More than 300 bikers rode Bell's to Bell's
Thank you to the more than 300 people who took part in the Bell’s to Bell’s bike ride this weekend. The 14-mile round trip went from the Eccentric Cafe in Kalamazoo to our brewery in Comstock, with a tour of the brew gallery and samples. All the proceeds went to the Kalamazoo River Valley Trail.
Video: Where did the original face of Oberon come from?
The original face of Oberon lives in the Eccentric Cafe.
It’s not the painting on the East side of the building. Nor on one of the mini-kegs in the Back Room.
It may have gone unnoticed: it’s on a small, wooden mask that hangs with several others above our taps.
Larry Bell purchased the mask while in Muir Woods in California. He brought it back to Kalamazoo to use for inspiration when creating the Oberon sun that is featured on the label to this day.
Hear Larry tell the story:
