SAMUEL ADAMS WINTER CLASSIC

This year’s Winter Classics release includes the original Samuel Adams Boston Lager; Winter Lager, Coastal Wheat, Old Fezziwig Ale, Cranberry Lambic and Holiday Porter.  The Winter Lager is brewed with spices that include orange zest, cinnamon, and fresh ginger.  The Coastal Wheat is a twist on the Hefeweizen style, complimented by unique Eureka and Lisbon varieties of lemon from three different growing regions in California.  The citrus from the lemons balances out the character of the brewery’s own wheat malt.  Old Fezziwig Ale is filled with spices of the season – cinnamon, ginger, and orange peel.  The full flavor has a deep malt character ranging from sweeter toffee and caramel notes to the darker, roasty chocolate notes.  Samuel Adams Cranberry Lambic is a Belgian-style fruit beer with a flavor rich in fruitiness and reminiscent of cranberries, bananas, cloves, and nutmeg.  The Holiday Porter is a flavorful brew made with a special blend of four malts that balance the English Noble hops.  Available from Atlas Distributing, Burke Distributing, Commercial Distributing, L. Knife & Son and Merrimack Valley Distributing.
