We're a few days away from what is essentially a state holiday, Oberon Day. But what has happened since the last Oberon Day and the one on March 21st begs the question: Is Bell's still a craft brewer of craft beer?
In a shocking announcement Wednesday afternoon, Larry Bell said he'll be retiring and selling his eponymous brewery to Australian brewer Lion, which two years ago bought New Belgium Brewing in Colorado.
A couple of big releases coming for local beer drinkers in the coming days. The obvious one is Oberon Day is Monday, March 22nd. But a beer released this past holiday season as part of a holiday pack, is coming back for wider release and distribution.
