Bell’s Brewery is going to make a new seasonal release appear this fall.
The beer is Arabicadabra, a 5.5 percent ABV milk stout brewed with a lactose and a cold coffee extract made at the Comstock, Mich.-based brewery using a combination of fair trade, organic Nicaraguan and Sumatra coffee beans sourced from Ferris Coffee in Grand Rapids, Mich. The milk stout will replace Bell’s Java Stout in the brewery’s seasonal lineup this year, although the change will not be permanent.
“It’s really fun to see new favorites move to a wider audience,” said Laura Bell, ceo at Bell’s, in a press release. “This is another example of how we continue to explore new ingredients and flavors. The spirit of innovation that set us on this path is still a huge part of who we are and we will continue to look for ways to showcase that innovation across our distribution area.”
According to Bell’s, Arabicadabra will be packaged in six-packs of 12-ounce bottles that will begin shipping to retailers across the brewery’s entire distribution network in October.
