Dubbed “The Planets Series,” the forthcoming ale project will feature seven different beers each inspired by a different piece of music from the composer Gustav Holst.  Each beer will be limited and released both in six-packs and on draft.

“The first Planet beer will be released this August with each successive entry debuting about every two months after,” reads a recent post on Bell’s official website.  “The final beer is scheduled for release in July 2015.”
