There’s a new red coming from Boston, and this one has little in common with socks or baseball.
Samuel Adams is working toward the release of its version of a Boston red Irish style ale in bottles. Bottling the beer is a departure from being “historically only… found on tap in Boston, making it impossible to take home this piece of the city’s brewing history … until now” according to a label filed with the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB). The 750ml bottle of 5.7 percent ABV ale features pale and caramel malts.
It is recommended to consume the limited Boston brewery release prior to March 2018 for “brewery fresh taste.”
An email sent to Samuel Adams seeking additional detail was not immediately returned.
