Rebel Raw is BACK!

Rebel Raw_Second ReleaseI’m psyched to let you know that we just brewed and canned our second batch of Rebel Raw Double IPA. We heard from drinkers who got their hands on the first batch that they really liked it. So, we brewed a little more and are sharing this batch with a few new beer-loving cities.

So, what do you need to know?

DRINK NOW!

Rebel Raw has a 35-day shelf life – our shortest shelf life to date. If you find it, drink it immediately! Hops lose their flavor and aromatic character over time and we want IPA fans to enjoy this DIPA as fresh as possible in order to really experience its wide range of hop flavors and aromas. Read More

Boston 26.2 Brew Officially Tapped for the 2016 Boston Marathon!

POS_SAM_MARATHON_262BrewLogo_2016 (1)Patriots’ Day will always hold a special place in my heart – it was on that day in 1985 that I officially released the first batch of Samuel Adams Boston Lager. So whenever I see runners crossing the finish line on Marathon Monday, I’m reminded of my starting line 31 years ago.

As our city marks the 120th running of the Boston Marathon, and our fifth year as a proud partner, we’re excited to bring back our commemorative race beer – Boston 26.2 Brew.  We brewed this year’s batch to help toast the runners, spectators, Bostonians and race volunteers of the 2016 Boston Marathon.

A Limited Release Collaboration Beer: Time Hop Porter

ChuckAlekWe are excited to announce the release of Samuel Adams Time Hop Porter™, a limited-edition hopped porter brewed in collaboration with San Diego based brewery, ChuckAlek Independent Brewers!

Husband and wife team at ChuckAlek, Grant Fraley and Marta Jankowski, are committed to their mission of making “Old School Beers for New School Palates.”  ChuckAlek’s brewery is based just outside of San Diego and they recently announced their official plans to open a second location in San Diego to be called, ChuckAlek Biergarten!

It has truly been an awesome year for Grant and Marta as they were also selected as the recipients of the Samuel Adams Brewing the American Dream Brewing and Business Experienceship. As part of the program, the ChuckAlek team came to our Boston Brewery in May to receive coaching from the our Brewery team and collaborate with us on a beer – Time Hop Porter.

“We learned so much about business planning and moving our brewery forward in the few days we had with the Sam Adams team,” Marta said about her time spent in Boston. “The advice and mentoring is already having a positive impact on our business as we look toward opening our next tasting room. Our favorite part about the whole experience was developing the recipe for Time Hop Porter and brewing the collaboration beer at the Boston Brewery.” Read More
