Samuel Adams Brewlywed Ale

Calling all Boston brides!

The folks at Sam Adams have come up with another great idea…yet again! This Thursday, July 26th all brides and grooms-to-be are invited to the Samuel Adams Boston Brewery to celebrate their love of beer (and each other of course).

We all know how important of a role beer plays at a wedding reception, right? I mean, since the medieval times beer has played an essential role in the celebration of marriage, so it only makes sense for Samuel Adams to put their own twist on things with the limited release of their delicious Brewlywed Ale. :)

Just 500 cases of this Belgian-style pale golden ale will be available for purchase this Thursday, July 26th — not only is this perfect for all those engaged couples out there, it is also a perfect present to friends who are celebrating an engagement or who are getting married soon. Handy tip — show up in “wedding wear” (veil or cummerbund anyone?) on Thursday and move to the front of the line!

Other fun things going on — whoever travels the furthest will receive a bottle signed by Jim Koch (not to mention a private tasting with a Samuel Adams brewer), they will also have pairing suggestions for popular wedding menu items, expert advice from, a toast from Jim Koch, the chance to have Samuel Adams foot the bill for your rehearsal dinner, or if you’re really daring…the chance to get married on the spot at the brewery by a justice of the peace!

Here is the lineup of events:

7:00 a.m.: Line up early!

9:00 a.m.: Doors open, and Brewlywed Ale is officially for sale.

9:00 a.m. — 1:00 p.m.: Wedding menu beer pairing suggestions, wedding advice from, rehearsal dinner raffle, wedding photo booth, and more.

1:00 p.m.: Last call!

So cute!

So cute!

Cheers to beer!

Sam Adams Latitude 48 Deconstructed 12 Pack

When I see a package on my steps from Sam Adams, I literally get giddy. Who doesn’t like a box of beer waiting for them?! Well, I guess people who don’t like beer wouldn’t be too impressed, but come on…what kind of life are you living if you don’t like beer? Think about it.

Last summer Latitude 48 was introduced; a blend of five different hops from regions all falling within the 48th latitude line (prime hop spot ;)) providing a unique variation on the popular IPA style. This year, brewers have dismantled the Latitude 48, taking it apart (hop by hop) so that each of the five hop varieties could have a chance to shine on their own (for a limited time of course!).

The Samuel Adams Latitude 48 Deconstructed is an all-new limited release variety twelve pack, which includes the original Latitude 48, plus five new IPA variations – each of these variations are brewed with only one of the hop varieties.

Single-hop IPA’s included:

  • Latitude 48 Hallertau Mittelfrueh IPA (Hallertau, Germany): Soft bitterness, citrus, pine notes balanced by a slight sweetness and a full body (how I like my ladies….just kidding teehee)
  • Latitude 48 East Kent Goldings IPA (East Kent, UK): Earthy, floral and apricot notes offset by a slight sweetness
  • Latitude 48 Ahtanum™ IPA (Yakima Valley, WA): Very well-balanced orange, piney, floral flavor
  • Latitude 48 Simcoe® IPA (Yakima Valley, WA): Dramatic grapefruit peel and pine resin notes, with a slight sweetness and full malt body
  • Latitude 48 Zeus IPA (Yakima Valley, WA): Bitterness and an intense, pungent resinous pine flavor

*Disclaimer: Let’s not pretend the lovely folks at Sam Adams didn’t help with those fab descriptions. Thanks KP!

This fabulous twelve pack is only available now (mid-May) through mid-July for $13.99. So, hurry!
