Sam Adams Newsletter


Hey Badassbeer!

Happy October! We’ve had a really great month here at the Boston Brewery. We kicked it off at the Great American Beer Fest in Denver, CO where two of our beers, Double Bock and Tetravis, were awarded gold medals! We also made some pretty exciting announcements at the festival, including our 2014 LongShot American Homebrew Contest winners and we also named our Brewing the American Dream Experienceship craft brewer (more on those below). We hope you enjoy this month’s edition of What’s on Tap!




LongShot American Homebrew Contest Winners

The LongShot American Homebrew Contest began as a way for us to recognize and honor American homebrewers who continue to push the boundaries of what beer can be, just as Jim did 30 years ago in his kitchen as he homebrewed the first batches of Boston Lager.

This year’s winning beers are:

Greg Rasmussen’s Robust Porter (Forestville, CA)

Matthew Knott’s Classic Rauchbier (Smithtown, NY)

John Marra’s Dunkelweiss (Samuel Adams Employee based in Brooklyn, NY)

This year’s winners offer three unique and distinct brews that will be made available nationwide next spring as part of the 2015 Samuel Adams LongShot variety six-pack. Congratulations to our three winners and thank you to all of the homebrewers who entered their beers! Stay tuned for details about next year’s competition!

To learn more about the winning beers, visit the Samuel Adams blog.




OctoberFest Stein Hoisting

The Oktoberfest celebration in Munich may be over for this year, but we’re still having drinkers duke it out in our National Stein Hoisting competition to crown a male and female champion to send to next year’s celebration.

Think you can hoist a full liter stein longer than anyone else? Visit our website to check out the national leaderboard and to find an official Samuel Adams Stein Hoisting event near you.



Kosmic Mother Funk Grand Cru Tour – Vote Now!

We’ve had a great time taking Kosmic Mother Funk (KMF) Grand Cru on the road on our cross country, 12-city tour. We’ve mapped out the first 11 cities where we’re tapping KMF kegs, but you get to decide the final stop. Nominations have been pouring into our website! Right now Kansas City, Missouri and Trenton, New Jersey are neck and neck in the top spot, but the battle isn’t over. Voting ends on October 17th, so be sure to get yours in!

Brewing the American Dream Craft Brewer’s Experienceship

Congratulations to our Samuel Adams Brewing the American Dream Brewing and Business Experienceship winners: founder and head brewer Grant Fraley and co-founder and CEO Marta Jankowska of ChuckAlek Independent Brewers.

ChuckAlek Independent Brewers opened its doors in January of 2013 in Ramona, CA. Named after their grandfathers, Chuck and Alek, the brewery pulls some of the past into the present by creating “Old School Beers for New School Palates.”

Similar to an extended internship, our annual Experienceship provides one craft brewer with hands-on educational and enrichment experiences that are tailored to their individual business needs. Brewers that apply and are selected travel to our Boston Brewery for extensive coaching from our team on various areas such as ingredients sourcing, quality assurance, brewing, sales and distribution, among others. Past winners include Brewery Rickoli in Denver, CO and Roc Brewing Co. in Rochester, NY, and MateVeza in San Francisco, CA.

This rich brew indulges in flavor with over 28 lbs. of real pumpkin per barrel, for a full bodied sweetness and deep russet color. Classic pumpkin pie spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice ignite a warmth that’s deepened by an undercurrent of roasty smoked malts. The result is a delectable brew full of enveloping layers of flavor and spice.

Samuel Adams OctoberFest Smoked German Mustard

Kris Schoenberger, owner and grill master at BBQ’d Productions, a small business that participates in our Brewing the American Dream program, put together a really great mustard recipe made with our OctroberFest. It’s awesome with pretzels or as a condiment on hot dogs or hamburgers at your next tailgate.


