Samuel Adams® – Alpine Springs

If you’re in Boston then you know… if you’re not… then go figure it out.  For those of us fortunate enough to be over 21 (which means you were born on this date or earlier in 1991 – does that not sound weird?), this seasonal bright and citrusy beer will keep you more than satisfied during your next visit to a restaurant or bar for the big game.  The Samuel Adams® Alpine Springs is brewed especially for the season and offers a medium-bodied, slightly sweet and warming taste that makes other beers taste like garbage.  It’s brewed in the US, like all Sam Adams beers, yet uses some international ingredients to achieve the one-of-a-kind taste.  Hey, as long as they keep brewing it here we’re good..
