Brewery Update: News from Boston Beer Company
Brewery Update from Boston Beer Company
What’s on Tap:
- Boston Beer Company is defining the beer recipie for the collaboration with Weihenstephan.
- Beer Lover’s Choice is heating up, it’s a close race thus far between the American Rye and the Belgian IPA. The winner will be the next addition to the Samuel Adams family of beer.
- OctoberFest has started shipping, along with the fall Harvest Collection variety pack.
- Longshot winner will be selected in September at the GABF in Denver, Colorado.
We’re torn…we need your help.
Tasting and voting continues in the 6th annual Beer Lover’s Choice competition. It’s too early yet to call a winner. We’re not privy to the totals, but rumor has it that the American Rye is slightly ahead at this point without all precincts reporting. We’re split, I love the rye while Bert favors the Belgian IPA.
Voting continues through September so make sure your voice is heard. To learn more about the brews or to find out where to go to cast your vote visit our Beer Lover’s Choice Page to find a judging event near you.
Fall in love with Fall
Not that we’re ever ready for summer to end, but there has always been one great reason to look towards the fall: Samuel Adams OctoberFest.
Well this year, we can give you another great reason: Samuel Adams Harvest Collection Variety Pack. We’re talking about some damn good beers in this 12 pack: 2 bottles each of some our absolute favorite styles:
Boston Lager, OctoberFest, Dunkelweizen, Irish Red, Black Lager, and our new Harvest Pumpkin Ale.
Definitely one to stock up on in our opinion!
Beer of the Month: Sam Adams Irish Red
Finishes smooth. Samuel Adams Irish Red is brewed with two-row Harrington, Metcalfe, and Copeland pale malts, and Caramel 60 malt. The blend of pale malts provides most of the body and backbone of the beer, while the generous portion of Caramel 60 contributes to the deep red color and caramel sweetness that defines the style.
To balance all of that sweetness, we use earthy East Kent Goldings and English Fuggles hops. Their subtle bitterness and aroma provide a delicate complexity to the brew.
Samuel Adams Irish Red finishes smooth and leaves you wanting to take another sip. See more at www.samueladams.com
Quote of the Month:
“From man’s sweat and God’s love, beer came into the world.” – Saint Arnold of Metz, The patron Saint of Brewers
