BAA and SAM

Post  Jack_Scaff on Thu Feb 23, 2012 12:56 am

I can't imagine I'll get into BOS any time soon, and quite honestly I have never been much a fan of Samuel Adams beers...BUT this is pretty cool.

Boston Beer will be creating a special commemorative beer, the Samuel Adams Boston 26.2 Brew, to mark this year's marathon.

How many great races could there be on the Left Coast if this caught on?

I think they wanted something they could pass out at aid stations during the race.

I like this idea, and I'll take some if that is what they are giving out at BC.

And for this one time special occasion, you just might find me drinking the new Sam Adams after the race.

Hosting a poker party tonight - 48 Bud Lights + 2 cases of some good beers.

Bud Light = taper beer (1 week to Napa!).

Rumor has it that next year Legal Sea Food may join the partnership and present Drunk Boston Lobster.