DIRECTIONS: Mix the OctoberFest beer and brown mustard seeds in a pot on the stove, bring to a boil and then simmer for 20 minutes. After simmering, turn off heat and allow the seeds to soak in the beer for one hour. Pour seed and beer mixture into a blender and puree until you reach a smooth consistency, with a little grain still left. In a mixing bowl, mix together the water and malt vinegar and then add the dry mustard, brown sugar, onion powder, garlic powder, hickory smoke flavoring, and black pepper. Take the mixture from the mixing bowl and mix well with the OctoberFest and brown mustard seed puree. Pour into a glass jar or container. The mustard will remain good for up to one month as long as it is stored in the refrigerator.

  • Ingredients (Serves 8):
  • 1 1/2 Cups Samuel Adams OctoberFest
  • 1 Cup Brown Mustard Seeds
  • 1 Cup Water
  • 1/2 Cup Malt Vinegar
  • 1/2 Cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 Cup dry yellow mustard
  • 1 TBSP onion Powder
  • 1 TBSP Garlic Powder
  • 1 TBSP Hickory Smoke Flavoring
  • 1 TBSP Black Pepper

Sam Adams News Letter


Hey Badassbeer!

For many beer fans out there, fall is really the most wonderful time of the year – and we won’t argue there! We’ve been busily brewing OctoberFest (and of course, raising a stein or two) as well as our other fall beers. But that’s not all we’ve been working on – we just kicked off a 12 city tour of Kosmic Mother Funk Grand Cru and also released a new variety pack called Adventures in Lager that we think you’ll really enjoy (more on the tour and the pack below). So without further ado, enjoy this month’s edition of What’s on Tap!




Celebrate Octoberfest with us!

Our stein hoisting competition is back for another season as we search high and low for two national champions to send to the Oktoberfest celebration in Munich! Visit our website to check out the national leaderboard and to find a stein hoist near you.

Can’t get enough OctoberFest? We have some great OctoberFest gear in our new e-store! From a ceramic stein to lederhosen t-shirts, we have plenty of gear for you or the OctoberFest fans in your life. Check out the e-store here.



KMF Grand Cru Tour

Kosmic Mother Funk (or as we sometimes call it, “KMF”) is a unique Belgian ale, aged in Hungarian oak tuns for over a year and fermented with multiple micro-organisms found in the environment of our historic 150-year old Boston Brewery. This unique brew is blended at varying levels into each of our Barrel Room Collection beers. For the first time, we’re releasing a batch of KMF Grand Cru and taking it on a mini coast-to-coast tour of 12 U.S. cities. Visit the website for the full schedule and vote to have KMF Grand Cru come to your city! Attending a KMF Grand Cru event? Be sure to use hashtag #KMFtour to let us know what you think!



Adventures in Lager

Lagers are very near and dear to our hearts, so we decided to brew a variety pack that showcases their versatility across several styles. Starting off with our flagship Boston Lager, and adding some oomph to some other favorite styles and new creations, we think you’ll be as excited about these brews as we are.

Boston Lager: Jim Koch’s family recipe is full-flavored with a balance of malty sweetness contrasted by hop spiciness and a smooth finish.

Double Black: Cloaked in mystery and darkness, this style was originally stored in deep caves in the shadowy forests of Germany. Our double version is dark, rich, and roasty with a full body and subtle notes of caramel and chocolate that is accented by an unexpected and crisp finish. Dark in color and smooth in flavor, this beer shows that looks can be deveining.

Double Pilsner: Our audacious single hop brew uses an abundance of Hallertau Mittelfrueh Noble hops – almost 12lbs per barrel – to give this beer an unmatched flavor dimension and complexity. This prized hop is one of the original varieties from the Bavarian growing region, revered for its unique spicy and citrus character.

Helles Bock: This brawny Helles Bock has a firm malt backbone and toasty biscuit notes accompanied by subtle, spicy hop bitterness. There is a softer side to this big brew as it finishes with lighter notes of honey.

The Vixen: Dark, rich, and enticing with a spicy kick, this cocoa colored brew is full-bodied, roasty, and slightly sweet. The smooth richness of dark cocoa is blended with cinnamon and the subtle spice and heat of chilies for a flavorful and vibrant brew.

