Sam Adams Not Your Average Beer: The Best Craft Beer Today.

There is a lot of craft beer on the market today, in this article I would like to focus on one specific brand, as well as a few of their craft beers. Sam Adams is not your average beer, they many crafts of beer, and we will be discussing a couple of them today.

October fest:Sam Adams Octoberfest

As we start to transition into cooler nights, as summer begins to come to an end. We start to look for a warmer beer, Sam Adams October fest beer delivers that warm feeling we look for on those short, cool fall afternoons.

In 1810 the October fest tradition was born, when Munich celebrated the Crown Prince’s wedding, with a special beer and a sixteen-day party. Can you imagine a sixteen-day party? My longest party was three days, and that was my graduation and going away party.

Sam Adams version of this classic beer style blends hearty malts, for a deep, smooth flavor with notes of caramel, creating a brew that is perfect for fall. Or whatever you are celebrating. Perfect all by its self, or with food.

Food pairings: Small plates, French onion soup, crab cakes, and mac and cheese. Entrees, Sausage, roasted chicken, pot roast, as well as burgers on the grill. So, pick some up today, and invite some friends over for a backyard barbecue.

Jack- O

This is a new beer for Sam Adams and is available for a limited time of the year August – October. Just one more reason to love fall. So, get this one while you still can. Jack-O’s cinnamon and nutmeg aromas remind you of a time when mom was in the kitchen, baking fresh pumpkin pie.

This craft pumpkin ale goes perfectly with the transition of summer into cooler days, and nights. A pure shandy ale, that tastes like pumpkin pie, with a subtle note of fresh citrus. If you are like me and love a good slice

Jack-O Pumpkin Ale

of pumpkin pie, then I am sure that you are going to love this craft beer from Sam Adams.

Jack-O is super by its self and also pair well food, appetizers; baked brie, and bacon wrapped dates, that sounds like fall to me. Entrees; Meatloaf, who doesn’t love a good home made meatloaf? do no forget about dessert, apple cider doughnuts and sweet potato pie. Now that sounds inviting to me.

White Christmas:

Another nice seasonal craft beer for Sam Adams. An unfiltered white pale ale, with a festive twist. Sorry I could not find a release date for this on yet, I am guessing around thanksgiving time though, we will have to keep our eyes open for this one.

This ale is hazy, crisp, and bright in flavor. This unfiltered white ale has a unique and festive twist. It’s crisp wheat character combines with the warming spices of cinnamon, nutmeg, and orange peel, for a flavorful and refreshing brew that is perfect for the season.

This craft beer is perfect for drinking all by its self or paired with food. Small plates; dried cranberry and goat cheese salad, mussels, and Gorgonzola cheese. For the entrees, we have duck,baked ham, risotto, seared scallops, and white fish.

I know, it is sad that the summer is coming to an end. Soon we will be all bundled up, and complaining about the cold. Everyone but me, I will be all stocked up on plenty of Sam Adams craft beers. I pretty sure this will help keep me warm on those long cold winter nights. Along with my beautiful wife. Wink, Wink.

Cold Snap:

A white ale brewed with a blend of exotic spices. Crisp with a smooth finish, golden, and lively. The crisp character of this lively unfiltered white ale gets a kick from a bright blend of spring spices. Orange peel, and plum add a subtle sweetness, while coriander contributes a peppery bite. Creating a refreshing flavor that signals spring is soon on its way.

After enduring a long cold winter, there is nothing better than a clean, crisp, refreshing brew. To wake up the body soul from a long hibernation. Like bears emerging from a cave, we venture outside foraging for food. We uncover the grill, and get it cleaned off from the last meal that was cooked on it. We shed our winter coats, look for some meat, and throw it on the grill.

After which we want something light and refreshing to wash the meat down with. Since I have brought up the subject of food, here are a few morsels to pair with this brew, if you choose to have it with food. Appetizers; smoked salmon, pork empanadas, and my least favorite, sushi. For the entrees, we have Indian food, lamb curry, and pad Thai. I have no idea of what pad Thai is so please do not ask.Sam Adams Cold Snap If by chance you do know what pad Thai is, please, by all means leave me a reply in the comments section of this article. I would greatly appreciate it. Let’s not forget about dessert; Orange-ginger ricotta tart, spiced cake with vanilla ice cream, and panna cotta.

