I now realize why Quinannan Falls typically never leaves Bell's Brewery

Remember that special Bell's beer we discussed last week?

Well, it made its into the Philly market for a guest appearance alongside many of its typical traveling Bell's Beer brethren from Kalamazoo, Michigan.

On Saturday, the last stop along a multi-stop construction progress update tour (more on that coming soon) was in Norristown where Mr. Capone turned over a few beers that I'd forgotten he was holding for me.

That's when I remembered that Capone's was one of the handful of accounts that received this beer. Fortunate #2 was having an empty growler in the car, my precautionary just-in-case.

Turns out, it's pretty obvious why this Quinannan Falls Special Lager Beer never leaves the home brewpub: It's one heckuva tasty and well-made beer.

It's a clean lager with bready notes; it's pleasantly hoppy; it's the good kind of easy-drinking. And at 6.4% ABV, it's just low enough that it can get me happily through Phillies postseason baseball.

If there's anything else hiding out there in Kalamazoo, feel free to send it our way and we'll be glad to offer our opinion.

Hopefully, you've all had a chance to track some of this down while it's been in the Philly region.
