Extra Special Bitter (ESB)
Availability: Coming Soon!
A traditional ESB, Blue Bell Bitter showcases the full flavor potential of heirloom Maris Otter malt alongside Goldings hops and our house English ale yeast. Together, these ingredients produce a flavor profile all at once sweet, bitter, earthy, fruity, and rich with deep, biscuit malt character. Blue Bell's name references a line in the Grateful Dead classic "Sugar Magnolia", one of the namesakes of Magnolia Brewing. It's the first beer ever brewed at Magnolia.
Food Pairing: grilled and roasted meats, cheddar cheese, and fried fish
Very balanced beer in malt and hop bitterness. Full bodied with fruity and sweeter aromas and flavors. Even thought 'bitter' is in the name, it's not an overly bitter beer.
