This Line Of Planetary Beers Is The Best Way To Explore The Universe

Planet beers

Have you had a drink from every planet in our solar system? You’ll be able to answer “yes” to that question soon if you imbibe Bell’s Brewery’s Planet Series of beers. They’ve developed the flavor for each of the brews based on Gustav Holst’s The Planets, Op. 32. The orchestral suite was completed in 1916, and I imagine Holst never thought it would inspire beer. The descriptions are 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

You’ll be able to taste The Planets starting in August. Listen to the music that inspired it after the break…
