Bell's makes my favorite beers. (Actually, they make one of the only beers my non-beer-drinking wife likes too.) Unfortunately it's going to be harder to get them. The franchise to sell Bell's in Illinois, was apparently put up for sale. They buyer was a large "less than friendly" company that the owner of Bell's didn't want to work with, so he's pulling the beer from Illinois as a form of protest.
Chicagoist has more.
Chicagoist - The Bell's in the Distance
While I applaud Mr. Bell's decision, I'm saddened by the effect it will have on us, the people who appreciate good beer.
