Bell’s Brewery is taking Oberon fans to new shores with a tropical take on the summer beer.
Tropical Oberon, a variation brewed with real passion fruit, pink guava and mango, started shipping last week. It will be available in four-packs of 12-ounce bottles.
Limited edition Oberon packaging also started shipping. Those 12-packs (12-ounce bottles and cans) will transport fans to the beach, celebrating another of one of Bell’s favorite things about summer.
“Both are special treats for this year’s Oberon season and not the last surprise we have in store for our Oberon fans this year,” said Larry Bell, president and founder of Bell’s Brewery.
Those who prefer the traditional Oberon packaging will still have that option as well; fresh batches of Oberon will continue shipping until later this summer.
Tropical Oberon (5.8% ABV) is Bell’s second bottled Oberon variant release and will be limited. Mango Oberon, an American Wheat Ale also brewed with real fruit, was released in 2020.
Like Mango Oberon, Tropical Oberon was originally released as part of the Bell’s General Store Exclusive Series. All are released exclusively at the Bell’s General Store in downtown Kalamazoo.
Other variations of Oberon have included Mango Habanero Oberon, Pineapple Jalapeno, Guava, Raspberry and Cucumber Basil.
