Unafraid of the Dark V card goes on sale Saturday, 11/28!

New year, new beers! 2016 will see the fifth year of our popular Unafraid of the Dark program. For those of you not familiar with this program, here’s how it works… Starting in early January, we will begin releasing a unique batch of dark beer every two weeks, until just about the end of March. We sell ‘punch’ cards good for growler fills of six unique, limited edition dark beers. Each beer features an ingredient that is either grown at a local farm, lovingly raised in a local garden, or made by a local business. We’ll have six in total, which we hope is enough to get you (and us) through the coldest months of the year. For more info head here.

Smuttynose News Letter

We’ve got your beery plan for the day after Thanksgiving. Read this and pass it on.

Slack Friday

Everyone experiences the holidays a little bit differently. Some folks love the bustle of shopping, seasonal movies and performances, parties, friends, and family. Other people absolutely hate it. Whether you love it or hate it, the heart of the holiday season really kicks off the day after Thanksgiving, also known as Black Friday.

Smuttynose is happy to offer an alternative to stampedes at big box stores; a beer-filled respite from an over-filled house of cousins, aunts and uncles; something you can do for yourself- our second Slack Friday Celebration at our Towle Farm brewery.

On offer, for your enjoyment:

  • A Warehouse Sale of Smuttlabs, Big Beers, and Vintage bottles we’ve been aging in house. Selected Smuttlabs and Big Beer Series releases will be on special offer. We want to start 2016 with a clean warehouse and you’ll need to restock your cellar for the cold weather ahead!
  • A selection of rare Smuttynose Big Beers will go on tap at Hayseed Restaurant:
    • 2010 S’muttonator
    • 2012 Scotch Ale
    • 2010 Imperial Stout
    • 2009 Gravitation
    • 2008 Wheat Wine
  • A trial sampling of two varieties of Smudding (this is NOT an April Fool’s joke!), made by our friends at Echo Farms Pudding in Hinsdale, NH.
  • The Return of the Community Christmas Tree! Smuttynose will donate $2 to the Hampton Community Coalition for each ornament you bring to decorate the tree from Slack Friday until Christmas Eve.
  • Guaranteed turkey-free comfort food specials at Hayseed Restaurant.
  • WXGR FM will be broadcasting live from the brewery.
  • Tours and tastings will be available as usual
  • The disc golf course is open and ready for you.

Last but not least, members of Portsmouth Brewery’s Imperial Pint Club and Smuttynose Big Beer Series Subscribers will save an extra 10% of all Smerch and beer purchased at Smuttynose. Don’t forget your membership cards!

2016’s beer release schedule will be much more structured than 2015’s: 12 Smuttlabs releases, 6 Big Beers, 5 Calendar beers, and our fantastic year round offerings. There may be a few surprises in the pipeline, but officially, there’s nothing to say about things that don’t exist.

Here are the final releases for wild and wooly 2015:

  • November 14: Smuttlabs Smoked Peach Short Weisse (~7%peach berliner-style weisse beer with peaches and beechwood-smoked malt)
  • December 5: Big Beer Series Rocky Road (7.3% dessert stout brewed with cacao nibs, Fluff and aged on amaretto oak)
  • December 12: Smuttlabs Nótt (7.3% dark farmhouse ale)
  • The first new beer of 2016 is the Big Beer Series release of East Coast Common, a hoppy lager that’s been warm-fermented in the San Franciscan style. It’ll be released on January 4.

New Smerch Options!

Throwback News Letter

Throwback Brewery – Fat Alberta & Figgin’ Forty release, Pats Games in the Brew House, and more!

Our Brew House Theatre – Pats Game Tomorrow!

As we mentioned in our October email, we recently purchased a nice wide screen and a projector to show movies, events, and games in our Brew House. Given how many of our customers are Patriots fans, we decided to show all Patriots games when we are open – including tomorrow’s 4:25pm game versus the Giants! (note- even though we typically close at 7 on Sundays, we will stay open as long as the game is on!)

