Bell's Two Hearted Ale





ABV 7%
Our props 9/10

This is a really delicious IPA & is one of our favorite beers. It's got a great crisp, hoppy flavor. As you can see, it has a nice, light amber color. The nicest part of this brew is the finish. Even for a 7% brew the finish so smooth. It just glides down the throat like a match made in heaven. It tastes full, almost creamy, but not over-filling (I could easily put down 3 or more down without feeling inflated). One of the pricier 6-packs, but definitely worth it every once in a while. It does have 202 calories per beer though. This beer posting sure is a wake-up call for me! Such a bummer all the tastiest of beers are packed with liquid calories. Gotta be careful to not drink too many. Of course, as one of our loyal followers commented on an earlier brew post - liquid calories don't count. :) A little fact about Bell's brewery for anyone that's interested: it was founded by Larry Bell in Michigan and was originally called Kalamazoo Brewing Company.

So Michael and I have a ridiculously enormous collection of pint glasses. I don't want to get rid of a single one b/c they all have a story and special memory. But now they can actually serve a purpose! We'll see how many posts we can get in before we have to re-use a glass. The one featured here was a favor from Michael's best buddy's wedding last year. Bret & Peggy actually even guest posted on the blog a while back. Their BBQ ribs got quite a response too! In fact, this beer would be great with some ribs, so cook up Bret's recipe, grab a 6-pack and enjoy!
