2010 Sam Adams Harvest Collection

It’s the first day of autumn, but there are more 90 degree days in the forecast — another example of the wacky weather we’re having this year in Washington, D.C.

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
  • Octoberfest
  • Irish Red
  • Dunkelweizen
  • 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.

  1. I’ll add that with fall coming (here?) Sam Adams Octoberfest is available on tap in many fine restaurants (and even a few not-so-fine ones). Had a few myself over the last week (Outback and Greene Turtle).
