It Snowed, now for Beer.

9 Nov

Today the capital region of New York got a taste of the season to come: snow, sleet, no sunlight after 4:30 pm and no one knowing how to drive.  To officially welcome Winter each week-day this week the beer of the day will be from the Samuel Adams Winter variety pack which I saw graced the shelves of my local grocery store as of late.  Today’s beer of the day (Sam Adams Winter Lager) was a coincidence, but look forward to each beer in the variety pack up through Friday.

The pack this year includes:  Boston Lager, Chocolate Bock, Holiday Porter, Winter Lager, White Ale and Old Fezziwig Ale. (In case the math didn’t work out for you: I will not be featuring Boston Lager because it has already been the Beer of the Day.)

The best way to experience this would be to purchase a variety pack of your own to enjoy and drink along throughout the week (just a thought.)

    Thank God, I’ve been waiting for a solid winter sampler since… well… last winter.

    What are the differences of this pack as to the one from last year? Any changes?

      no Cranberry Lambic, no Cream Ale. I will miss the Cream Ale, not so much for the lambic. Added chocolate bock, and a holiday porter. (I think that is right.)

    I like how your sarcasm even comes through on your blog, especially in your Sam Adams winter collection post. I quote, “Today the capital region of New York got a taste of the season to come: snow, sleet, no sunlight after 4:30 pm and no one knowing how to drive.”

    Fantastic.
