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!
