Bell's 25th Anniversary Ale

Bell's 25th Anniversary Ale has hit KC store shelves. Gomer's South has it and says you'd better get there tout de suite to get it. They're not taking reservations or phone purchases. You've got to show up and get it (they have it held back so you have to ask for it and you can only buy one sixer).

Bell's 25th Anniversary Ale is an American Strong Ale with caramel and toffee flavors with a strong hop presence. Bell's doesn't make a bad beer so this is definitely worth checking out. It's going to be tough to find around town so once you get yours tell us where you got it in comments and help your fellow beer travelers out.

  1. I just got my e-mail from Gomer's South for this, but there wasn't a description. For $15 a sixer I wasn't going to buy it blind.

    I was right tho, the KCBB had the info. Not a hophead but toffee/caramel sounds interesting. If it's still there after work I will be trying it.

    Can I ask something about the average drinker's taste preferences here? I have a Q, there are lots of commenters here and this forum just seems right. So I’m stickin’ it in here.

    Regarding the Wikipedia definition of Real Ale (above), would most beer guzzlers in the lower 48 think Real Ale tastes flat? It seems to me most of us here in the US have been conditioned and have developed palates for brew with higher carbonation levels.

  4. Thanks for the heads up. I picked it up at Royal. Looked like they had a couple of cases.

  5. Riot Room last night - $8. Glad I got to try it, another delicious beer from Bell's for sure, but Expedition & Hopslam leave pretty big shoes to fill...

  6. Picked up a sixer at Lukas at 135th and State Line yesterday around noon. $14.49 and they were limited to one sixer per customer. Gomer's in Lee's Summit was only selling bottles individually for $2.99. Not sure how much each place had as both were in the back and you had to ask for them.

  7. Gomer's Midtown only had "a little" left on Saturday. Good beer, though I think I'm done chasing these limited releases. I'm trying to think of the last time I got something truly great for my efforts...

  8. JJS, I was lucky that one of my friends messaged me and said he was going to Gomer's to get some so I bought one off of him. Otherwise, I wouldn't have bothered. And I'm pretty glad I put in no effort because it just wasn't special. I could go to the liquor store today and get 20 beers I enjoy more and save 5 or 6 bucks.
