While you’re reading this, Boston (and the northeast) is getting dumped on. That’s what makes the brewery’s new seasonal Cold Snap so ironic. It’s their spring seasonal.
Cold Snap is Belgian-style witbier that is replacing the previous seasonal, Alpine Spring. If you think about it, having a spring seasonal (that is done in March) called Cold Snap is pretty perfect. The name doesn’t make it seem completely ridiculous to drink in 2 feet of snow, or when it’s just warm enough to think winter is over. Marketing at its best.
This white ale is brewed with German noble hops (Tettnanger) and copious amounts of wheat. Sam Adams Cold Snap joins the 12oz can lineup, alongside 12oz bottles and draft.
Availability: 12oz Bottles, 12 oz Cans, Draft. Jan-March
