It’s Official – Bell’s has a new beer

Bell’s Brewery has announced the addition of a new year-round beer.

Official American Wheat IPA is a 6.4 percent alcohol by volume brew that, according to the popular West Michigan brewery, brings pungent American hops and wheat malt together.

Double dry-hopped, Bell’s Official uses a combination of Mosaic, Citra, Azzaca, Amarillo and El Dorado hops and beer fans will enjoy notes of peach, stone fruit and tropical hop characteristics with a dry finish and balanced bitterness.

Development of this beer began in 2017 with the limited release of Titania and later, Larry’s Latest IPA. Both inspired this new beer and helped Bell’s Innovation and Brewing Teams refine the recipe for Bell’s Official.

With an ABV of 6.4%, Official is still incredibly drinkable and like many of Bell’s other beers, unfiltered (hazy). It will be available to order across their 40-state distribution area, as well as in Washington DC and Puerto Rico.

Official will be available in 4-packs of 16 oz. cans, 6-packs (12 oz. bottles and cans) and on draught.