Here are the other games we plan to show (which are also listed in our event calendar, too!):
– Dec 6 – Versus the Eagles – 4:25pm
– Dec 13- Versus the Texans – 1:00pm
– Dec 20 – Versus the Titans – 1:00pm
– Dec 27 – Versus the Jets – 1:00pm
– Jan 3 – Versus the Dolphins- 1:00pm
– Plus playoff games!

So come on by, grab some food & beer in the pub, and bring it into the Brew House to enjoy while watching the game. We will also have our servers frequently swing through the Brew House to grab you more food & drink as you need.

Speaking of food, tomorrow’s Chef’s Whim is all about our fresh, house-made sausage. We will be offering a breakfast sausage gravy with biscuits and fried eggs, a hot italian sausage & pepper sandwich, and a turkey / apple / campari sausage with roasted long pie pumpkin and cornbread stuffing.

Hope to see you tomorrow! Go Pats!

Fat Alberta is Coming!

As soon as the leaves begin to turn and the temperatures drop, the most common question we get from folks is ‘when is Fat Alberta coming?’. For those of you not familiar with Fat Alberta, she is our Chocolate Peanut Butter Imperial Stout, and we brew her about once a year. Fat Alberta clocks in at 10%, but you wouldn’t know it! This decadent beer tastes like a chocolate peanut butter brownie. It’s great as a dessert in and of itself, or, we think even better when paired with chocolate.

So, to answer the original question, we are going to be releasing Fat Alberta on Sunday, December 13th, starting at noon. But that’s not all, on this day we will also:
– Be selling 16.9 oz bottles of Fat Alberta as well as 4 oz and 12 oz pours.
– Release bottles of our Figgin’ Forty for the first time ever! Figgin’ Forty is our chocolate fig Baltic porter. We’ve been aging this for many months now, and it’s at its prime!
– Tap a special pin (cask) of Campfire – S’mores style. Yep, we are aiming to re-create that perfect Campfire scene.
– Finally, we will have several Fat Alberta food specials designed by our talented Chef Carrie. Some of these specials will use Fat Alberta in the dishes. All food options will, of course, be delicious and pair well with our beers!

On the 13th of December, like all Sundays, we will be open 12pm to 7pm. Hope to see you at the farm!

–Annette & Nicole

Getting Ready for the Holidays!

In case you want to give a little bit of Throwback love to your friends and family this holiday season, we thought we would share with you some potential gift ideas that we are working on that should be ready by early December.

First, we’ve been getting lots of comments from folks about how much they love Chef Carrie’s beer mustards and also lots of questions about if they can bring the mustard home. As are result, we are going to start packaging some of the goodies coming out of Hobbs Farm Kitchen, including the Maple-Kissed Porter Mustard and Chef Carrie’s ultra craveable hot fudge sauce. We are working on the labels now, and hopefully can get this ready to go for the Holidays!

Second, we are going to be selling our Unafraid of the Dark cards starting on Saturday, November 28th – which is also Small Business Saturday! For those of you not familiar with this program – we sell ‘punch’ cards good for growler fills of six unique, limited edition dark beers. The beers are released every two weeks, starting the first week of January and running through the end of March. This year’s lineup includes a Black Forrest cake, which is a lagered stout with cherries, chocolate and oaky rum notes. Other beers include an Imperial Porter with fruity notes coming from local plums, a smoked apple robust porter, and a carrot cake milk stout.

Finally, look for us to package last year’s one-off Unafraid of the Dark beer El Chupbrewcabra- Mexican Chocolate Porter into bottles that as our Winter seasonal! We can’t wait for this!


