Definitely. I had their stuff years ago in college, and I have a buddy whose folks live in Michigan, so he brings it back here from time to time. I love their porter. Darn near everything of theirs that I have had is great, including some seasonals.

Never been to the actual pub, though...

Yeah, I havent been to their pub yet but I buy lots of their beer from time to time....Their oberon that they sell in the summer is very good too. I use their blank bottles for the beer...only $5 a case. I sent my brother a case of it for christmas because he moved out to Colorado a couple years ago. He loved it!

Bell's, New Holland and Founders are my favorites. With Third Coast Old Ale and Two Hearted Ale being my favorites from Bell's. Batch 1500 was also an excellent brew though limited. Batch 5000 was quite unique though smoked ales aren't my thing. Eccentric ale pretty much speaks for itself.

Default Bell's Twentieth Anniversay Ale

I just bought a sixer of this today and am sampling my first one. It was bottled on October 10, 2005 and I am writing this on Nov. 4th.

This is a wonderful ale. Medium bodied and carbonated, it has a nice warm flavor - maybe aromatic or biscuit malt?...not sure. But it is a great Fall ale. More malt than hops, but well balanced - not sweet or bitter. IMHO, this is an ale you can begin the first college football game with on Saturday and never have an urge to change to a diffeent style all day!

I'd love to replicate this! I'm already saving the yeast remnants in the bottle!
