Our Collaboration with New Jersey’s Flounder Brewing to bring you Devil’s Nectah!

Devils NectahWe’re excited to announce the release of Devil’s Nectah, a limited-edition cranberry-honey helles lager brewed with New Jersey-based brewery Flounder Brewing Co.

This delicious collaboration beer is the culmination of a year-long program, the Samuel Adams Brewing the American Dream Brewing and Business Experienceship, which provides one small craft brewer annually with hands-on brewing and business coaching.

Our brewers collaborated with Jeremy “Flounder” Lees, brewer and founder of Flounder Brewing Co., and his team on this dynamic new brew inspired by local produce. At 5.2% abv, the unique lager is brewed with Jersey Fresh® honey and Massachusetts cranberries to create a bright, tart flavor to complement a subtly sweet base with a soft, round finish. Read More

Bugs & Berries: A Samuel Adams and Mikkeller Collaboration

Bugs & BerriesThe idea to brew Bugs & Berries was really a collaboration between our team in Boston and Mikkel Borg Bjergsø from Mikkeller Brewery in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Brewed exclusively for the 2016 Copenhagen Beer Celebration in Boston, MA, we teamed up to bring a one-of-a-kind beer to the festival for its inaugural year in the states. And what better way to celebrate a little bit of Copenhagen in the U.S. than to brew a beer that has ingredients from both countries in it.

Bugs & Berries was born from the idea of blending 2 beers made of 2 bugs (yeast strains) and 2 berries. Yeast and cherries from Frederiksdal Estate in Harpelunde, Denmark were shipped to Boston and used to make the first beer. The second beer was brewed using yeast from Walden, New York, and strawberries from a few select farms, including one local farm in Groton, MA. Read More
