Time to skate over from pilsner to lager and a beer you will find all over the country in Sam Adams Winter Lager.
“Same old holiday? Not this year. Sam Adams Winter Lager is brewed with cinnamon and orange peel — no baking required. Full-bodied, festive flavors and smooth as a sleigh ride, bring an unexpected twist to your holiday parties.”
When I heard the news that Sam Adams Boston Lager had a recipe overhaul, part of me thought, in a Bostonian accent, what’s the big deal.
Recipes morph and evolve as the years pass, especially such a legacy beer like Boston Lager. But Sam Adams (maybe using some Truly money) has added a fun marketing twist to the change by tying the bright (supposedly) new taste with a brighter Boston attitude.
Of course Sam Adams and Dogfish Head have a sharing pipeline, that is not so strange and of course the Minute IPAs and Utopias are obvious as where to go first but I am still kinda on the fence about…..
….this seems to be more battle royale than melding of flavors.
For those who have not had Utopia from Sam Adams, well this is new collaboration with business partner, Dogfish Head might be a close approximation for you to try. Not that World Wide Stout is something to sneeze at.