Additional Upcoming Events

In addition to the Pat’s games and the Fat Alberta release already mentioned in this email, we also have the following events coming up:
– Tues, Nov 19th – Nicole will be speaking at the NH Food Alliance Statewide Gathering at LaBelle Winery in Amherst, NH
– Sat, Nov 21st – the first Winter Farmers’ Market at the Wentworth Greenhouse in Rollinsford, NH

Christmas Ale Pub Crawl: North Village Edition
Saturday, November 14 – 2:00 – 6:00 PM

Our original Christmas Ale Pub Crawl turns 21 this year. This is the granddaddy of all Pub Crawls – the one that started them all. It is the North Village Edition of our Christmas Ale Pub Crawl.

As usual, we’re utilizing our open house method. This means you’ll visit the first four stops in any order, and you’ll get your ticket at whichever stop you decide to visit first. We will only be handing out the tickets between 2:00 and 3:00. Thus, you need to begin crawling by 3:00.

At 6:00 PM, everybody will gather at the final stop, and that’s where we will award the prizes. The prize for making all five stops will be a beautiful Saint Arnold pint glass. As always, designated drivers are both eligible for the award and encouraged to attend! Here’s where you’ll find us:

Kay’s Lounge
Kelvin Arms
The Big Easy
Under the Volcano
Final Stop: Hans Bier Haus

Remember to bring cash, meet new people and always be seen with a Saint Arnold in your hand. This is the North Village Edition of the Christmas Ale Pub Crawl. Go ahead and save the date for the South Village Edition – it’ll be on Saturday, December 12.

Sailing Santa 2015 Coming Monday, November 16

It’s that time of year again when we blend our Christmas Ale with Elissa IPA and spices to create Sailing Santa, a beer originally developed by you, our customers. Years ago, people on tours began asking us to blend the two beers. We’re not certain who first called this concoction Sailing Santa, but we suspect several of you claim to be the originator. We have now added spices to the beer, changing the mix slightly from year to year.

For the 2015 version, we were able to get our hands on a brand new hop, called Snap, which is actually a blend of hops, spices and botanicals. What exactly is in there? We can’t say. How do you blend hops with spices and botanicals? We can’t say. We can tell you that the new hop, added at the end of fermentation, adds a ginger snap aroma and a complexity that makes Sailing Santa taste like the holidays.

Sailing Santa will be available in 22 oz bottles beginning Monday, November 16. There will also be some cask tappings around town. In fact, we know about a few already:

Sailing Santa Cask Tapping & Tap Takeover at Whole Foods, Waugh

Just print out this flyer or show it on your phone at the box office, and you’re in. And while you’re there, you may as well enjoy a Saint Arnold beer with your movie.

Also, no children under six will be admitted and children six and older will not be admitted without a parent or guardian. However, The Peanuts Movie is available for children three and older.

Sam Adams News Letter

Hey Badassbeer!

It seems like yesterday that we were waiting for the snow to melt here in Boston, so it’s hard to believe that Winter is right around the corner. The good news is: with Thanksgiving comes family, good food, and a rich selection of seasonal beers like Winter Lager at our fingertips. So we’re not complaining! On tap this month, we’re introducing our new Rebel Grapefruit IPA and sharing news about our next batch of Utopias. More on that below. We’re also celebrating Friendsgiving, a one-of-a-kind beer festival, and some great Brewing the American Dream events. So, grab yourself a pint of Winter Lager and enjoy this month’s edition of What’s on Tap!

For the Love of Beer Festival

What are you up to this Saturday? Hitting the gym? Doing chores around the house? How about spending the day in Boston with friends drinking delicious Craft beer – sound good? We thought so, too. That’s why we’re bringing you our “For the Love of Beer Fest”! It’s a day to spend with old (and new) friends and try over 50 different Samuel Adams from past favorites like Black Lager to new creations like Rebel Grapefruit IPA to rare brews like The Sphinx and Kosmic Mother Funk Grand Cru. You’ll also be able to devour some beer–paired–snacks while impressing your friends with all of the new craft beer knowledge you’ll pick up at the Fest. So grab your boyfriend/girlfriend/mom/bestie/sister–in–law’s–second–cousin (hey, who doesn’t love a cold Sam Adams?) and check this Fest out. Tickets available here.

