The Bells

I stopped at the store to grab a few things on my way to work, and I passed a display of six packs on sale. "Hm," I thought to myself, "Oberon is on sale. I'll have to pick some up later."

"Wait... Oberon?"

Bell's is back in Illinois. When did this happen? Is it back in Chicago or just down here?

I have got to get out of the house more often.

They got into a pissing match with their distributor a couple of years ago. They decided to solve it by riding out the rest of the contract. There were signs all over Chicago at the end of last year as they were allowed to return at the turn of the year, including at the place I work. With my celiac disease, I'm not supposed to drink beer, but I think that the Two Hearted Ales are worth it.

The two year absence seems to have added to their legend. I think they're hotter now than before they left.
