Now shipping: Midwestern Pale Ale mini-kegs
Our next mini-keg will feature Midwestern Pale Ale.
The 5 liter cans have started shipping but will be limited.
They will also be available at the Bell’s General Store in downtown Kalamazoo beginning Feb. 7.
Brewed with a combination of 2-row malt and barley grown on the Bell’s Farm in Shepherd, Michigan, this is the first time Midwestern Pale Ale will be available in this additional packaging option.
The artwork features an artistic representation of the Bell’s Farm by Kalamazoo-based artist Conrad Kaufman.
The can features the same painting as the label but will be shown in its entirety on the mini-keg.
"This is a perfect way to share Midwestern Pale Ale,” said Laura Bell, Bell’s Vice President.
“We are proud that this beer is made with an ingredient grown on our farm right here in Michigan and that will be front and center to everyone when these arrive in stores,” she said.
For help locating Midwestern Pale Ale mini-kegs, please use our Beer Finder to contact nearby retailers for more information.
Oberon mini-kegs will also be released in May.
