A post I’m following on a Michigan craft beer enthusiasts board on Facebook just had the “Godfather of Michigan Beer” chime in on the post. Yes, THE Larry James Bell, founder of Bell’s Beer!
Me at Bell’s Brewery (Kalamazoo, MI) in July
Apparently, Bell’s has been unable to distribute in Virginia, which has bothered some beer drinkers down there…especially Michigan expatriates. I can speak first hand about Virginia’s craft beer scene not comparing to Michigan’s craft beer scene – not by a long shot. Though it has come quite a way, from what I hear!
Larry Bell said this dispute could drag on for a while. Maybe I’ll have to drive down some truck loads of Bell’s Two Hearted to Virginia to sell to the highest bidders (JK)! Hey, runnin’ hooch is in my blood (great grandparents were bootleggers). Where did I put my overalls?
Maybe some day I’ll meet this “beerlebrity!” 😆
