Exciting news! Per Bell’s Brewing’s website, they will be canning Hopslam for 2016. One of their most sought after beers, Hopslam will be packaged solely in six-packs of 12 oz. cans and kegs when it returns in January for its annual release.
The Double India Pale Ale, brewed with Michigan honey, will not be bottled as it has been in the past.
“With construction here at the brewery on top of an already very busy schedule for our existing Bottling Hall, this was the only way to ensure that this beer got to market as quickly and as fresh as possible,” said Bell’s Vice President Laura Bell.
This expansion will almost triple their footprint once it is completed next year.
Future packaging decisions, beyond 2016, will be decided at a later date and as construction wraps up next year.
Hopslam (10% ABV) will be the sixth Bell’s beer to be packaged in cans. Two Hearted and Bell’s seasonal offerings (Oberon, Best Brown, Winter White and Smitten) are packaged in 4-packs of 16 oz. cans.
Two Hearted (year round) and Oberon (March – August) are also available in 12-packs of 12 oz. cans.
