    COMSTOCK, MI (Feb 2014) – Bell’s Brewery, Inc. will launch in New York City and on Long Island beginning Feb. 10 with Union Beer Distributors.

    More than 80 locations will have Bell’s beer on tap and Bell’s representatives will be available to answer questions and talk about the brewery at many events in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens and on Long Island. Details are available on the Bell’s website: bellsbeer.com/events-2/.

    Larry Bell, Bell’s President and Founder, will also be part of a group that travels to the city to help get to know this new distribution area, answer questions and talk about Bell’s history and future plans.

    Many events will feature core brands like Two Hearted, Kalamazoo Stout, Midwestern Pale Ale, Amber Ale and more. Bell’s spring seasonal, Smitten Golden Rye Ale, and specialty beers like Expedition Stout, Special Double Cream Stout, Black Note and Quinannan Falls Special Lager will be tapped to help celebrate Bell’s arrival to New York City.

    “When we brought our beer to New York last fall, we knew there was a big part of the state that we didn’t get to know. We’re really excited to complete that launch and bring our beer to the Big Apple,” said Bell’s Vice President Laura Bell.

    For the most up to date information about availability of Bell’s beer in their area, craft beer fans should contact their preferred local retailers, bars and restaurants or check the Bell’s Beer Finder online:http://bellsbeer.com/brands/brand-finder/

    Cool news! Interesting that there was no mention whatsoever about HopSlam...hmm.
    Sadly, the two events listed that are nearest me are both on the 11th, at a time I'll still be at work. :slight_frown:
    I can only hope there might still be some Two Hearted or Expedition left at Bellport Beer by the weekend.

    Don't worry, Hopslam is coming! Not sure about Long Island, but a few NYC venues already announced it for launch events next week.

    Can't even make any launch events in NYC, where I work (afternoons and evenings—d'oh!). Gotta pin my hopes on finding bottles somewhere on LI. Or maybe just buy my first growler ever.

    If you can't make any of the many events in the city, this on the Island may interest you. Unsure if it's a bottle release though. I hope it is.

    Yeah, I saw that on the events list on the Bells site. Can't make any of the events on LI either (see my first post in thread).

    I wonder how much of a cluster the NYC events will be?

    Bellport has had Bell's for months. They are having a release/tasting too.

    that is what i think, more events on the same day means that crowds should be spread out, or i would hope

    I know of one bar that will have it on tap for their release party, and only one, so far.