Keep In Mind:

On a last note, I would like to remind you that all of these craft beers from Sam Adams not your average beer, are all a seasonal brew. Meaning, that they are not available all year round. I suggest that if you find one that you like. Stock up on it, to make sure you have enough until they come back out with it.

Or, if you are more like me, you will enjoy the flavor of the season, and move on to the next seasonal brew and keep up with the seasons as they happen. It just so happens, that every year during the winter, I can not wait for Sam Adams summer ale to hit the shelves. Of all the craft beers that Sam Adams brews, the summer ale is my absolute favorite brew. Let me know which craft beer is your favorite, don’t be shy, I won’t bite. I hope you find something here that piqued your interest.

Beer Goggles For Everyone:

Beer has been letting ugly people, like me, have sex for centuries. You know what I am talking about, we have all been there one time or another.

Those Lovely Goggles:Beer Goggles

Most of you know exactly what I am talking about, but some of you younger one may not. So, I am going to attempt to fill you in. Beer googles is reference to when we have had too much to drink. Then the person who you normally would not go home with, suddenly become the most attractive person on the planet.

Drinking beer, or alcohol in general makes us feel invincible. It also distorts our vision. We feel happy as well, unless of course you are a mean drunk. And when we feel happy, that not so good-looking person sitting next to us at the bar, all of a sudden becomes Bo Derrick or whatever super model you fantasize about. We end up in bed with and do not even realize it until the next morning.

The Next Morning:

This is where things start to become interesting. When wake up the next morning and do not realize something happened until you roll over, and there is someone laying next to you. And, the very first words out of your mouth, is what the hell did I do. This does not apply to just men, this happens to women as well. Ther is however, some good news. There has been a lot of marriages take place because of this phenomenon. I know, it sounds impossible, but it is true. Think about it for a second.

You went out the night before, had a few to many beers and went home and had sex with someone. You did not plan on any of this happening. But you had sex, what can happen when you have sex. Especially when we are drunk, we forget the all important condom. The next thing you know someone is pregnant. This is something that happens all the time. Now you know what beer googles are. And, why I say beer has helped ugly people have sex for centuries.Pregnant Woman

Doing The Right Thing:

Do I have your attention now? Good, because now comes the harsh realality. You yourself ( a woman) or you ( a man ) got pregnant. You did not want this to happen, but it did, and now you need to deal with the situation. Ultimately this is the woman’s decision. After, all it is her body that carrying another human being inside of her. You are the man and should take responsibility for knocking her up.

In general, this usually means getting married. So, the two of you need to decide if that is what you want to do. There are of course other ways to deal with the situation. Like abortion, but I do not condone this act. There is also joint custody, and you as the man should help out financially, but, if you ask me, the best way to deal with this is to get married. A lot of couples have started out this way, and made it work for a lifetime. I have always believed that it was meant to be, it is going to happen. And, most times it turns out to be a wonderful situation.

Making It work:

Now, just because you went home with someone that normally you would not have, does not mean that this person is ugly. Every single person in this world has some kind of beauty about them. This person may not be a super model, but is special in some other way. I am willing to bet, that this person is not as unattractive as you first thought. Maybe, there was some other reason you had for not getting with this person in the past. It is my belief that we should take the time to get to know one another. No matter what we think about them, everyone of us has been put on this earth for one purpose or another. Regardless of the color of skin, or what religion we practice, we all came from One creator. I believe that everyone of us should do our best to get along with one another. So what, you got someone pregnant it is not the end of the world. Maybe, just maybe it is the beginning of the world.Getting Married

In today’s time, it is more important then ever to try to get along with our neighbors. Regardless of the color of their skin, or the religion that they practice. In one way or another we are all the same. If we bleed, we bleed the same color red. So get rid of the hate that’s in your heart, and let love in. Maybe, we should all drink more beer, and wear those damn’d old beer goggles. We become better people with them on. Beer goggles for everyone. All of us beautiful people drink more beer, and enjoy life for a change.

I would like to know if any of you have encountered this situation in your life. If you have, please, let me know. I would like to know how it all worked out for you. I would greatly appreciate it. So, do not be shy, leave me a comment below. I reply to everyone, good and not so good. Go ahead, I have broad shoulders, I can take it.

Have A Great Day:

Today I talked about beer goggles for everyone. And what they are. And the fact that beer has helped ugly people have sex for thousands of years. Think about it, this may be how you ended up being here on God’s green earth. More then likely you did come from an unexpected or unplanned pregnancy. Perhaps, the consumption of beer or some other alcohol contributed to your parents getting together in the beginning. I am willing to bet, that if you went and asked dear old mom and dad, they more then likely met at a party, or at a bar on a night out with some friends.