Noble Pils: Each of the five Noble hop varieties used in this brew adds a slightly different aroma and flavor to the beer, from citrus and spice to pine and floral. The result is a boldly flavorful pilsner that’s crisp, complex and refreshing.

Adventures in Lager is available now for a limited time, both in 24 packs and on draft at beer festivals across the country.

Pumpkin ale is one of the oldest American beer styles. Early colonists lacked some of the classic beer ingredients, so in place of malt, other fermentable sugars like sweet potato, squash, and pumpkin were used. For our Harvest Pumpkin brew, we use a significant portion of real pumpkin. The pumpkin works with the malts, including our two-row pale malts, Caramel 60, Special B, and a smoked malt, to create body and sweetness with a roasty and nutty character. Once in the kettle, we add classic pumpkin pie spices like clove, cinnamon, ginger, allspice, and nutmeg to give it the spicy warmth of fall.

Check out our Find a Sam page to find Harvest Pumpkin Ale near you.


In our opinion, there is no better Samuel Adams experience than the one you get here at the Boston Brewery. Come learn about our history, the brewing process and, of course, taste some of our award winning beers.

Throwback Brewery – Hankie’s Pale Ale, Cool Beer Truck, and more!

Our Beer Truck!

For those of you that follow us on Facebook or Instagram, you’ve probably seen a few pictures of our ‘new’ Divco beer truck. We are pretty excited about this beauty! It is a 1963 milk truck which has been restored, beautifully painted with our logo and colors, and fitted with four taps!

What you might not know is that you can rent the truck for parties- weddings, private events, birthday parties, you name it! We would deliver the truck and set everything up for you. The truck has already been a big hit at a recent wedding and a beer fest.

Interested? Shoot us an email and we can chat pricing and availability.

Introducing the Brand New Hankie’s Pale Ale

We hope everyone has been having a relaxing and enjoyable Summer! As you might expect, our Summer has been filled with beerfests, work on expansion plans for Hobbs Farm, and, of course lots and lots of brewing!

If you are thinking about visiting, now would be a great time! We have Spicy Bohemian coming back on tap today, one of our all time favorite beers (Red Rover Coffee Milk Stout – a lusciously smooth, roasty treat) also on tap now, plus a brand new beer called Hankie’s Pale Ale.

Hankie’s is a refreshing, highly drinkable, and nicely balanced pale ale with a great hop crispness and a distinct citrus nose. We dry hopped the beer with Citra & Palisades, which contribute hints of stone fruit (especially apricot) and a balanced bitter kick, turning what could be a relatively simple and somewhat lighter weight beer into a beer with a great character and taste. And, at 4.7%, this beer is quite sessionable.

This beer is named in memory of Hank, who was Nicole’s dog. You can read more about the story behind this beer here – http://throwbackbrewery.com/hankies-pale-ale/.
 
When you stop by the brewery, let us know what you think of our latest beer. We love it, and hope you do too! Cheers!

Portsmouth Brewery Newsletter

Fall beers are brewing,
but the patio is still open!
 

Notice Anything Different?

Welcome the new Portsmouth Brewery Newsletter, PBrew News!

We’ve recently decided to separate the Portsmouth Brewery news and Smuttynose news; they had a great run together, but not everyone needs or wants both updates. If you’ve been along term subscriber, please click the profile update at the top of this email and let us know which news you prefer. If you signed up via the Portsmouth Brewery’s new website, you’ll need to update as well, to keep up with Smuttynose’s new beer releases, events around the world and happenings at the new Towle Farm brewery. Otherwise, we’ll see you soon at Portsmouth Brewery!

Autumn brings some of the most sought-after and seasonal flavors in the beer world- wet hops! Head Brewer Matt and his team are brewing two different versions of our popular Hop Harvest (5.5%) ale. The first is a single batch featuring a new hop called Equinox, while the second iteration is double brew of the same recipe highlighting the variety Mosaic. There is no other time of the year to enjoy the unique juciiness of freshly picked hops, so make sure you get some Hop Harvest in your growlers this fall!

