Saint Arnold New Letter


Saint Arnold Army Newsletter

Dear Saint Arnold’s Army:

Our Brew Crew is back from the Great American Beer Festival, and they brought back from Denver something very special: a Gold Medal for Weedwacker. It is Weedwacker’s third medal at GABF – it won a bronze each of the past two years. We now have 21 GABF medals for our 21 years. 

Hooray, Weedwacker! 

10 Years of Divine Reserve Cellar Tasting

Monday, October 19 – 6:00 – 8:30 PM

Way back in October 2005, we bottled Divine Reserve No. 1, a Barleywine that kicked off our series of special release, single batch beers. Over the past ten years, we’ve brewed 15 Divine Reserve beers and kept a stash of each release in our basement cellar (or as we call it, Papa Bear’s Cave).
Earlier this week, our brewers cracked open a bottle of each beer to taste. Tough job, they told us. These are beers that generally benefit from being aged, and they’ve developed nicely since their initial release.
On the evening of Monday, October 19, we’ll be hosting a Cellar Tasting in our Beer Hall to celebrate and, more importantly, taste each of these Divine Reserve beers. At this event, we will be pouring the last bottles we have of a few of these beers. In other words, unless you’ve got a buddy with DR1 in the back of the fridge, this will be your final opportunity to sample some of these beers.
When you arrive, you will be given a punchcard that will allow you to sample each of the following beers. We will be able to pour you more of some beers than of others (for example, we’ve got more DR15 than we do DR1). Here’s a rundown of the series:

  • DR1 – Barleywine
  • DR2 – Abbey American Quadrupel
  • DR3 – Double IPA
  • DR4 – Wee Heavy (World Beer Cup Gold Medal Winner)
  • DR5 – Russian Imperial Stout
  • DR6 – American Barleywine
  • DR7 – Weizenbock
  • DR8 – Scotch Ale
  • DR9 – Imperial Pumpkin Stout (original Pumpkinator)
  • DR10 – English Style Barleywine
  • DR11 – Double IPA (original Endeavour)
  • DR12 – Old Ale
  • DR13 – Belgian Quadrupel
  • DR14 – Belgian Strong Golden Ale
  • DR15 – Russian Imperial Stout

Tickets are $50 and include samples of each Divine Reserve beer, two selections from our regular beer lineup, a gold rimmed Divine Reserve taster glass and a Slow Dough pretzel. If you’re still hungry, a limited food menu will be available for purchase from our kitchen.

Art Car IPA Cans Coming Monday

We hope you’ve been enjoying our newest beer, Art Car IPA on tap as much as we have over the past couple of months. It will remain available on draft, and beginning Monday, October 12, it will also be available in 12 oz cans at your favorite place to buy Saint Arnold beer. If you haven’t enjoyed it yet, here’s the lowdown (though we’d really recommend you just go ahead and taste it for yourself).
Art Car IPA is an American IPA featuring a blend of both new and old hop varieties from the Pacific Northwest.
The nose is a blend of apricot and tropical fruit and mango. The taste starts with a big bitter blood orange that morphs into mangos and sweet tropical fruits. There is a lightly sweet malt body that allows the hops to shine while there being a nice complexity to the flavors.
Art Cars Touring the Town

The Art Car IPA name was inspired by the fleet of hand painted Art Cars created by local artists for Saint Arnold. The label artwork was designed by renowned Houston graffiti artist GONZO247, who has painted four Saint Arnold Art Cars.
Speaking of our Art Cars, we’ll be bringing some of the fleet out to celebrate the can release. Here’s where you can catch them:

Saint Arnold Army Newsletter

Dear Saint Arnold’s Army:


Bishop’s Barrel No. 11 Coming Monday
Our barrel program allows us to play with a lot of different flavors. Sometimes unexpected flavors pair in a beautiful way! Such is the case with Bishop’s Barrel No. 11.
It started when someone brought us a bottle of barrel aged gin. Brewer Aaron tasted it, thought, “Hmmm, that might be an interesting accompaniment to Endeavour.” A couple of drops of it were added to a pint and the results were promising. Next came the challenge of finding gin barrels. There aren’t a lot of barrel aged gins out there. Luckily we had visited a small distillery in West Virginia, Smooth Ambler, that barrel aged a gin in used bourbon barrels. After much work, we secured 30 of these used gin barrels.

We filled the barrels in April. Given we were using a very hoppy beer, we didn’t want to let it sit in the barrel for as long as most of our barrel aged beers. When we deemed it ready to be moved out of barrels a couple weeks ago, we noted that the hops were just a little more muted than we wanted, so we tried blends with between 5% to 40% fresh Endeavour, settling on 20%.