As always, drink responsibly, and please don’t drink and drive.

sincerely: John D.

Chill Out With A Frozen Beer: A new trend.

In light of the hot weather that we are experiencing this summer. There is a new trend taking hold this summer, frozen beer. The ultimate adult slushy.

Choose A Beer:

Choose a beer, any old beer will be just fine. Do you have a favorite beer? Well, good you can certainly use it. Now, why don’t we try something new? I mean we are already trying this new trend, why not try a new beer? Like say any one of the new craft beers that are now available.

If you are an old-fashioned person, there is no reason why you can not use the beer that you have been drinking since the beginning of time. Some of us started at a very young age, like myself, I was three years old when I had my first beer. If I can remember the story correct, it was a Coors. That’s the beer that my father always drank. So naturally it became my beer of choice.

These days I like to try other brands, and recently I have been venturing into the craft, or micro brews. And to my surprise, they are quite refreshing. So, the advice that I have for you, is stop being a stick in the mud, and throw caution into the wind. Try a craft beer today.

Freeze It Up:

Freezing your beer can be a little bit tricky, especially if you leave it in the bottle. As most people know, when liquid freeze’s’es it expands. And, as it does this, it wants to escape from the container that it is in. I think you can guess what happens to the bottle now. That’s right the bottle will crack, making the beer undrinkable. Believe me, no one wants to drink beer or any other beverage with shards of glass in it.Wasted Beer:

I recommend that you pour the beer into a plastic or a metal cup. This will allow the beer to expand and the plastic cup will let the expansion happen, with no problem. The plastic will stretch with the expanding liquid. The metal cup will contain the beer and provide a give while the expansion takes place. Meaning the beer will expand upwards, not outwards.

You may be asking yourself, can beer really freeze? Well, yes it can. Beer has enough water content in it to be able to freeze. Go ahead give it a try, don’t be shy.

Keep An Eye On It:

You need to keep an eye on the beer as it is freezing. We do not want the beer to become solid. If you leave it in the freezer for too long it will become a solid. That is not what we want to have happen. You want the beer to become the consistency of a slushy. You know, it’s like when we were kids and going to 7-11 and getting a Slurpee. Remember those? Ice cold refreshment on a hot summer day. unless, you have a machine at home that keeps the beer moving around at a temperature that keeps it from fully freezing.

This is going to require a little work on our part. You can not just put the beer in the freezer and forget about it. it is not a set it and forget process. You want to go to the freezer about once an hour, just to take a look at how much ice is accumulating in the container. Give the beer a stir when you are checking on it. this will help keep it from freezing all the way. Once you have it to where it is partially frozen, you are ready to stick a straw in it and enjoy the ice-cold refreshment. Does this bring back some childhood memories or what? Only, in a more adult sense.Slushy Beer I am sure that this will be a big hit for your next party, or backyard barbecue. Your friends will not be able to stop talking about this one, you big party animal you.

Enjoy The Summer Heat:

Instead of complaining about the summer heat, enjoy it. Last week I gave you a way to keep cool with white wine, this week I have given you a way to beat the heat with a frozen beer. unless of course you have a health condition, where the heat makes it difficult for you to be outside. In wich case, you can still enjoy a frozen beer indoors.

Lately my wife has been yelling at me to spend more time outside, I do not like the heat. The heat and my bad heart do not get along very well. Now that I have a way to cool off, I can spend some more time outside with her and my son who lives with us. So grab life by the horns, freeze some beer, just not all the way. And enjoy some good time with friends and family.

Thank You:

Thank you very much for stopping by today, I really appreciate it. I hope that you have found something here today that is helpful. When I ran across this topic, I said John, you have to share this story with anyone who will listen. And here we are,this is my goal in life , to help as many people that i possibly can. When I find or hear about topics such as this one I will always pass it on to you. Do you have something that you want to hear? Let me know I am happy to assist in order to make life more enjoyable for you. Cocktails are great way to enjoy life if you ask me. That’s just my oppinion though, we have been enjoying cocktails since the beginning of time. And even Jesus Christ our lord turned water into wine once. Atleast that’s the story that is told in the bible. I know not everyone believes in the bible, but I do not want to debate scripture here. if you are looking for that, there are plenty of sites out there.

