I stopped in Whole Foods to pick up some dinner (Salmon and asparagus, at the wife’s request), and saw they had a Bell’s brand I’d never seen - the Consecrator Dopplebock. It’s still getting cold in the fridge, so I can’t give a review yet, but Bell’s crappy new website calls it “a well balanced, full bodied beer”. It turns out it’s only available in February, and not even the whole month.
I feel sorry for my West Coast brothers-in-law, both lovers of Bell’s, who can’t get it locally.
I have to say, it’s more fun to drink a beer with a cool name. I mean, Consecrator Dopplebock? That’s awesome. It’s up there with Rogue Dead Guy Ale (A great beer) and Dogfish Head Raison D'Etre (Another great beer).
