Here's some hot gossip for Bell's beer lovers-- Juicy Gossip gets a wider release and Oberon Day is March 22!

According to Brewbound, Juicy Gossip was first released exclusively as part of the Jingle Bell’s Holiday Variety Pack last fall; it's now getting its own release. The Pale Ale with a soft bitterness, fruity, juicy hop character, and tropical notes is already available in many locations in 12 oz. bottles, 6-packs , and on draft.

Larry Bell, president and founder of Bell’s Brewery tells Brewbound,

The gossip on the street was, we need more of this. After all of the incredible feedback from partners and fans alike, bringing this beer back was an easy decision.

Bell's shared the news on Facebook, saying,

 Big on juicy & lower on ABV (4.7%), Juicy Gossip's hitting shelves now.


And, a sure sign of spring in West Michigan -- Oberon's release day in 2021 is March 22!  If you're not familiar with the Comstock, Mich., brewed beer:

Oberon is a wheat ale fermented with our signature house ale yeast, mixing a spicy hop character with mildly fruity aromas. The addition of wheat malt lends a smooth mouthfeel, making it a classic summer beer. Made with only 4 ingredients, and without the use of any spices or fruit, Oberon is the color and scent of sunny afternoon.

According to Brewbound, Oberon will start leaving distributor warehouses on March 18 and Bell’s Eccentric Cafe in Kalamazoo will start serving it March 22. While some events will happen in person (with COVID-19 guidelines in place) Bell’s will also celebrate virtually with a special live broadcast "Wake Up with Oberon!”, noon until 1 p.m. on March 22.

You can get Oberon through September in cans, bottles, and on draft; Minikegs will arrive in May.
