Despite the hot weather, I’ve made the transition to fall beers. I began my exploration of this year’s fall seasonals with the 2010 Sam Adams Harvest Collection, which includes:
- Boston Lager
- Irish Red
- Harvest Pumpkin Ale
- Black Lager
The Dunkel is my favorite of this 12 pack mix, but I wish it wasn’t exclusive to the Harvest Collection. I’d buy the Dunkel by the six-pack.
The Harvest Pumpkin Ale is also exclusive to the 12 pack, but that’s OK with me. I’m not a big fan of pumpkin beers and although I like fruit beers generally, I usually don’t buy six packs of pumpkin beer. I confess to buying some Punkin Ale from Dogfish Head every fall, but that brew is sold in four packs. And it’s an incredible beer.
I enjoyed a case of Sam Adams Harvest Collection with my football games over the weekend of September 18-19. I’m glad that my wife likes pumpkin beer.
