Eureka Cream Ale (Full Time, Award Winner)

Don’t let this Cream Ale fool you. This pre-prohibition Cream Ale is a smooth full flavored Ale that will appeal to your casual craft beer drinker and to craft beer lovers. At 5.8%, this sessionable beer can carry a bit more bitterness than your typical lawnmower cream ale. The added wheat malt gives it the creamy body and wonderful lacing to the last drop. With 4 malts and a blend of 4 hops, this Cream Ale is really how Cream Ale used to be. That’s how we roll! Expect the unexpected from Bell City Brewing.

Lenoir Belgian Ale (Full Time)

Beer in Belgium dates back to the first crusades when local abbeys brewed beer as a fund raising method. The artisanal brewing methods evolved over centuries and became popular with Master Brewers and beer drinkers around the world. Our premium ingredients and brewing methods are sure to impress the monks. Golden in colour, Lenoir has classic Belgian fruity aroma with a slight sweetness and very little bitterness. Lenoir is a smooth and sessionable Belgian style beer. Enjoy!

Elijah’s Real McCoy (Full Time)

Patiently cold-lagered, this brew is a golden-coloured Kolsch-style ale.  Traditionally brewed in the Cologne region of Germany, Kolsch beers are appreciated around the world as light, crisp ales with a balanced, refreshing body and subtle hop characters.

Canadian-born engineer, Elijah McCoy, became a prolific inventor, specializing in components for steam engines. His inventions were of such high quality that customers insisted on only purchasing “the real McCoy”, giving birth to the phrase we use today.

Raven’s Heart Stout (Past Seasonal)

The autumn leaves blow in the cold as the complexity of the bare tree branches are finally exposed.  Sitting silently, the Raven.  There’s nothing colder than the Raven’s cold black stare“,……….other than perhaps your ex’s heart.

Dating back to the 12th century, the Belgium Abbey Monks favoured dark flavourful ales, with one style known as Zwaartbier meaning, quite literally “black beer” .  Our Dark Belgian Stout is a robust, malt forward, full bodied Zwaartbier you can enjoy.  The specialty and chocolate malts give you a rich and complex finish.  Pour, smell, and drink!

  • 23 IBU,
  • 6%abv
  • Colour: As black as a raven’s heart
  • “Tastes like a bloody good cigar”

A Cautionary Ale, Rye IPA (Past Seasonal)

Brewed with crystal and rye malts, and a blend of four hops give this beer a big, bold, dry, bitter finish.  The rye malt gives hints of sweetness at the start, and then the hops take over and, in the words of our master brewer, “they kind of smack you round the face, don’t they?”  This is the FULL hop experience and, at 7.5% abv, you will need to “put yer big-boy pants on” for this one.

  • 68 IBU,
  • 7.5%abv
  • FULL hop experience with a superb dry, bitter finish.

Galaxy Hopper, Session IPA (Past Seasonal)

When it comes to filling growlers, our customers have crowned this beer a favourite! Pouring a slightly hazy straw with white head, our “session” IPA meets the nose with a blast of pine, mango, pineapple and lychee. The first sip opens however with soft and pillow notes of puffed cereal and bread, before the citrus and resin flavors of the hops make themselves known. Its bitterness is kept reigned in for an IPA, making it a sessionable beer, but with enough flavor and aroma to stand out amongst the crowd. Enjoy the full flavour and aroma of Galaxy Hopper’s 4-hop blend.

  • 18 IBU,
  • 4.8% alc/vol
  • 4-hop blend brings bold delicious flavour. Wonderfully aromatic.

A Note About Growlers/Howlers

What is a “Growler” or "Howler" anyway?  A growler/howler is a glass, ceramic, or stainless steel jug used to transport beer purchased at a local craft brewery. The name originated from the sound CO2 made when it escaped from the lid covering the metal pail of the original design.

Growlers are generally 64 ounces (1.9l) and Howlers are half that size at 32 ounces (1l). Bell City will fill your personal Growler/Howler even if it is purchased from another brewery (provided it is clean).

Growlers & Howlers are pretty neat for a lot of reasons, including the fact it’s refillable, which means your carbon footprint is smaller than those import beer drinkers!  That’s cool like Fonzie and you’re helping the environment!  The beer is also really fresh because it’s filled right where we make it. 

We understand that sometimes you just can’t beat the convenience of a can (think camping!), but don’t worry, we’ve got you covered with our 473ml format cans. Unlike that sad house plant you don’t even remember you have, you have to remember that this is your own personal Growler to keep and care for.  Give it a name if you wish.  That’s so cute isn’t it?

Here are 3 steps to ensure your beer stays brewery fresh:

STEP 1: drink it.
Of course we don’t pasteurize or add preservatives to our beers so keep your Growler refrigerated and enjoy within 1 week of purchase and within 48 hours of opening.  We can’t imagine this rule will be hard to follow.
STEP 2: clean it.
After use, make sure you clean your growler right away.  It’s really simple.  Rinse your growler and cap with nice hot water 3 to 4 times.  Let your growler air dry upside down.  If you rinse your growler right away, there is no need for mild dish soaps or detergents.  Once dry it should be free of any odors or perfumes.
STEP 3: repeat
Bring it back and choose your next beer.
