Drizly Expert Notes

Samuel Adams Boston Lager could perhaps be pinpointed as the beer that started the entire craft beer revolution. Born in the founder of Boston Beer Company, Jim Koch's garage on a modest home brewing set up, just like the revolutionary that the beer is named for, it is a beer that revolts against the status quo, pushing to make beer independent and exciting. The creative spirit of craft beer flowing through his veins even back in the 1980's, Koch took inspiration from a classic Vienna-style lager, hopping it up a bit more for a true American sensibility. The result is one of the most popular beers in the United States today.


This is a beer meant to be enjoyed from a glass so much so that a specific piece of glassware was designed just for it. It's okay if you don't have one though, just treat the beer proud and pour it into whatever you have available, allowing the beer to breathe, enabling the zesty aroma to peek out of the beer and into your face. The amber colored beer is bursting with aroma from the caramel malts and noble hops. The essence of lemon peel, crushed herbs, and floral spices jump out immediately, balanced by the sweetness of the malted barley. The flavor is similarly sweet with notes of cereal and toasted cinnamon balanced by citrus zest and flower petals rubbed between your fingers. It all becomes rounded out by the prickly carbonation and lively mouthfeel.

Samuel Adams Boston Lager is a stella beer to pair with revolutionary dishes. Great with a juicy piece of fried chicken, but perhaps even better if there is a warm, syrupy waffle served alongside that crispy, spicy thigh. Enjoy it with a cobb salad topped with your favorite blue cheese or have it alongside a caramel coated piece of cheesecake. It's a beer made to celebrate beneath an evening of fireworks or an afternoon hike.
