At the AHA Rally Sept. 2008 at Bell's Comstock production plant, Larry Bell stated that they use Briess in most of their beers, to the point that Bells is Briess's largest account. You do see stacks of bags of other grains and specialty grains at Bells. everything I saw at Shorts brewpub was Briess.I will try them sometime for a bag of Best Malz Pils.god - how do they make money at $27 a pop
The price on the Briess is, well, way too high. A local place has it for $30, and I can get a 10% club/AHA discount. At that price I will use Briess. Many of the Michigan breweries use Briess. We were at Shorts brewpub a while back, and all we saw were bags of Briess on the landing over the basement brewery.
Jeff, do you know if Bell's uses Briess? I was under the impression that they used Rahr but I may have just assumed that rather than actually substantiated it.
