The beginning of Two Hearted: Bell's Hop Selection

Wanted to share this cool video from Bell's Brewery about their hop selection for one of my favorite all-time beers, Two Hearted.

Check it out.

"In September we traveled to the Pacific Northwest for our annual hop selection. We met with many farmers who've become friends over the years. Their hop fields are extensions of our brewery and they care about quality as much as we do. This is the beginning of #TwoHearted."

Sam Adams x Dogfish Head: CollaBEEration

Dogfish Head: Stop, collaBEErate and listen! Excited to announce that we’ve teamed up with our new co-workers at The Boston Beer Company to create the ultimate collaboration beer – CollaBEEration!

Brewed with two very different types of honey – hello, Zambezi and Brooklyn! – this continually hopped pilsner celebrates the coming together of two breweries. Though vastly different, you’ll find they’re exceptionally complementary.

The use of bees and honey in this special limited release is a nod to the interdependence and unity between Dogfish Head and Samuel Adams, and the result is a remarkably smooth and clean beer that’s chock full of tropical and floral notes, balanced by an earthy spice.

Hitting taps Friday, Oct. 11 at our Milton Tasting Room & Kitchen, as well as the Samuel Adams Boston Brewery Taproom, available … until it’s not!

Introducing... Jägermeister Arrogant Bastard Ale

Hell yes you read that correctly.

A collaboration between two fiercely independent entities rooted in commitment to uncompromising uncommonness. With a complete disinterest in catering to the masses, both built their legacies around the core belief that what makes them notorious is what makes them… them. So what happens when you combine such forces? You’re looking at it.

Brewed in Berlin, this 8.5% ale is brewed with the secretive proprietary blend of herbs, roots, fruits and spices provided by the gatekeepers at Jägermeister in Wolfenbüttel, Germany. Yes, there’s a town in Germany with that name. Yes, it’s where Jägermeister is headquartered and made.

The result carries with it an audacious level of complexity and depth. Predictably, it’s not for everyone. Nothing worth its weight ever is. Nothing worth a damn ever is. But for those who seek a higher understanding, we offer this next step in liquid enlightenment.

You were already combining the two on your own. After all, the gargoyle and the deer are ever watching. They never blink. Ever.


Born Yesterday | What Makes Fresh Hops So Special

Lagunitas BrewMonster Jeremy Marshall walks us through what makes fresh hops so special in the unfiltered, lupulin-drenched, Born Yesterday Fresh Hop ale.