The result is Bishop’s Barrel No. 11, BB11, or as we refer to it internally, Gindeavour. It pours a beautiful copper color with an off white head. The nose is a spicy mix of hops, wood, juniper and a hint of bourbon. There is a bitter up front that is balanced with a nice malt backbone throughout. Piney, resiny hops balance with the juniper/gin character. There is a warming alcohol note in there too. The finish is focused with the hop bitter, malt and gin character all giving a pleasant linger.

Again, with all Bishop’s Barrel releases, bottles are available only at bars and restaurants. Keep up with the hashtag #BB11 on Twitter to find it in your area. Here are a few places we know will have it:

Pub Night at Saint Arnold

Friday, September 18 – 5:0010:00 PM

Pub Night is back this Friday, and we’re tapping a never-before-tapped beer. Our brewers added toasted coconut to a cask of Oktoberfest, and we’re excited to debut this one-off release during Pub Night. We’re calling it Coconutoberfest. Or maybe not. That name sounded better in our heads.

In addition to this special beer, we’ll be tapping a keg of our Boiler Room aged in Chardonnay Barrels with Blackberries – in case you missed our recent Boiler Room Bonanza event. Also available for the evening will be bottles of Bishop’s Barrel No. 9, our Bourbon Barrel Aged version of Pumpkinator. To accompany all of this rare beer, a Pub Night food menu will be available from our kitchen.

On Pub Nights, we open our tour hall from 5:00 – 10:00 PM strictly as a bar and let you choose what you want to purchase. There’s no entry fee for the evening, so you can just choose beers by the individual glass or bottle. Pub Nights are strictly 21 and up.

Smuttynose News Letter

What’s new this week?

Another double beer release is upon us! This Saturday at Towle Farm, we’re unleashing Frankenlager, our newest Big Beer, and Thelema, a new beer from Smuttlabs.

Without the the latest brewing technology and process control, there would be no Frankenlager! Our brewers conceived this golden, malty  specifically to inaugurate the brewhouse in our Towle Farm brewery. A special decoction mashing process creates a lush malt complexity that’s given form with a piquant hop character and a crispness that can only come form lager yeast. Frankenlager is $6 for a beautiful 22-ounce bottle.

Smuttlabs Thelema is a classic Belgian-style golden ale. Gorgeously golden-hued, the nose is pure fruit – think ripe pear. Our Belgian yeast strain, that we love so dearly, along with 100% Sorachi Ace hops provide a beautiful, fruity sweetness along with a lingering spicy, herbal hop character. This beer weighs in at 8.5% but is devilishly drinkable. Each 500ml bottle is $8. Don’t suppress your baser needs; supplies are limited.

The Latest Smerch is ready to follow you home!

Just in time for fall, we’ve got new Smuttynose and Smuttlabs Woolrich flannel shirts in both men’s and women’s cuts. They’re top-of-the-line ‘Shire-style!

Our disc golf course is nearing completion and on track for an October opening. You’ll need the proper equipment to navigate the course, which is why we’ve made these Smuttynose Discraft golf discs.

Protect your beer from the raging warmth of bonfires with our double-barreled squealer koozie. It’s even got a convenient carrying strap for all your autumn adventures.

Smuttynose Oktoberfest Tickets Are On Sale Now!

Join us Saturday, October 10 from 2-7pm at the brewery as we party down on the field for Oktober! 

Smuttlabs Saving Water

Smuttlabs is making more bottles, but now their using less water!

The assembly you’re looking at saves between 1950-2050 gallons of water for each Smuttlabs bottling run. How does it work? It’s pretty simple:

Spray heads rinse the inside of each empty bottle with fresh,   de-aerated water before they get purged with CO2 and filled with beer. The filling process leaves beer on the outside of each bottle that must be rinsed off before the bottle gets labelled.

The keg on the left catches the water from the first rinse and then pumps it over to rinse the filled and capped bottles. It’s a pretty simple innovation that makes a big difference in our water usage. We are researching a similar system for the bottling line at Towle Farm.

Sam Adams News Letter

Hey Badassbeer!

It’s a hectic but exciting time of year for us here at the brewery with the fall beer season in full swing. While we’re busy brewing OctoberFest, Pumpkin Batch, and all our other delicious autumn beers, we’re also raising steins, snacking on beer-infused jerky, and tailgating with our favorite brews – from a pumpkin keg. But more on that below. Wherever your fall adventures take you, make sure to bring your Sam Adams of choice along for the ride.

Calling All Competitive Stein Hoisters!

