I just saw 5 or 6 different types of Bell's at the beer store tonight. At $9 a six pack I passed it over but I find it odd that it's not in Chicago but it is in Richmond now. I saw the amber, porter, stout, cream double stout, and another one or two I can't remember.
I also saw that Santa's Butt porter that is getting all the free press due to the label in Maine.

Sweet....I gotta get me some of that double cream stout. I found the Two-Hearted Ale yesterday at a beer store in Smithfield, and I picked up the pale ale while we were in Chicago over Thanksgiving.

Yes, it's brewed in Michigan.

The Two Hearted Ale was one of the ones I couldn't remember.

Yeah I think you're right, Michigan I think.

They had some in Springfield right before T-Giving, but only about 3 cases. A mix of the Pale Ale, and something else but I can't remember. Shame I won't be able to get it after it's gone. Fine beer. One of the guys at the store seemed to think something might happen distribution-wise to get it back in a year or so, but I'm not betting on it. They have quite the lineup of Stouts I wanted to try.
