When Larry Bell got his brewery up and running in the '80s, did he know what an institution it would become? How many beer drinkers thought Blue Moon, Killian's and Newcastle were as far outside the vast landscape of domestic lager we were allowed to travel? Then someone introduced you to a bottle or bought you a pint of Oberon, Two Hearted, or Third Coast Old Ale. We cannot get enough of Two Hearted's crisp cascade of hoppy IPA perfection, and the profile of the Third Coast barley wine still blows our mind. But as Detroiters and Michiganders, the adoration out there for the cloudy golden nectar that is Oberon makes it the undisputed favorite.
