I know this is stateside news but figured some folks on the forum might take an interest. It's a sad day.

They make Bells Two Hearted that has been voted best beer in America by the American Home Brewers Association 4 years in a row.

I've also made a pole on your thought of Bells Two Hearted and your opinion if you've had it.

Bell’s Brewery, one of the most well-known craft brewing companies in the U.S., announced Wednesday it’s being sold to a subsidiary of Japanese beverage giant Kirin, marking the latest instance in a trend of craft breweries getting purchased by large companies.
