January 10, 2015 Show
This week we are joined by the wonderful Mr. Jim Koch from the incredible Boston Beer Company (Sam Adams) to discuss some of their best beers available today. Jim is a wealth of knowledge whom has seen firsthand the craft beer industry grow to where it is today. We all owe Jim a debt of gratitude for helping to pave the way for many of the wonderful craft beers that we enjoy today.
This weeks beer lineup from Sam Adams:
Double Bock: A rich malty beefed up Bock beer with notes of toffee and caramel and a 9.5% ABV that is completely hidden. A must try beer!
Thirteenth Hour: A Belgian stout with strong notes of cocoa, vanilla, and Belgian yeast. While drinking more like a Belgian Dark Strong, it is still a wonderful beer to enjoy!
Tetravis: This Belgian Quad recently won gold at the GABF and after one sip it is easy to see why! A rich Quad that drinks perfect fresh and doesnt require any aging.
American Kriek: A wonderful cherry infused beer that has hints of sour, but is not as overwhelming as some sours can become and instead is a perfect beer to introduce drinkers to the sour beer style.
Utopias: A beer with a huge reputation and a huge ABV. that ranges from 22% - 28% an extremely complex beer that drinks like a fine cognac. It may be a bit pricey for casual beer drinkers but it is worth every penny!
