This week's Beer of the Week is from Bell's Brewery in Kalamazoo, MI.  Unavailable in New York State until recently, Bell's is quickly becoming a favorite.  What better way to get yourself acquainted with their lineup than with Lager Of The Lakes available at Half Time.  This is Bell's American Pale Lager, a well-balanced thirst-quencher that the brewer describes thusly:

Lager Of The Lakes focuses on the flavors developed in the brew house, matching a crisp bitterness & distinctive herbal hop aromas to a simple yet firm malt backbone. Following in the tradition of Bohemian-style pilsners, this beer spends a full six weeks maturing in the fermentation vessels. This extended conditioning period refines the overall flavor, highlighting the contributions of the malts & hop

Give it a try this week and fill up your WPDH growler for half price at Half Time in Poughkeepsie.  Let us know if you become as much of a Bell's fan as we are.
