Episode 218: Bell’s Lager Of The Lakes & Midwestern Pale Ale

You better get your beer goggles on for this Hop Cast. In episode 218, Brad Chmielewski and Ken Hunnemeder open two fantastic beers from one of the staple midwest breweries, Bell’s. Bell’s Brewery has been around for 28 years and they continue to make new and fantastic beers every year. You’d be hard to find a craft beer lover that hasn’t fallen in love with Two Hearted. Over the years we’ve done a number of Bell’s beers on the Hop Cast; Christmas Ale, Kalamazoo Stout, Cherry Stout, Best Brown and 25th Anniversary Ale. Today Brad and Ken open a couple of their “newer” beers, Lager Of The Lakes & Midwestern Pale Ale. First up is Lager Of The Lakes, a 5% ABV American Pale Lager that will quench your thirst any day. Following up the Lager Of The Lakes is the 5.2% ABV Midwestern Pale Ale. This American Pale Ale is made almost exclusively from pale malt.

Truthfully, it’s hard to go wrong with a Bell’s beer and just because they aren’t the rarest or the newest kids on the block, doesn’t mean you should forget about them. They are making some fantastic beverages! Cheers, and thanks for watching the Hop Cast.
