Bell’s Brewery to Debut ‘Planet Series’


This August, Bell’s Brewing Company will unveil their brand new ‘Planet Series’ to star-struck craft beer lovers.

According to Bell’s, the new ‘Planet Series’ “will feature seven different beers each inspired by a different piece of music from the composer Gustav Holst. Each beer will be limited and released both in six-packs and on draft according to the arrangement of Holst’s composition across all areas we distribute to.”

You can listen to the musical piece right here!

Bell’s will debut the first beer in the series this August with each successive beer to be released about every two months after. The final beer is scheduled for release in July 2015.

This entire series should be very successful for Bell’s and should be well received by craft beer lovers everywhere.

According to Bell’s President, Larry Bell, “Our two most successful brands come from a couple of my great literary references. This time, I took inspiration from a great piece of music,”  and continued with This piece, being in seven movements, gives us a lot of freedom to innovate and create.” 

The ‘Planet Series’ lineup is as follows:

Mars, The Bringer of War” – Double IPA


Venus, The Bringer of Peace” – A Blonde Ale brewed with honey, apricot, vanilla and cardamom

Mercury, The Winged Messenger” – A Belgian Single

Jupiter, The Bringer of Jollity” – A malt forward Brown Ale

Saturn, The Bringer of Old Age” – A Bourbon Barrel-aged Barleywine

Uranus, The Magician” – Black Double IPA

Neptune, The Mystic” – A beer inspired by Dr. Bell’s Medicinal Stout, one of Larry Bell’s homebrews that also helped inspire Eccentric Ale

As a self-professed astronomy lover, I cannot wait for this beer series. I really enjoy a good theme when it comes to beer (similar to what Ommegang is doing with their Game of Thrones series), and this one is sure to be exciting.

We will keep our eyes turned to the heavens in August for the Bell’s ‘Planet Series’!
