Bell’s Brewery, Inc., is the kind of success story beer brewers tell around the campfire.
Founded by Larry Bell as a home-brewing supply shop in 1983, Bell’s sold its first beer in 1985. Originally brewing in a 15-gallon soup kettle, the company has grown remarkably from its production of 135 barrels (1 barrel = 31 gal.) in 1986 to over 90,000 barrels in 2007. Total brewing capacity now stands at 140,000 barrels and the brewery currently sells its beer across a fifteen state area, through a network of over fifty quality wholesalers.
Over twenty years of brewing, Bell’s Brewery (the oldest craft brewer east of Boulder), has built a nationwide reputation as a creative and talented brewery, playing a significant role in changing the beerscape of the nation.
