SAMUEL ADAMS BOSTON 26.2 BREW

 

This is the third year that Samuel Adams is a proud sponsor of the Boston Marathon - and that the brewers have released a commemorative beer for the race - Boston 26.2 Brew - to toast the runners and spectators. This beer will be available exclusively at select bars and restaurants along the marathon route and around Boston.

 

Much like the elite group of athletes that takes on the 26.2 miles of a marathon race, this brew is a rare find. An unfiltered wheat ale with a lower ABV, this light-bodied and refreshing brew has a light cereal note and soft smoothness with a hint of salt and peppery coriander. This unusual and bright brew is the perfect way to celebrate the 118th Boston Marathon.

 

For a full list locations serving the beer, visit our blog.

 

Last year, following the events that took place on race day, Samuel Adams donated all of the profits from the sale of Boston 26.2 Brew to support the survivors and their families.  This year, they will again donate all profits from the beer for the ongoing needs of the survivors.
