Episode Summary

Michigan has a lot of great things - Detroit style pizza, @meijer (which is like a Target on Steroids), Bill Knapps, and almost 400 breweries! It's also the only place in the WORLD that has a floating post office - the JW Westcott II. And we mean floating on the water, not the air. Those don't exist anywhere...yet. A waterway post office sounds about right for the state that ranks number one in boat registrations. Thanks in large part to Michigan owning the longest freshwater coastline in the U.S. Clearly water plays a big role in the history of most Michiganders. So it stands to reason that one of Michigan's most famous beers is named after a river - the Two Hearted River, to be exact. Today, we're recognizing the producer of that beer - @bellsbrewery in Kalamazoo, MI. They're celebrating 35 years of making world class beer! Bell's should be a household name to most of our listeners, but it wasn't always that way. Like many great things, it all began with a soup pot - the vessel Larry Bell used for his first commercial brew back in 1985. Fortunately for us Bell left the soup pots behind and increased production. You can now find Bell's iconic beers like their most popular Two Hearted Ale available in all but 8 U.S. states. On this episode of the Drinking Socially Podcast, hosts Harrison Hickok and Jon Dispenza pay tribute to this revered brewery by tackling four Bell's beers to unlock the Always Inspired badge.
