All Four Ale, Greensky Bluegrass return for annual Bell's Beer Garden Opener
All Four Ale will return to the Eccentric Café this weekend in downtown Kalamazoo.
Named after the Greensky Bluegrass song of the same name, All Four is a dry hopped American Pale Ale/IPA.
This is the second time we have brewed this beer and it is brewed with hops from the Southern Hemisphere and malt from North America along with a touch of rye. All Four is a pub exclusive.
Look for ripe, tropical fruit notes along with pine and an ABV of 5.85%.
This is the ninth year Greensky has opened our Beer Garden Series. They will be performing on both Friday and Saturday nights with Ryan Montbleau Band.
For advance tickets to any of the Café’s shows (when available), go here.