Beyond the huge beer selection, here’s what else you can look forward to:

• Live Music from Comanchero
– Boston’s Americana Jam Band

• Food & Beer Pairings from local chefs
(food for purchase)

• Inflatable Hop Slide, Interactive Games,
Giveaways & More

When: Saturday, November 7th, 12-3 p.m. & 4-7 p.m.

Where: Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway,
Atlantic & Milk St, Boston, MA

Grapefruit IPA

We’re excited to announce the arrival of the newest member of the Rebel IPA family, Samuel Adams Rebel Grapefruit IPA, a West Coast-style IPA brewed with real grapefruit juice and peel for an added punch of citrusy goodness. We packed four different hop varieties – Mosaic, Citra, Centennial, and Cascade – into this brew to achieve a perfect balance between the juicy, citrusy hop character and the slightly sharp, refreshing grapefruit notes. Bright, bold, and thirst-quenching, you’re going to want to get your hands on this as soon as possible. Find out more here!

2015 Utopias

The world-renowned Samuel Adams Utopias is back for another limited release. This year’s edition is a blend of batches, some of which have been aged for up to 22 years in various barrels at our Boston Brewery. In addition to single-use bourbon casks from the award-winning Buffalo Trace Distillery, the 2015 Utopias blend also spent time in Madeira, Carcavelos, Cognac, and Armagnac barrels. This allowed it to develop elegant dark fruit aromas and complex layers of nutty oak, toffee, honey, and fig. Finally, aging in hand-selected finishing barrels contributed woody, molasses, and tobacco notes. Clocking in at 28% ABV, this batch has a slight sweetness and deep, rich, malty smoothness reminiscent of a vintage Port, fine Cognac, or aged Sherry. One of our rarest and most sought-after releases, Utopias is unlike any other
beverage in the world.

Meet Serge Libioulle of Belgium Delights, one of the newest Brewing the American Dream Small Business Owners!

Growing up in Belgium, Serge always dreamed of owning his own business. After relocating to the United States, Serge worked in IT for more than 15 years but after being laid off, found himself thinking about his dream again. His passion for cooking and the lack of authentic Belgian food in the U.S. motivated him to start his own business, Belgium Delights. Belgium Delights features authentic Belgian specialties such as mouth-watering frites, waffles, and Brioche, and a secret family recipe for a garlic aioli sauce. After being turned away by banks for a small business loan, he turned to the Samuel Adams Brewing the American Dream program.

Armed with the capital and resources he needed, Serge was able to purchase equipment for his farmers market booth, including two commercial fryers and two imported commercial waffle irons. Belgium Delights has been in business for only three years and is already a thriving family enterprise and a local success within the busiest farmers markets in San Diego. After endless requests from customers, Serge is expanding to the wholesale market to sell his special garlic aioli and his new sriracha aioli to local, high-end grocery stores, and hopes to expand nationwide in the next five years. His special event business is also building with increased demand for his booth at weddings, parties, local beer events, and festivals around town. If you’re in the San Diego area, stop by one of the farmers markets and try Serge’s menu; just one bite will transport you to Belgium! For more information on Serge and Belgium Delights, visit

German brewers may have been on to something centuries ago when they created bold, rich bock beers for the winter. Originating in Einbeck, Germany as a means of providing sustenance during Lent, this style’s roasted malts create a warming, hearty character that’s the perfect remedy for winter’s harsh bite. Our beer is a dark wheat bock subtly spiced with a blend of fresh ground Indonesian & Vietnamese cinnamon along with ginger and orange peel for a deep, smooth flavor and malty finish that will warm you on a cold winter’s night.

Check out our Find a Sam page to find a Winter Lager near you.