Think you can hoist a full liter stein longer than anyone else? Our Stein Hoisting competition returns for another season as we search high and low for two champions to send to the Oktoberfest celebration in Munich. But in order to get to Germany, competitors must first go stein-to-stein on one of the country’s most grueling stages – Jimmy Kimmel Live! To qualify, check out our events page for Stein Hoisting events near you, and let the race to Oktoberfest begin.


For the second time ever, we’re taking KMF Grand Cru on tour – and this year we’re expanding KMF’s cross-country journey to 20 cities nationwide. This unique Belgian-style ale is fermented for over a year with micro-organisms that live in our Barrel Room, giving it a complex, funky flavor. KMF is used in varying degrees in our Barrel Room Collection beers, but you can also find where it will be on tour this fall by visiting our website. Don’t see your city on the lineup? Vote to be the 20th city on the tour using the website link. Attending a KMF Grand Cru event? Be sure to use the hashtag #KMFTour to let us know what you think. And for those of you in the Boston area, KMF Grand Cru will be sold in cork-caged bottles for a limited time at our Sam Adams Boston Brewery. This may be the only time we bottle it, so head to the brewery to get your hands on this one-of-a-kind beer!

Join Jim Koch for a Special Beer Dinner at Post 390

Join Samuel Adams Founder and Brewer Jim Koch at Post 390 restaurant for
a special beer dinner to benefit Brewing the American Dream. This will be a unique opportunity to meet the American craft beer icon firsthand and experience a multicourse dinner by Post 390’s Executive Chef Eric Brennan and his team, paired with a variety of Sam Adams beers.

The Saison (French for “season”) style originated in the Wallonia region of Belgium as a low-alcohol, pale beer that was brewed seasonally to refresh farmworkers during the harvest. Taking inspiration from autumn in New England, where pumpkin ales are fall favorites, we brew our Pumpkin Batch Saison with real pumpkin and classic fall spices. Its unique character comes from our Belgian yeast, which adds complex flavors ranging from herbal and floral to spicy clove and estery. It’s a new take on an autumn classic.

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

We’ve all seen kegs before, but nothing like the Great Pumpkin Keg Kit. The kit includes two Boston Lager 16 oz. glasses, a metal bucket, metal bottle opener, and plastic spigot. All you have to do is carve a pumpkin, attach the spigot, pour in your favorite Sam Adams fall beer (we suggest Harvest Pumpkin Ale or Pumpkin Batch), and enjoy!

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.

Samuel Adams Boston Lager Fresh Giardiniera Jerky

Kick off football season with a Sam Can and a tailgating food sure to please the whole crowd – beer-infused jerky! Our friends at Duke’s Small Batch Smoked Meats helped us create this delicious recipe anyone can create in their own home.


Marinade Instructions:
1. Reduce 24 oz. (2 bottles) of Sam Adams to 12 oz., over medium heat.
2. Mix Sam Adams Boston Lager, Apple Cider Vinegar, Cane Sugar, Sea Salt, Mustard Powder, Fresh Garlic, Dijon Mustard, and Hot Giardiniera Relish into a saucepan, stir and mix thoroughly. Chill before using.
3. Tumble marinade (if available), add sliced meat to large mixing bowl. Pour marinade over meat, cover and allow it to marinate 12-24hrs. Let sit for 24hrs for best results.

Rub and Cook/Dehydration Instructions:
1. Remove thinly sliced eye-of-rounds from marinade and pat dry on both sides.
2. Mix well Sea Salt, Fresh Garlic, Hot Giardiniera Relish, and Cracked Black Pepper, ensuring thorough distribution.
3. In a large mixing bowl or tumbler, add sliced meat and rub mixture. Coat evenly.
4. If using a dehydrator, lay slices in a single layer along screens and dry at least 4 hrs at your dehydrator’s highest setting — at least 165°F.
5. If using an oven, let the meat come to remove temperature before using.
6. Set oven to 175°F. It’s extremely important to ensure your oven maintains 175°F.
7. Line baking sheets with foil, on top add wire/stainless cooling rack on top of the foil.
8. Arrange the jerky strips along the cooling rack covering as much space as possible. The cooling racks allow for airflow under the jerky strips during drying.
9. Depending on the thickness of the slices, this can take between 2-4hrs.
10. A properly maintained 175°F oven will dry a slim strip in 3.5 hrs.
11. A bottle sprayer with water and can be used to create a little steam inside the oven to ensure the jerky stays tender and doesn’t over dry. This can be done about every 30 mins.
12. Jerky is ready when it’s darker in color, not dry enough to snap when bent.
13. Jerky can be eaten once finished, warm or cooled down.
14. Can be stored in cool dry place for 2-3 months packaged.

