Bell Ringer Ale
I found this South Carolina craft brew at a local grocery that has a superb selection of beer, ale, stout, etc. from around the world. I had to bring home a bottle due to its name. Here are two photos I captured at home.
Their web site provides the following history of the microbrewery:
RJ Rockers Brewing Company became Spartanburg's first brewery in 1997, when owner and brewer Mark Johnsen set out on a mission to provide the people of the Upstate with the best microbrewed beer they had ever tasted. Mark, a New Jersey native, had loved brewing beer for his friends and family for years.
Following his service in the 1991 Gulf War, Mark was stationed in Germany as a member of the United States armed forces, and he took this opportunity to learn as much as possible about brewing from the experts. By the time he was honorably discharged from the service, he was ready to take his beer to the public. Our online presence is also very strong as we can now connect straight to Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and LinkedIn.
I have not sampled it yet, so you'll have to wait for my review.
