(WXYZ) — If you're sick of the winter already, Bell's Brewery has announced the 2019 release calendar which includes release dates for Oberon, the Double Two Hearted Ale in bottles and many more.

According to Bell's Oberon will release on March 25, and a newly-designed mini keg will follow later in the summer, usually around Memorial Day.

In February, the brewery will release Bell's Official Hazy IPA and it will be their newest year-round offering.

Later in the year, the debut of bottles for the Double Two Hearted Ale will arrive. It's a the classic Two Hearted Ale, but a double IPA, shipping in July.

“This is just a preview of coming attractions, though not all of them are ready to share just yet. We still have a few more surprises to come,” Larry Bell, President and Founder of Bell’s Brewery said. “A few years ago we debuted The Planets Series, beers inspired by the work of Gustav Holst. This year, we’re going to introduce a new series inspired by the arts, but this time a little closer to home.”

There will be new packaging options this year, according to Bell's, as well as new looks for some classic beers.
