2014 Sam Adams Harvest Collection

Samuel Adams Harvest Collection

Where did the summer go? A hectic end to the summer caused the Boa Beer Blog to go dark, as August came and went without a blog post — the longest stretch since I started blogging over five years ago.

I’ll ease back in with a rite of fall – the Sam Adams Harvest Collection. The 2014 edition features three bottles each of:

  • Boston Lager (4.9%), I can drink Boston Lager anytime I want, so why is it included in every Sam Adams seasonal mixed 12-pack?
  • Octoberfest (5.3%), one of my favorite fest beers of the fall season is hearty, smooth, and extremely drinkable
  • Harvest Pumpkin Ale (5.7%), brewed with pumpkin and spices like ginger, cinnamon, and nutmeg, this beer is a well-balanced pumpkin ale
  • Harvest Saison (6.0%), an excellent interpretation of a traditional Saison

I was disappointed to see the Sam Adams Harvest Collection scale back from the usual 6 different beers to 4 – I like variety! Hope this isn’t a sign of things to come with Sam seasonal 12-packs.

  1. It is a little foreboding to see Sam Adams including only three (!) seasonals in the 12-pack. Glad to see the fall beers on the store shelves, though!
