A Great Beer in Kalamazoo


When the leaves start dropping from the trees, beer tastes start to change right along side the changing weather. Bellís Kalamazoo Stout is a great beer to choose on a cool, fall evening.

Santa Rosa, CALIFORNIA -



The line from the song says, "Iíve got a gal in KalamazooÖ", but it might as well say "Iíve got a great brew in Kalamazoo!". When the leaves start dropping from the trees, beer tastes start to change right along side the changing weather. This time of year evokes yearnings for stouts, porters and heavier ales. Bellís Kalamazoo Stout is a great beer to choose on a cool, fall evening.



Larry Bell, with his "Live life unfiltered" philosophy, has been brewing excellent beer since the mid-80s. The brewery, with its inviting beer garden, is a relaxing spot for a beer-thirsty traveler. Bellís Kalamzoo Stout, one of many Bellís offerings, is loaded with flavor. The taste of molasses and coffee descend upon the palate like those autumn leaves falling off their trees. The taste of the malt is soothing, not overpowering, and at 6.5% abv, its supplies a nice, warming effect while drinking it. This dark gem of a brew is guaranteed to up the ante on your appreciation of stout. I enjoy this brew with hearty fall meals such as roasts, chili or lamb.



A few years ago, there was a rumor that Elvis was seen eating at a Burger King in Kalamazoo. No he wasnít. He was at Bellís drinking the Kalamazoo Stout.
