Finding Samuel Adams® Boston 26.2 Brew in Boston

Boston 262 Brew LogoWith one of the most revered and challenging races in the world quickly approaching, we’re happy to announce that we are brewing our Samuel Adams Boston 26.2 Brew again this year to celebrate the running of the 117th Boston Marathon®.

The beer is going to be available EXCLUSIVELY at official race-related events, as well as at the following bars and restaurants along the Marathon route and in the Greater-Boston Area (see up-to-date list below).

For those curious (or need a reminder from last year) of what Boston 26.2 Brew tastes like… it’s a Gose style which dates back to the year 700.  Boston 26.2 Brew offers a lighter body with a slightly lower alcohol level (4.5% ABV) than many of our other styles – it turned out to be the perfect compliment for the record heat we experienced in 2012! In terms of flavor, drinkers enjoy light cereal notes from malted and unmalted wheat, rounded out by a spicy, peppery character with a soft mineral quality from a touch of salt. The result is an unusual and delicate brew that is full of flavors to discover… and worth crossing the finish line for.

  1. Ronald Korrel says:

    Whish it was available her n te Netherlands, any Samuel Adams..

  2. Helen says:

    So sad. Two places in Stoughton and none in JP, West Roxbury or Roslindale!

  3. Chad says:

    The Fireplace in Brookline in Washington Square will be tapping their 26.2 Keg in the coming weeks as well!

  4. Mike says:

    The Hill Tavern in Beacon Hill tapped it this morning.

  5. Ponch says:

    This beer is Excellent….nice fruit but with reasonable finish. A better, smoother, fruitier and more-fun Belgium white…but not over-blown. Loved it. I had it at Jimmy’s on Beacon St in Brookline. Is there any chance this will stick around and get bottled? In my opinion, best Sam beer since Boston Lager.

  6. Vincenzo Lo Grasso says:

    Thank you, very much for the informayion.

  7. Steven Golub says:

    In light of what took place yesterday may I suggest that you come out with a special beer and donate the profits to help those who were injured by the terrorist events from yesterday.

  8. Marcie says:

    We were hoping to celebrate my brother’s finish with the 26.2 brew, but didn’t get the chance. My heart goes out to those families affected by the events on Monday.

  9. Pedro says:

    We want it here in Florida! What you guys are doing is World Class

  10. Ryan says:

    Is this being bottled. I’m in NJ, but want to get some in support of Boston…

  11. Is there any bottles of 26.2 being sold anywhere? I ran this year and would love to get some..

  12. jennifer says:

    is this list current???

    • Sam Adams Editorial Team says:

      Yes Jennifer. Some locations may have sold through their kegs, so you may want to call ahead if you are planning on traveling a fair distance to find some.

  13. Jason Bassett says:

    Let us know if you decide to bottle it. I think it would be a big seller.

  14. Allison says:

    I agree, I think this should be bottled. It is my favorite Sam. And not only would it do great business but it would mean a lot to city of Boston and all who call it home. I’m currently out of state for work and I would definitely have my friends buy cases for me so I could have it when I get home.

  15. I also think you should print T-Shirts with the logo!

  16. Dan says:

    Any idea if this is still available anywhere? What would be a similar summer beer that you do bottle? Thanks!

  17. Pearse McIntyre says:

    Cheers on beacon hill has it, and the bartenders r soo handsome

  18. Lauren says:

    Central Wharf DOES NOT have 26.2. Bartender looked at me like I was speaking Chinese when I asked!

  19. Meri Love says:

    Can you add The Bell in Hand to the list…we have it too!!!

  20. Amy says:

    Looking for bottles….is it being bottled yet (2014)?