You Want Beer? You Can’t Handle The Beer:

Today we will be discussing beer, you want beer, I have beer. All types, from the usual s, to the micro brews and everything in between. Thank you for stopping by, and giving this article a read.Beer Goggles

Lots Of Beer:

We all like a nice ice-cold beer at the end of the day, don’t we? I know I sure as heck do. Have you noticed lately that the stores are chock-full of new micro brews now. Sometimes I think you have to be genius just have a beer. And the terminology is enough to give you a headache. And, don’t even get me started on the brands. We could be here all day on that subject.

For now let’s concentrate on a few of the types of beer. Like IPA’s Stouts and Lagers. Do not worry, I have your back. I will touch base on each one of these. But I do not want to get too far off track from craft beers. However, these can all be a form of craft beers. Now, I am going to stop dancing around here, and dive right in to the topic.India Pale Ale


What is an IPA? well the letters stand for India Pale Ale. These beers are usually light. And there are a lot of brands of these beers out there.

People usually have two complaints about IPA’s, and those are, number one, they are too bitter. Number two, they have too much alcohol in them. This is determined by the brewer, IPA’s are still made from hops. The more hops that are used in the brewing process, the more bitter the beer will be. Now, as for the part of too much alcohol, again, determined, by the brewer. Either way you look at it IPA’s are here to stay. All you need to do is find the one that is perfect for you. We all have different taste’s.

Let’s Talk About Stout’s Baby:

Just about everyone of us knows the famous Guinness beer. Just had to throw that out there. Alright then, stout’s are a darker beer. And I have always found them to be on the bitter side, as well as a thicker consistency. Stout’s like Guinness beer have never been one of my favorites.

My first and last experience with Guinness was in a little Irish pub, that was in of all places, Hong Kong. We had been out to sea for a while, and one of our stops for liberty call ( Free time off ship ) Well anyway the bus I was on stopped. So, I got off and walked down a stone path. The path led me to this little Irish bar. I went in and was amazed by the fact, that there were people who looked like me. American people, you have to understand, we were on a tour of the orient. Every place we stopped, there were no American looking individuals. Let’s get back to the beer, I ordered a Guinness pint, took a sip, and immediately knew this beer was not for me. Way too bitter for my taste, I didn’t want to be rude, so I finished it. After, which I ordered a more refreshing type of beer.

These types of beers get their color from roasting the hops for a longer time. This also brings out the bitterness of the beers. However, I am not trying to discourage you from trying stout beers. I am simply giving you my honest opinion about them. Go ahead, try some, maybe you will like stout’s. Like I said earlier, we all have different tastes. Stout Beer

Lager’s And Pilsner’s:

Now I am getting to the last types that I am going to talk about. First one is lager’s, like Sam Adams Boston lager. This is another one that has that bitter notes, but the hops were not roasted as long as with Guinness. Most folks tend to like this beer, but this is another one that I do not like. Now, don’t get me wrong, Sam Adams makes a couple of beers that I enjoy very much. For instance, their summer ale. I find this beer to be lite and refreshing. The same goes for their winter lager, I really enjoy this one.

The last one on my list of you want beer? You can’t handle the beer. Will be pilsner beers, these are the more common beers. Like Budweiser and, Labatt’s Blue. These beers are usually a lite colored beer. Where the hops are’nt roasted for that long of a time, and the alcohol content is on the lower side. Perfect for the end of the day drink, when you need something that is thirst quenching. I have to say, that pilsner beers, would be favorite type to purchase and consume, As a matter of fact, I happen to have some pilsner beers at home, in my refrigerator. Want to come over and have one with me? Then come on let’s get this party started friends.

Try Something New:

Today I have rambled on about a few different types of beer. Perhaps you have already tried some of them. Or, perhaps you have never heard of some of them. No matter where you fall, I believe that every once in a while, we need to step out of our comfort zones, and try something new. Life is way to short to keep doing the same old routines, day in and day out.

Get a little adventurous, try a few different beers. Invite some buddies over and share one or two with them. Live a little, have some fun. Like I said life is too short. Don’t end up like me, I had a heart attack at the age of thirty-seven. And I ended up flat lining, meaning I was clinically dead. Now, I try to live life to the fullest, and try to have as much fun as I possibly can. I implore you to do the same. So kick back and have an ice-cold one with me.

Thank you stopping by today, and as always, please drink responsibly and please don’t drink and drive. Love always, and God bless.

Sincerely John J, Denekar II
