Samuel Adams Summer Styles Variety Pack

Summer has arrived! At least for Samuel Adams it has, since the Summer Variety Pack has arrived in stores.  This year, Pale Ale and Blackberry Witbier (a winner in the 2008 beer lover’s challenge, which didn’t seem to be judged by beer lovers, in my opinion) were replaced by two new styles: Rustic Saison and East-West Kolsch.

In the pack, there are 2 bottles each of:

  • Boston Lager
  • Samuel Adams Light
  • Summer Ale
  • Latitude 48 IPA
  • East-West Kolsch
  • Rustic Saison

I have to admit, there’s a lot of potential in this mix pack, particularly since I’ve tried the Rustic Saison on tap and it was pretty good. It should be a great summer beer.

Have you tried the Summer Styles Variety Pack?  What’s your opinion?

Summer Beer Time!

Today, when I got home from work, it was time to dust off the lawnmower and make a pass at the lawn.  The grass wasn’t too long, but just patchy enough to need to take care of it.  Not that I was excited to mow the lawn, but you know what it means when it’s time to mow the lawn, right?  Summer beers are here!

Just to double check, I stopped by the store, and sure enough, there were all the summer styles, or “lawnmower beer” styles, on the shelves.  Just to show there were no hard feelings with Samuel Adams, I picked up the “Summer Styles” 12-pack.

The styles in the pack are:

  1. Boston Lager
  2. Sam Adams Light
  3. Summer Ale
  4. Pale Ale
  5. Blackberry Witbier
  6. Latitude 48 (Samuel Adams’ new IPA – review to come)

Every year, I enjoy the mix-packs, and this one is no exception.  With variety like that, how can you hate summer?  Cheers!