Winter Lager is officially hitting shelves this month, and what better way to enjoy this classic brew than with the Samuel Adams Winter Lager glass? This 16oz tulip-shaped pint glass comes in a set of two, so it’s perfect for enjoying with a friend or relative this holiday season.

Samuel Adams Winter Lager Yam and Red Skinned Potatoes Au Gratin

‘Tis the season to eat, drink, and be thankful for good friends and great beer. Get in the holiday spirit by hosting a Friendsgiving dinner complete with your favorite Samuel Adams brews. We’ll be throwing Friendsgiving celebrations nationwide, but if you’re organizing your own and searching for recipe inspiration, look no further than this tasty beer-infused side dish.

Serves 4
Preheat oven to 375 F
Toss sliced yam, potatoes, and onion in a large bowl with salt and lemon juice, mixing thoroughly. Transfer mixture to a colander and allow it to drain in the sink for 20 minutes.
In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Add flour, whisk, and cook for 2 minutes. Pour beer in slowly, stirring constantly, and cook until thickened (approx. 3 minutes).
Remove from heat.
Pour the sliced potato, yam, and onion mixture back into the bowl and add in all other ingredients, reserving 1 cup of cheese to top the gratin. Mix to combine and pour the mixture into a 9”x13” ovensafe dish greased with bacon drippings. Pat the mixture into the pan to an even thickness.
Bake for 25 minutes, top with remaining cheese, and return to oven. Continue to bake until top is bubbling and browned, approximately 25 additional minutes (50 minutes total).

  • Ingredients:
  • 12oz bottle of
    Samuel Adams Winter Lager
  • 1 large yam, peeled, cut in half lengthwise, sliced across thinly (1/8-inch)
  • 2 1/2 lbs. red potatoes, washed, cut in half, sliced across thinly (1/8-inch)
  • 1 yellow onion, sliced thinly then roughly chopped
  • 4 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1/2 cup parsley, roughly chopped
  • 4 strips bacon, cooked until crisp, crumbled, with residual fat reserved to grease the baking dish
  • 8oz shredded semi-hard cheese, like cheddar
    (we suggest Beecher’s Flagship)
  • 6oz (1 1/2 cups) cow’s milk cheese, like Swiss (we suggest Beecher’s Dutch Hollow Dulcet)

Saint Arnold News Letter

Saint Arnold Army Newsletter

Dear Saint Arnold’s Army:



Fresh Hop Ale 2015 is Now Available

When hops are harvested, there is a 48 hour period when they can be used fresh in the brewing process. These fresh hops create a slightly softer bitter than dried hops do, and for the past few years, we’ve been brewing a single batch beer with freshly harvested hops.

For the 2015 version of Fresh Hop Ale, we revisited the single hop Session IPA recipe we enjoyed so much last year. This year, we used a relatively new hop varietal, Equinox, every step of the way.

420 lbs. of fresh Equinox hops were added within 36 hours of being harvested – and within an hour and a half of arriving at the brewery. These hops give the beer a prominent citrus aroma with hints of tropical fruits and subtle herbal notes. The medium-light body of this beer, combined with an aggressive but balanced bitterness, make it a truly enjoyable and drinkable IPA.

Fresh Hop Ale is a draft only release. You can find it now at bars and restaurants around town (and here at the brewery) while it lasts. We recommend enjoying this beer quickly to fully appreciate the hop flavors.

Learn more about Fresh Hop Ale 2015.

Current Seasonal:

Current Icon:
American Roggenbier


Our Newest Icon Red is American Roggenbier
The next release in our Icon series is an American Roggenbier, our take on a traditional German Roggenbier, which literally translates to “rye beer.” The style was once commonly brewed and popular in Bavaria. Our version has a couple of slight twists.

