Samuel Adams releases Winter Variety Pack
Craft beer brand brings back classic brews for holiday pack
The brewers at Samuel Adams are exclusively bringing back some classics to the craft beer brand’s Winter Variety Pack including Holiday Porter, Chocolate Bock and Old Fezziwig. Holiday Porter is flavorful beer with a rich malt complexity and robust finish. Deep roasted malts complement the generous portions of traditional English ale hops and Bavarian Noble hops to create an exceptionally hearty and delicious brew perfect for cool winter nights, the company says. Like the character that inspired it, Old Fezziwig is a warm, festive beer. Bursting with spices of the season like ginger and cinnamon, its full body accompanies a deep malt character, with flavors of sweet toffee and rich, dark caramel, according to the company. Chocolate Bock is a rich, decadent bock with a big, malty character that boasts added sweetness of chocolate thanks to an extended aging on a bed of cocoa nibs from Madagascar, Ghana and Ecuador. This unique process imparts a smooth, complex flavor and a velvety finish, it says. The Samuel Adams Winter Classics Variety Pack is available nationwide through December 12-packs (bottles) for a suggested retail price (SRP) of $17.99 and 24-packs (bottles) for a SRP of $29.99. Price for each package varies by market.
