I love the 2012 version of the Sam Adams Harvest Collection! I saw the mixed 12-pack in stores in mid-August, which was much too soon for fall seasonal brew, so I resisted for awhile. But as the air has turned cooler in recent days, I’m making the transition to fall beers.
The 2012 Samuel Adams Harvest Collection includes:
- Boston Lager
- Harvest Pumpkin Ale
- Latitude 48 IPA
- Hazel Brown
The Hazel Brown, a delicious Nut Brown Ale, is new to the Harvest Collection and is brewed in honor of the fall hazelnut harvest (5.2%).
In both 2009 and 2010, the Sam Adams Harvest Collection included a Dunkelweizen, but they removed it from the fall line-up in 2011. It’s back! In my post on the 2011 Sam Adams Harvest Collection, I implored the Boston Beer Company to “Bring back the Dunkel!”
Glad they listened!