The great lager streak of 2014 continues! As you read this, 434 gallons of our Oktoberfest (5%) is conditioning in the cellar, while we wait for a call from Blueberry Bay Farm of Stratham, NH. That phone call means 400 pounds of pumpkins are ready to be picked up and put in beer! What beer? Pumpkin Ale (5%) and Imperial Pumpkin Porter (9.9%) will both be double brewed so there’ll be plenty of both to go around. The Portsmouth Brewery proudly uses fresh, locally-grown, chemical-free pumpkins in all our “gourd-geous” pumpkin beers.

If all this isn’t enough, Matt will be home-smoking 55 pounds of malt with a blend of applewood, oak and maple for the next brew of Scotch Ale (8.5%) which will be released later on this fall.

Keep an eye on Facebook and Twitter so you know when these beers go on tap!

Svelte, huh? Portsmouth Brewery cycling jerseys are now available at 56 Market and on our swanky new website.  We’ve also got new hats and fresh t-shirt designs waiting for you. 
Chef John says we’ve had one of the busiest summers of our 23-year history. He asked to share a very loud, public “THANK YOU” to his kitchen staff. Now that summer is winding down, we’re planning our fall/winter/spring beer socials. Rolf, Des and Jon have some great ideas, but we haven’t set anything in stone.

If you’ve got ideas for beer socials you’d like to see at Portsmouth Brewery, please share them via Twitter (@portsbrew) or on our Facebook page

We don’t often make it out of 56 Market Street, but Chef Jon and/or Head Brewer Matt will be representing at these upcoming downtown Portsmouth events.

Vintage & Vine- September 6 at Strawberry Banke; serving pulled duck sliders on a homemade pretzel roll with house apple butter.

Passport- September 13 at Strawbery Banke; 5C’s IPA paired with house pretzel bites and a homemade cheddar-ale sauce plus a cask of Portsmouth Brewery ESB dry-hopped with East Kent Goldings in the VIP tent.

At Portsmouth Brewery, we believe it’s easy to do good while drinking well. Every Tuesday is Community Pint Day, when we donate 25 cents from every pint of beer to your choice of four non profits. Currently on the box are:

Post Landfill Action Network
Child & Family Services of New Hampshire
Portsmouth Zero Waste 
Officer Stephen Arkell Memorial Fund

The civic-mindedness isn’t limited to Tuesdays; everyday is Parking Violation Day! Just bring in your City of Portsmouth Parking ticket and the required payment. We’ll mail it in for you and give you a pint for being a responsible citizen.

Smuttynose Newsletter

Small batch, wood-aged funk releases this Saturday at the new brewery. See you there?

Heads Up, Funky Beer Junkies!

Brett & I, the newest Smuttlabs beer, is ready for release!

This 6%, barrel-aged, golden beer takes 13 months to make. Why? After an initial fermentation with out house Trappist ale yeast, this entire batch was transferred to red wine barrels where it was inoculated with Brettanomyces Bruxellensis, a yeast first discovered in barrel-aged British beers. During the slow, long secondary fermentation, “Brett Brux” produces a slightly sour, earthy flavor profile which makes Brett & I such a rare treat.

We will be selling all 24 cases from our Towle Farm brewery beginning Saturday, August 2 at 11am. The crown-finished, 375ml bottles are $12 each and there is no bottle limit. We won’t be filling growlers due to the small amount of beer we have.

Don’t worry about not living near the brewery. A small amount of kegs will be shipping to our wholesalers in CT, DC, IL, MA MD, ME, NC, NH, NY, PA, VA and VT beginning Monday, August 4. 

This is our third release of Brett & I, which means some of your are looking forward to its return and some of you may just be hearing about this delicious beer. We hope all of you enjoy!