  • Ingredients:
  • 3 lbs Beef Eye-of-Rounds (thinly sliced)
  • 10 oz Samuel Adams Boston Lager (50% reduced)
  • 1 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp Sea Salt
  • 1/2 Tsp Mustard Powder
  • 1 Tbsp Fresh Garlic (minced)
  • 1 Tbsp Dijon Mustard
  • 2.5 oz. Hot Giardiniera Relish

Throwback News Letter

Throwback Brewery – Spicy Bohemian is back, Chef’s Whim, Restaurant update, and more!

Updates from our Head Brewer

The biggest news from the brewhouse is that over the past several months we have transitioned from our small, 3-BBL brewhouse that I cobbled together myself, to our brand new 15-BBL brewhouse. There are plenty of benefits to the new system, including better hop utilization and a closed boil that better captures the flavor in the beer. Just wait til you try the wit coming out in a few weeks- the orange peel really pops!

In terms of what we have on tap now, first, let me start off with Spicy Bohemian. Yes, it is back! The peppers were added to our Love Me Long Time Pilsener base. This batch of Pils came out super crisp and refreshing, making the Spicy just as refreshing and drinkable – but with a kick!

Another fan favorite- Donkey-Hote Double IPA – was kegged up yesterday and now available on tap. We are also super thrilled with this batch – it is juicy, citrusy, and, yet, extremely well balanced.

Besides Donkey and Spicy, we have Hog Happy Hefeweizen, Dippity Do brown ale, Hank’s Pale Ale, and Hopstruck Red IPA on tap. Maple-Kissed Wheat Porter will be ready tomorrow. And, in the fermenters we have a Wit that we will split and add local peaches to one half and then beets to the other half (to make Just Beet Wit).

Coming up over the next several months, you will see bottles of Figgin’ Forty – our chocolate fig baltic porter, barrel-aged Gourdgeous Pumpkin Ale, and, by year end, cans of Spicy and more!


Rocking and Rolling at Hobbs Farm

Hello, everyone! We just noticed that we haven’t sent out an email update since May. Oops. :) As most of you know, we have been super busy launching the restaurant at Hobbs Farm and getting our new 15 BBL system up and running. It has been a ton of work, but also so much fun and deeply rewarding at the same time. We would like to sincerely thank all of you that have supported us in our move and have given us many warm reviews about the food and ambiance at our new location. We put a lot of time and love into this place, and it means so much to us to see so many of you enjoying this space with your friends and families.

If you haven’t been to the restaurant yet, we would love for you to visit! You can find our latest, seasonal food menu here. We also do several unique and tasty specials a week. Sunday’s are Chef’s Whim, which you can read about below. For a bit more on our food and space, you can check out the great writeup that came out yesterday in the local paper.

At our new space, we are also open longer hours now – Wednesday and Thursday nights 4-9pm, Fridays and Saturdays 11am to 9pm, and Sundays 12-7pm. You can fill you growlers during any of those times, or stop by and have a pint. As we bring on more staff (like dish washers), we will expand our hours even more. Speaking of, if you know of anyone interested in washing dishes, please email to let us know!

Hope to see you soon!

–Annette & Nicole

Chef’s Whim – Let’s Get Spicy!

We feel pretty lucky to have landed such a talented chef as Carrie Dahlgren. We feel even more lucky that on Sundays she exercises her creativity and artistry with something we call Chef’s Whim. On Sundays (12-7), Chef Carrie adds several new and inventive items to our menu, all under a unique theme. So far we have had themes such as ‘Breakfast for Dinner’ (with House made Breakfast Sausage Egg Sandwich,

Eggs Benedict- Hobbs Farm Style – with freshly made english muffins, and Spent Grain French Toast with native Blueberry Maple Syrup.) One of our recent favorites was ‘Fun on the Bayou’ with golden fried beignets, house made smoked andouille sausage in a soul warming gumbo, and comforting, cheesy shrimp & grits.

Since we just released the latest batch of Spicy Bohemian, the theme this Sunday, Sept 13th will be ‘Let’s Get Spicy’. So far, we know we are doing the following (there may be more! :):

Jalapeno braised pork empanadas with smoked corn salsa
House smoked brisket, sweet corn cheesy grits, jalapeno jam, sliced tomatoes.

Trust us when we say that these inventive dishes are worth a Sunday trip!

Upcoming Events and other fun happenings

The impending Fall means a few things, including lots of beer fests, and, fresh hops! The small amount of hops we harvested from our burgeoning hop yard will be used this year in casks that will be served in both our pub and at the Coat of Arms in Portsmouth, NH. Stay tuned for an email or to Facebook / Twitter for more details on that.

