Bell´s Brewery was founded by Larry Bell in Michigan, USA in 1983, under the name Kalamazoo Brewing. They started brewing in a 57l. soup kettle and with open fermenters covered with plastic wrap. In the 90´s, the brewery started growing and selling outside of its state, also becoming the first Michigan brewery to open a pub to serve their own crafts. In 2005, they changed their name officialy to Bell´s Brewery. Most of their beer are seasonal brews, like the worldwide famous Expedition Stout, but they also have some beers all year round, like Two Hearted Ale—one of the best rated beers in Ratebeer.
