Ahh Sam Adams, you had to go and pay your own ultimate tribute to the greatest quarterback that the NFL has ever seen. It's ok, you're from Boston, so we get it. If it is cool with you, Sam, we'd also like to see a beer in tribute to Bobby Orr, Larry Legend and Ted Williams, though we aren't sure that the latter's "Splendid Splinter Ale" would really thrill customers.
Anyway, back to Brady beer. Other breweries have crafted tributes to TB12, but Sam's profile and status in the craft beer game makes them the largest to do so (we think). Unlike Smug Brewing's "Traitorade", where they call out Brady's departure to Tampa as the mega let down that it was, the Boston Beer Company dives headlong into extolling Touchdown Tommy for all of the things that make him him.
For instance, the beer itself spells out to the acronym of G.O.A.T., which Brady is commonly referred to as. The 7% ABV is a tribute to the championship rings that he has won. Even the cases of beer produced equates to 199, his draft pick number from the NFL's Class of 2000 Draft.
Let's be honest though, we're fairly confident, like Brady in a playoff game, that they produced more than 199 cases, that's just all that is being sold to the public. They are even releasing the beer on March 28th, which, when written differently, is an inside joke trolling the Atlanta Falcons for squandering a 28-3 lead in Super Bowl LI five years ago.
So, go get yourself some GOAT beer and enjoy it. One thing you know it won't be brewed with is Strawberries, because Brady doesn't eat them. Plus, didn't Strawberry Beer go out with Pete's Wicked Ale in the 90s or something?!

Samuel Adams Cherry Wheat follows the centuries old American tradition of brewing beer with native ingredients. The sweet fruitiness of the cherries is balanced against the crisp, cereal note from the malted wheat and the subtle citrus flavor from the Noble hops. The end result is a sweet, refreshing beer that is light on the palate but long on complexity. Introduced in 1995 as a summer seasonal brew, Samuel Adams Cherry Wheat developed a large enough following to be introduced as a year round style. Its distinct cherry character has made it one of the most unique and well liked styles of Samuel Adams beer ever. Cherries are added at two different points during the brewing process. Once during the mash and again during finishing.
The Boston-based brewery announced Wednesday that anyone who posts their vaccination sticker or badge to Instagram or Twitter using the hashtag #ShotforSam and tagging @samueladamsbeer will receive $7 through the Cash App for a beer at their favorite bar.
Located in the Over-The Rhine neighborhood, just a block away from historic Findlay Market, our Cincinnati Taproom features pints and flights of our innovative styles, rotating experimental beers, as well as fan-favorites like Samuel Adams Boston Lager, and seasonal brews like Samuel Adams Summer Ale.
The Samuel Adams beer maker, after years of declining revenue, has seen its share price more than double and break above $400 in "one of the most spectacular comebacks I've ever witnessed," the "Mad Money" host said.
In 2017, CEO Martin Roper retired and Boston Beer began investing in marketing and product development outside the slowing beer category, which included focusing on the popular Angry Orchard Cider and Twisted Tea business segments and launching the hard seltzer brand Truly. Truly is the "pillar of the turnaround" and it's paying off, Cramer said.
We still remember the sticker shock we had when we bought our first wild ale. Here was a single bottle of beer that sold for close to $30. Thirty. Dollars. And that wasn't some crazy markup by the store just to profit off the "craft beer craze."
It's been years since that day, times have changed, we've adjusted, and now we consider $30 a reasonable price? for some beers. If you're ready to experience beer sticker shock all over again with us, however, consider Utopias, an uncarbonated brew from Samuel Adams that carries with it a suggested retail price of $200. How could a single bottle of beer cost so much? Well, let us explain:
Utopias is actually a blend. Included in that blend is some 23-year-old barrel-aged Triple Bock, a beer that predates even the longest aged stout we've ever tasted. This crazy long aging brings out tons of vanilla, cinnamon, and ginger notes. And while the 23-year-old Triple Bock is the oldest component, Utopias is also blended with older Utopias vintages for true depth of flavor. This isn't exactly a fresh IPA meant to be chugged off the canning line.
In fact, it's unlike beer. Utopias clocks in at a ridiculous 28% ABV. For the sake of comparison, that makes it stronger than port and sake, and makes even Dogfish Head's 120 Minute IPA, one of the most well-known strong beers, seem like O'Doul's. It's also uncarbonated, which means it drinks more like a fine cognac than it does a frothy brew.
Oh, that stout was aged in bourbon barrels? Pssh. Here are the barrels used in the creation of Utopias: Armagnac, cognac, ruby port, sweet Madeira, Buffalo Trace Bourbon, and, new this year, White Carcavelos wine, which are extremely hard to acquire. The beer picks up unique notes from each before being blended into harmony.
There are times when a one-note beer will do, but often we want something that makes us think. Complexity is key to Utopias. The brewers at Sam Adams try to create a complex flavor profile that makes you pay attention to what you?re smelling and tasting. Flavors and aromatic notes include: wood, molasses, cocoa, toffee, vanilla, raisin, dates, maple, smoke, nuts and more.
Because of the old beer used, the expensive and rare barrels used, and the time commitment, Utopias simply can't be produced on a grand scale. That means there are a total of fewer than 10,000 bottles produced each time it's made, and this is only the ninth time it's been released.
History: The challenge was to create a new one-of-a-kind, champagne-style beer, while operating within the confines of Reinheitsgebot; the German Beer Purity Law dating back to 1516 which allows the use of only water, malt, hops & yeast. Using these four classic ingredients and the traditional brewing process to reach their end goal would require the brewers of Samuel Adamsand Weihenstephan to innovate like never before. Combining their 1,000 years of brewing expertise and creativity, the two brewers created a groundbreaking brew that's crisp and champagne-like. It's light and dry yet complex, with a sparkling effervescence.
Brewing: Our brewers rearranged the brewing process to create this ground-breaking beer, reintroducing the mash process into the brew kettle and the fermenter. The process used to brew Infinium is patent pending, and allowed our brewers to create a beer unlike any ever brewed under the Reinheitsgebot. Infinium is dry-hopped with Bavarian Noble hops for a light citrus flavor. Its then bottle-conditioned with a traditional Belgian yeast and fermented in the champagne-method to add another layer of flavor complexity, a bright clarity, and a fine carbonation to the beer.

The year was 1984 when I was crafted and brewed to honour one of America's founding fathers, Samuel Adams. I lived up to my name by leading the American beer revolution, reviving the country's passion for full-bodied brews that are robust and rich in character. My recipe has remained unchanged and till this date, I continue to be brewed using only the finest hand-selected ingredients and a time-consuming, traditional four-vessel brewing process.
I am a perfectly balanced, original American beer with a roasty caramel sweetness and a smooth, floral, piney and citrusy hoppiness. As "the beer that started it all", I'm one of the best examples of the fundamental, great Lager.
Samuel Adams is the flagship brand of the Boston Beer Company, the brewery that spearheaded the American craft beer revolution. The brewery opened in 1898 and has a brand name that honours America's Founding Father, Samuel Adams. As a thought leader and tastemaker for more than a generation, Boston Beer Co is currently America's 2nd largest craft brewery and releases plenty of great brews from its iconic and traditional beers to new and exciting seasonals. 781b155fdc
