Just a really nice beer: No, Yeah is the latest Bell’s year-round release

Both the name and packaging both play into Midwest politeness and memes that share in that culture. Phrases like "ope", " 'scuse me" and "let me sneak past ya" are all part of the fun of this new Bell’s offering. It is bright and fun.

We would like to (politely) introduce you to our newest release specifically for those in the Midwest.

No, Yeah, is our latest year-round release; it will start shipping next week here in Michigan, Wisconsin, Indiana, Ohio, Illinois and Minnesota.

An easy-drinking Golden Ale with an ABV of 4.5%, No, Yeah is bright and fun inside and out. This lighter craft beer option is crisp and dry with a slightly sweet flavor profile. It is balanced, not overly bitter and will resonate with fans of lagers and those just looking for a really nice beer.

“We saw an opportunity with our core offerings, part of a growing market, but also a niche that’s near and dear to us as proud Midwesterners,” Larry Bell, president and founder said.

This beer will appeal to those who are looking for another alternative to higher ABV beers, something that is crisp and refreshing and not too hoppy,” he added.
