Sam Fan Recipes featuring Harvest Pumpkin Ale

Happy Friday (and National Drink Beer Day)! As we head into the weekend (looks to be a rainy one here in Boston) we wanted to pass along a baking recipe that may hit the spot for the cooling temperature. From the kitchen of Sam Adams drinker Steve C. of Gahanna, Ohio, here is a great pumpkin spice beer bread that features our Samuel Adams Harvest Pumpkin Ale, which is currently available in the Harvest Collection variety pack and standalone 6-pack.

Fall Tailgating with Our Boston Lager Cut

Grilling is undoubtedly one of the greatest culinary triumphs of summer, so why let the BBQ fade away when the cooler weather rolls in?  As we’re easing into fall (and FOOTBALL!), consider the other great grilling season, fall tailgating, with the Boston Lager Cut packages that our friends from Robinson’s Prime Reserve have put together.

Beer and meat… does it get any better?

Developed by artisanal meat purveyor Jake Dickson of Dickson’s Farmstand Meatsin NYC, the Boston Lager cut is designed to be the ideal beef counterpart to our flagship Boston Lager.  The brew’s upfront malt flavor matches the caramelized flavors of the meat, and its hoppy finish prepares the palate for the next bite.  The beef and beer intersect with great caramel notes and sweetness, while the elegant hoppiness of our Boston Lager finishes the rich, meaty flavor of the cut.

Taco Tuesday featuring Harvest Pumpkin Ale!

For the third month we’ve come together with a local Boston food truck, Pennypackers Food Truck, to create a taco using one of our beers. The previous installments provided awesome recipes for shredded pork tacos with a Dark Depth’s Baltic IPA barbeque sauce and lemongrass chicken tacos cooked in Verloren.

To honor the changing of the seasons here in New England, this month we gave the guys our Harvest Pumpkin Ale, a fall favorite that is brewed with over 17 pounds of real pumpkin per barrel and traditional pumpkin pie spices, adding a full body and spicy sweetness to this dark reddish amber brew.  Pennypackers decided to match the distinct roast and spice character with beef short ribs to create a contrasting experience for fall.
