Bell's Kalamazoo Stout   
Bell's Brewery  ·  Kalamazoo, MI
A blend of dark chocolate and coffee flavors with just a hint of brewer's licorice. One of our oldest recipes, it balances a significant hop presence against the roast malt body.
Food Pairings: A more intense, roasty version of a porter, the roast in Kalamazoo Stout can be a nice counterpoint to rich or sweet foods. It can also create resonance with intense, caramelized meats, rich stews, sweet barbecue or nutty desserts. A gimme with smoked salmon or oysters on the half shell and nice with steamed lobster. Try it with corned beef as well. For dessert, try with chocolate souffle, baklava or mocha mascarpone mousse. Pairs well with cheeses like aged Gouda, Parmesan, cheddar, French brie (for a nice contrast), Holland smoked Gouda, MouCou ColoRouge, Trader Joe’s goat milk brie or Trader Joe’s Huntsman.

Bell's Oarsman Ale   
Bell's Brewery  ·  Kalamazoo, MI

It pairs well with fried fish (with or without chips), ceviche, steamed lobster and sushi. For dessert, try it with raspberry, chipotle, or chocolate desserts, crudités or fruit as a contrast.
