Similar to a traditional Czech Pilsner, our Samuel Adams Pils is brewed with a blend of 5 Noble Hop Varieties from each of the world's only remaing Noble Hop growing regions. The spicy herbal and citrus hop character is well balanced by the Weyermann Bohemian Pilsner malt, adding honeyed malt character and full body without additional sweetness.
Samuel Adams Ale
Dry Hopped with Anthamum, Simcoe and East Kent Golding Hops for a powerful fruity and piney earthy aroma.
This IPA style Ale is brewed with a carefully selected blend of hops from top German, English and American growing regions. It is dry hopped with Anthamum, Simcoe, and East kent Golding Hops for a powerful fruity and earthy aroms. The intense hop character is balanced by the old German style malt lending a unique sweetness, full body and tart finish.
