Sam Adams: Beer Lover's Choice

It's time for the 2008 Beer Lover's Choice. In 2007, Sam Adam's fans voted for the Sam Adams Irish Red. This year, you can choose between the Blackberry Witbier and the Coffee Stout.

Here's a brief description of the two brews from the Sam Adams website:

Blackberry Witbier: "We brewed a traditional witbier with orange peel and coriander, and then added a hint of blackberry. The aroma has distinct blackberry notes with a subtle spice character. The flavor is complex with malt and cereal notes, intense spice and citrus flavors and a smooth sweet/tart berry finish."

Coffee Stout: "Known as the the “land of a thousand hills”, Rwanda produces some of the world’s finest coffee due to its volcanic soil, high altitude and plentiful rain. We are partnering with Thousand Hills Coffee as a source for this Rwandan coffee. Working with micro-entrepeneurs like Thousand Hills Coffee offers some of the world’s best ingredients and a chance to give the little guy a leg up. We start with a clean, dry stout brewed with a bit of smoked malt and dark roasted barley, and then age it for one week on whole coffee beans - 3/4 of a pound per barrel. The result is a rich, roasty flavor with a smooth finish."

Tomorrow, August 22, 2008, a tasting event is taking place at TC Alibi's Whiskey Bar between 6 to 7:30 pm.
