According to labels filed with the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB), Bell’s Brewery, Inc. is working on Big Porch Ale 2018, a 5.8 percent ABV amber-style ale. Originally released in 2007, past versions of the ale have been sold exclusively at the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island in Michigan.
“On an island without care, where horses and bicycles are still the favored form of transportation, a special ale is surely required,” reads a post on Bell’s website.
As with previous versions, Big Porch Ale 2018 will be packaged in 12-ounce bottles. An email sent to the brewery for additional information was not immediately returned.