In terms of events, we will be at the sold out Passport event at Strawbery Banke on September 19th. We will pair our Peach Wit with a house-made smoked chicken boudin (sausage). On September 20th, we will be at the Heirloom Harvest Barn dinner with both beer and an appetizer. The 20th at 1pm is also our next book club meeting, where we will be reading Fun Home by Alison Bechdel.

Finally, in September, we are beginning to book up for private events. So far we have booked everything from small family celebrations to larger birthday parties, baby showers, corporate events, weddings and more! If you are interested in a private event at Throwback Brewery, please call (603 379 2317) or email us.

Westfield spirit shop Beer Tasting

It’s been a long time since a regular post and we’re not going to make up for lost time here, I’ve just been enjoying looking and finding the brews that it’s taken up a lot of my time, but this one I had a write about. Westfield spirit shop held their annual beer tasting on this Sunday the 13th with countless Breweries showing up to pour their fare. With Baxter Brewing, Wachusett Brewing, Brewmaster Jack, Lefty’s, Opa Opa, and Scantic River Brewery and then what I call nonreps pouring Glass Bottom, Ballast Point, BBC and others. But the ones that caught our attention were Lefty’s Li’l Sticky IPA and Wachusett with their Larry Triple Double along with for the badassbeerwife Two Roads Conntucky Lightnin. I will write about Larry here, it’s a Belgian IPA with enormous aromas and flavors, and at 8.5% and 85 IBU this one is delicious, but the small draw back was it came in a mix 12 pack, but that was no problem with me. And as you will see from the pictures like usual beer drinkers will converse and have a great time with one another. Oh I almost forgot about the free hotdogs and hamburgers. Will catch up with more writing soon hopefully?

Dogfish News Letter


Punkin is here!


Everyone’s fall favorite is back

Those summer days are coming to an end and it’s time for pumpkin everything. For us, that means the return of our favorite pumpkin beer … Punkin Ale!
Punkin Ale hit taps and shelves at our Milton brewery, our Rehoboth brewpub and in markets where Dogfish is sold on Sept. 1! Wahooo! 

The fun doesn’t stop there though. We have Punkin T-shirts for men and women, and some Punkin soap that smells better than pumpkin pie!

You’ll find Punkin Ale sporting a whole new look this year thanks to 2015 seasonal artist Rich Kelly. To make sure you get the fresh stuff, grab the bottles with the tatted lady.
Find me some Punkin!

Are you ready for
the Mega-Release?!

Prepare your palate. November is gonna be a big month for beer.
Pennsylvania Tuxedo
For starters, we’ll be releasing our Woolrich collaboration Pennsylvania Tuxedo in 12 oz. 4-packs for the first time! This spruce-infused pale ale pays homage to the flannel-suited hunters and gatherers who dwell deep in the Pennsylvania backcountry.
Higher Math
Our 20th anniversary beer Higher Math also is coming out. It’s a golden ale brewed with sour cherry juice and chocolate, in 12-oz 4-packs. The inspiration? Founder Sam Calagione’s very first homebrew more than 2 decades ago. After his friends told him how good it was, Sam went to the library the next day and started researching what it would take to open a brewery!

75 Minute IPA
A naturally carbonated blend of 60 and 90 Minute IPAs, 75 Minute IPA will be back with its soft and velvety mouthfeel.

One of our most requested beers, Fort is coming back, too … this time in 12-oz. 4-packs! Brewed with a ridiculous amount of raspberry juice, Fort is a Belgian-style beer with a fermentation process on par with 120 Minute IPA, World Wide Stout and Raison D’Extra. In other words, this beer isn’t for the faint of heart … or palate.

Piercing Pils
And finally, the tail end of November will bring the return of our winter seasonal Piercing Pils, a Czech-style pilsner brewed with white pear tea and pear juice.

Meanwhile … enjoy your Punkin Ale and prepare your palate for November’s Mega-Release!

Fall is the best time
to visit coastal Delaware

It’s tempting to grab a book, cozy up next to the fire at the Dogfish Inn and call it a day, but you’d miss all that coastal Delaware has to offer.
To help get you out and about, we’ve put together a treasure map for each guest highlighting local landmarks. With the kayak launch, the nearby Junction & Breakwater Trail and Cape Henlopen State Park, the inn acts as a diving board to go deep into the beauty of coastal Delaware by bike, by hike, by paddleboard, by boat, by golly.
The air is cooling, the water is still warm, and the summer crowds are gone. What are you waiting for?