First, it is hopped like an American Pale Ale with piney, citrusy Cascade and Chinook hops. It also features less rye that its German counterpart – roughly 15% as opposed to the traditional 50% or more. It’s enough rye to make it noticeably spicy without being overbearing. Notes of banana esters and clove phenols from the German weizen yeast complement the spicy character of the rye malt. Icon Red is an unfiltered beer, which is traditional to the style.

You can enjoy Icon Red now on tap, and bottles will be available in stores beginning in early November. Learn more about Icon Red – American Roggenbier.

Houston Football Fans: Join Us in Miami This Weekend

When we launched our beer in South Florida earlier this year, we began thinking of excuses to travel to Miami. Luckily, this year’s football schedule provides us with the perfect one. If you’re hitting the road this weekend to follow the hometown team, join us for a beer!
We’re teaming up with the good folks of the Traveling Texans, a fan group that travels around the country to support the team. They say Miami is one of their most popular locations – go figure. Here’s what we’ve got planned for the weekend.

On Saturday, we’ll meet the Traveling Texans at the Marriot Stanton South Beach where we’ll join them for their Group Photo at 5:00 PM. Of course, we’ll be bringing some beer to the beach.

From there, we’ll spread the love to Fort Lauderdale for a Tap Takeover at The Brass Tap from 7:00 – 9:00 PM (this is different from the official Traveling Texans Group Meetup). They’ll have Fancy Lawnmower, Weedwacker, Santo, Ale Wagger, Elissa IPA, Endeavour, Pumpkinator and Bourbon Barrel Pumpkinator on tap, as well as limited bottles of BB1-BB6, BB8, BB10 and DR15.

On Sunday, we’ll of course be tailgating before the game. You’ll find us in the South East Orange Lot (Entrances 15 and 16) with the other Houston fans. We’ll be bringing plenty of beer with us including cans of Fancy Lawnmower, Santo and Oktoberfest. Enjoying a Houston beer on the road is definitely good karma.

To learn more about the Traveling Texans and their itinerary, check out their website.

A Word from our Executive Chef:
Halloween Food and Beer Pairings

Our Executive Chef Ryan Savoie has Halloween on his mind, and this year, he’s asking the tough questions. Like, what even is Halloween food? Who is the true face of Halloween? Is it Jamie Lee Curtis? Or William Shatner? Vincent Price, maybe? Where do Swedish Meatballs fit in to all this? Perhaps most importantly, what beers should we be enjoying during this madness?

Get all the answers straight from the pen of Chef Ryan.

The Shining at Market Square Park
Wednesday, October 28 at 7:30 PM

The tide of terror that swept America is sweeping Market Square Park on the evening of Wednesday, October 28. Alamo Drafthouse’s Rolling Roadshow is setting up shop, and the screening is free and open to the parking (as is street parking after 6:00 PM). For a scary movie beer pairing, Niko Niko’s will be tapping a keg of Pumpkinator in addition to their usual Saint Arnold offerings.

All work and no beer makes Jack a dull boy.

Halfway to Santo De Mayo Social Run 
at Flying Saucer, Downtown
Sunday, November 1 at 9:00 AM
Our Santo De Mayo 5K will be returning in May, so now’s the time to start preparing. Of course, the way to prepare for our 5K is by running through Downtown and enjoying beers and breakfast tacos.

We’ll start at the Saucer, run to the brewery and finish back at the Saucer. Pre registration is not required. You can come out and run for free, or you can pay $15 and get three Saint Arnold beers, a pint glass and two breakfast tacos. That’s a heck of a deal.

You can also register for the Santo De Mayo 5K on site. $40 will get you the above, plus registration for the run on Sunday, May 1.

Learn more and see the course map on Facebook.

Friday the 13th at Scream World
Friday, November 13 at 7:30 PM

We’re celebrating Friday the 13th at the scariest place on Earth – or at least in the Houston area – with a showing of the original 1980 classic Friday the 13th. Is there any other way?

We’ll have cans out there available for purchase, and the haunts will also be open that night for a separate ticket purchase.
