Bell's First Beer Fermented in the Cypress Vats From Stroh's
« on: October 06, 2015, 07:53:51 PM »
I will be at the AHA Rally on Sunday at Bells and will have a pint of this. Might even write a review.

Ale made with Chevallier malt, fermented in the 100 year old cypress fermenters that were originally used at Stroh Brewing.

The beer.
