Taco Tuesday featuring OctoberFest!

Ofest Taco TuesdayWhile a busy summer has taken us in a variety of different directions, today we reconnected with our friends over at Pennypackers Food Truck, a local Boston-area food truck, to create a taco that is infused with one of our beers.

To help welcome the fall season, we sent a few cases of our popular Samuel Adams® OctoberFest, which is our version of the classic Oktoberfest lager which blends 5 roasted malts for a rich and hearty flavor. Pennypackers decided to match the big, caramel  malty taste of OctoberFest with Korean BBQ flank steak with Bok Choy Slaw and Beery Bird Chili Vinaigrette. The sweet, caramel, and toffee notes in the beer work very well with the spice and soy punch of Korean BBQ. You can taste all of the varied complexity of the fresh chilis, herbs, spices, and pear; all buoyed on a bed of German malty goodness that is Samuel Adams OctoberFest. Read More

Taco Tuesday featuring Alpine Spring!

Taco_AlpineSpringAfter a few months apart, we have reconnected with our friends Pennypackers Food Truck, a local Boston-area food truck, to create a taco that is infused with one of our beers.

To help start thinking of warmer days ahead, we handed the guys our spring seasonal Samuel Adams® Alpine Spring, an unfiltered lager with a balance of bright citrus & crisp maltiness. Pennypackers decided to match the citrus notes of this brew with braised pork with beans, cabbage, and cilantro for a wide-array of flavors all complimenting one another.

Given that not all Sam fans can get to Boston to enjoy these in person, Pennypackers once again was kind enough to pass along the recipe and simple cooking instructions for you to experiment and create your own. Looking for other taco recipes?  Take a look here.

Taco Tuesday featuring Harvest Pumpkin Ale!

For the third month we’ve come together with a local Boston food truck, Pennypackers Food Truck, to create a taco using one of our beers. The previous installments provided awesome recipes for shredded pork tacos with a Dark Depth’s Baltic IPA barbeque sauce and lemongrass chicken tacos cooked in Verloren.

To honor the changing of the seasons here in New England, this month we gave the guys our Harvest Pumpkin Ale, a fall favorite that is brewed with over 17 pounds of real pumpkin per barrel and traditional pumpkin pie spices, adding a full body and spicy sweetness to this dark reddish amber brew.  Pennypackers decided to match the distinct roast and spice character with beef short ribs to create a contrasting experience for fall.

Taco Tuesday featuring Verloren!

You may remember back in July we came together with a local Boston food truck, Pennypackers, to create a taco using one of our beers. The first installment was a huge success, as Pennypackers created an awesome barbeque sauce using Dark Depths, our Baltic IPA, in a phenomenal shredded pork taco.

This month we gave the guys Verloren, our gose (pronounced “goes-uh”) style beer which is brewed with over 50 percent malted wheat and spiced with coriander and salt. While we understand some may not be able to make it to Boston to enjoy today, Pennypackers was kind enough to pass along the recipe and simple cooking instructions for you to experiment and create your own.
