Even though some people are savoring the dog days of summer, fall beers are starting to appear on store shelves. Sam Adams is ready for the chilly days and the change of colors. Ready to pour a pint and enjoy these seasonal favorites?
A staple during the fall is the Sam Adams OctoberFest. While many people will be cheering the return of the official celebration in Germany, enjoying one of these Märzen style beers a little closer to home can be equally as festive.
The OctoberFest beer has light hops with a toasty malt note that brings a little sweetness. Slightly roasted, the amber color does not denote a dark beer. Rather, it is smooth, malty and a delightful beer to toast to enjoying fun with good friends.
Whether enjoyed with a brat, pretzel or even just an All-American burger, this beer has great versatility. It invites everyone to raise a stein and enjoy a festive prost.
Since fall has become pumpkin season, the Sam Adams Jack-O brings those warm spices to the beer bottle. Although some pumpkin beers can be hearty, this version has a crispness that is inviting, even as pumpkin season starts early.
With a touch of brightness from citrus, the cinnamon and nutmeg seem lighter. Without missing the pumpkin notes, this fall beer is enjoyable even while wearing shorts.
Thinking about the Sam Adams Jack-O, it pairs well with a variety of fall foods. From that apple pie to a pork roast, there are plenty of food pairings. And, for someone who would prefer to drink their dessert, this beer is sweet enough to end a meal without being too overpowering.
For beer drinkers who want to sample all the fall beers, the Sam Adams Sweater Weather Variety Pack is a great choice. The multi-pack features OctoberFest, Jack-O, Festbier and the traditional Boston Lager. Whether it is the first game of football season, sitting by the fire or even just a leisurely afternoon with friends, the variety pack is always a good choice. And, you do not have to wear a sweater to enjoy one of these fall beers.
The Sam Adams fall beers are available now at various retailers. They will be available for a limited time.
What are your favorite fall beers? Do you enjoy seasonal beverages, or do you stick with the same beer all year round?
