I stopped by the beer store today and noticed the appearance of Sam Adams Winter Lager. I’ve always been partial to Winter Lager — several years ago Winter Lager was one of my first forays into the craft beer genre (I know anything Sam Adams is really more craft-beer style than truly craft beer, but you get the idea). I also saw Sam Adams’ latest six-pack offering, Coastal Wheat. For my take on Coastal Wheat, which I sampled at Zoo Brew, click here. Another thing I noticed is the 22 oz. bottles of Marshall Brewing Co. offerings: Sundown Wheat, McNellie’s Pub Ale and Atlas India Pale Ale were the ones I saw. You can also get 22 oz. Marshall bottles at Hideaway Pizza, fyi.
In other blog news, get ready for The Thirsty Beagle’s take on the BCS: the Beer Championship Series. I’m working up the bracket — a 64-brew beer playoff — as we speak, and will post it soon and open voting.
