Samuel Adams Rebel Juiced IPA debuts

Samuel Adams Rebel Juiced

Samuel Adams Rebel Juiced debuts today, Halloween 2016.

Bold tropical hops are the focus of this latest addition to the Boston brewery’s lineup. If Mosaic, Mandarina, and Zeus hops don’t do the trick, the brewery adds a touch of mango puree for an extra burst of juice.

At 55 IBUs, the hop varieties below were selected for the tropical aromas and juicy flavors they impart rather than for their bitterness. Zeus hops were used in the kettle and the Mosaic & Mandarina hops were used to dry hop.

Samuel Adams Rebel Juiced debuts on October 31st on draft nationally starting today. 12 ounce bottles will follow in January, 2017.

Style: IPA (w/ Mango Puree)
Hops: Mosaic, Mandarina, Zeus
Malts: In-house 2-Row Pale Blend

Sam Adams Ginger Beer, a spicy alcoholic potential

Sam Adams Ginger Beer looks to be in the Boston brewery’s future.

What was once a traditionally non-alcoholic brew has gained a good bit of popularity in the United States as an alcoholic beverage.

Recent industry releases in the ginger beer category include Not Your Father’s Ginger Ale, and Nashville brewed Wild Ginger.

While ginger beer may seem like a unique niche in the alcohol market, Boston Beer Company is no stranger to experimentation. In addition to their successful Boston Lager and various IPA’s, the brewery has made everything from mead to radlers as well as launched the Nitro Can Series. All on top of releasing one of the most expensive beers in the American market – Utopias.

Sam Adams Ginger Beer is slated to be a limited release. The brewery has not yet announced this offering.

Availability: 12oz Bottles, Draft.
Debut: TBA
