WALKER, Mich. (WZZM)- Bell's Brewery out of Kalamazoo released its 2013 brew Monday, and many bartenders poured their first official glass at midnight.

Oberon is a citrus beer often served with a slice of orange, similar to Blue Moon. But Oberon customers say the brew is more flavorful and rich than the Colorado-based beer.

Many restaurants and bars throughout the state had late-night release parties. WZZM had a crew at the Alpine T.G.I. Friday's to watch the Oberon celebration.

Overall, the patrons seemed pleased with this year's brew, which is only available for the spring and summer months. In other parts of the country, Oberon is available year-round.
