich? Pretty much. Brewing with peanut butter and the sugar blob that is jelly isn’t the greatest of ideas. The base beer is a roasty brown ale, aged for weeks on fresh raspberries and peanuts. What makes this beer even more fun to drink, is the arc of flavor you get as it warms. Colder, this beer tastes like peanut butter. Warmer, more sticky jelly notes appear. Because Peanut Butter Jelly Time is a brown ale instead of a stout, it really is a smooth, childhood reminiscent, comfort beer.
When your mom packed a PB&J sandwich in your school lunchbox, the flavors all melded into pure comfort food by noon. Well, we recreated this childhood goodness in a beer! This light brown ale is brewed from five different grains and then aged for weeks on raspberries and roasted peanuts. Take a sip, let flavors mingle on your palate, and enjoy our PB&J in a glass.
New for 2019, the brewery is canning a Strawberry Rhubarb variant available in the taproom, as well as new, draft only, Black Currant edition.
Catawba Peanut Butter Jelly Time! is available in 16-ounce cans in the tap room starting March 1st, hitting distribution shortly after.
