April 6, 2009 by Aaron Goldfarb | 6 Comments | Filed in Brewer: Boston Beer Company, Country: America, Grade: A-, Grade: B plus, Grade: B regular, Style: Belgian White, Style: Bock, Style: Stout

Within the last month, Sam Adams released a new series of imperial brews in order to “offer beer lovers’ an intense version of some of their favorite traditional beer styles by boosting the ingredients and testing the limits of each traditional style” said the press release robot employed by the brewery.* I was excited to […]

Samuel Adams Hallertau Imperial Pilsner

January 5, 2009 by Aaron Goldfarb | 13 Comments | Filed in Brewer: Boston Beer Company, Country: America, Grade: A-, Style: Pilsner

8.8% ABV bottled Wrinkly Facebook At first it was kinda cute, like dogs that wear sweaters or people that let their annoying little children record their voicemail message. But now the madness has got to end. I’m talking about old people on Facebook. A few Saturdays ago, I was lounging around my friend’s house, looking […]

Samuel Adams Winter Lager

5.8% ABV from a six-pack My Porno Hook-Up You won’t believe this story, so you might as well just pretend I made it up. I have a lot of friends and I get invited to a lot of parties, especially as the holiday season heats up. And just like Kim Kardashian won’t turn down an […]

Samuel Adams Oktoberfest

5.7% ABV from a bottle The Vice Blogger Goes Off Beer It was August of 2002. One year out of college and all the debauchery in New York had caught up to me–I was in the worst shape of my life, tipping the scales at probably 215 or so. Going to happy hour every day–especially […]

Samuel Adams Utopias (2007)

July 3, 2008 by Aaron Goldfarb | No Comments | Filed in Brewer: Boston Beer Company, Country: America, Grade: A plus, Style: Strong Ale

25.6% ABV I’ve put my Patrick Ewing kneepads on, I’ve taken a few swigs of water for moisture, I’ve loosened up my cheek muscles, unhinged my jaw, and the dental dam is firmly in place…it’s time for me to fellate Samuel Adams Utopias. This is not just the best beer ever, it is not just […]

Samuel Adams Boston Lager

June 7, 2008 by Aaron Goldfarb | No Comments | Filed in Brewer: Boston Beer Company, Country: America, Grade: B regular, Style: Lager

4.75% ABV from a bomber The flagship Sam is maybe America’s most underrated beer. I think your average beer guzzling yahoo sees it as nothing more than a macro (not that he would know that condescending term), and an overpriced and snobby one at that. “No twist off cap?!” “I’ll need a bottle opener for […]

Samuel Adams Summer Ale

June 4, 2008 by Aaron Goldfarb | No Comments | Filed in Brewer: Boston Beer Company, Country: America, Grade: B plus, Style: "Summer" beer, Style: Wheat (Hefeweizen)

5.2% ABV on draught I’ve made clear my disdain for “summer” beers several times in the past, continually claiming I will never drink one again. Alas, I found myself out of town and at a Philadelphia Phillies game last weekend, shocked to see the nice, new stadium had the most meager of beer selection. In […]
