National Oberon Day

If you didn’t know Monday, March 24th was National Oberon Day. Perhaps this is only a Holiday celebrated here in West Michigan…but hey I’m not complaining. Oberon is brewed by Bell’s Brewery near Kalamazoo, MI. Bell’s Oberon is a wheat ale fermented with Bell’s signature house ale yeast, mixing a spicy hop character with mildly fruity aromas (specifically oranges). The addition of wheat malt lends a smooth mouthfeel, making it a classic summer beer. The Beer was released Monday as is available until Labor Day.

Many people recognized the first day of Spring as March 20th, however, I think most of us beer drinkers would agree it really isn’t official until the Oberon hits the shelves. With that said, thank the Lord it is officially Spring. Though as I sit here and gaze out my window I can’t say it looks much like it. There is still an abundance of snow on the ground and today’s high was just above freezing but I’m remaining hopeful change is near. But enough of my winter blues, if I squint my eyes really tight, look up toward the sun (while indoors) and sip on my Oberon – it will feel Spring enough.

Cheers!

  1. I thought this beer looked familiar when I bought it. I didn’t realize where I saw it until I reread your post. I look forward to drinking it this weekend.
