KALAMAZOO, Mich. — It's a lo-cal IPA that should taste very familiar to West Michigan craft beer drinkers.
Bell's Brewery said on Facebook Friday that it is debuting a new beer called Light Hearted Ale and it should be available in 2020. The new beer is inspired by the well-known Two Hearted Ale from Bell's.
"All malt, balanced, flavorful, hoppy and only 3.7% Alcohol by volume," is how Bell's describes the beer online.
The announcement comes during Bell’s’ week-long anniversary celebration of its Two-Hearted Ale.
Two Hearted Ale was recently named the best beer in America for the third straight year by the American Homebrewers Association.
Bell’s released Light-Hearted Ale in samples as a General Store exclusive from its Eccentric Café in Kalamazoo last April according to the Detroit Free Press. In that release, those sample bottles were listed at 4.5% ABV. and had 110 calories.
