Sam Adams Brewery Tour & Infinium

1/24/2011 11:35:00 PM
Media rep DanDan swung by the Sam Adams Brewery last week for a tour led by Jim Koch himself and also got a sneak preview of their new Infinium beer.  Here's what he had to say:

I stopped by the original Sam Adams brewery to get a backstage tour of the Boston Brewery from founder Jim Koch, along with a sneak peak at their new offering, Infinium. As a home brewer (and beer drinker!) myself, I understand how difficult it is to make a completely new beer style that adheres to the German Beer Purity Law, that nothing can go into a beer besides the four basic ingredients: barley, hops, yeast and water. Through three years of collaboration with the world's oldest brewery, Weihenstephan, Koch and Dr. Josef Schradler have done it (and their work has actually resulted in a patent!). The result is a crisp, champagne-like beer, with hints of fruit (banana? apples? grapes?) and a unique, malty finish. Definitely unlike any beer I've tried before, and without doubt something worth trying, especially for the craft beer drinking novice! And, if you haven't had a chance to check out the home of the America's largest craft brewery (clocking in at right around 1% of the overall market), you should see where these world class beers are made.


To infinium and beyond!  Ok that was a bad pun.  But, not as bad as some other ones that I know.  What do you call a midget psychic that has escaped from prison?  A small medium at large.  ZING!
