FACT SHEET: SAM 76

WHERE REFRESHMENT MEETS CRAFT

UNIQUELY DRINKABLE, FLAVORFUL AND AROMATIC AVAILABLE EARLY 2018

By experimenting with both lager and ale yeast strains, the brewers at Sam Adams came up with the concept for a brand new beer – Sam ’76. This truly unique brew takes two active fermentations and blends them together to create a deliciously harmonious result. This process delivevers a distinct flavor that showcases the slight fruitiness of an ale with the balanced drinkability and smoothness of a lager. Sam ’76 will surprise any craf beer lover with its huge flavor and aroma along with a light-bodied, refreshing crispness. At just 4.7% ABV, this brew is perfect for those sessionable occasions. Cascade, Citra, Mosaic, Simcoe and Galaxy hops impart a tropical citrus aroma that gives way to a bright, juicy citrus hop flavor but without the hop bitterness. The brewers have been experimenting for over a year, tested over 60 iterations with multiple combinations of 12 dierent hop varieties in the nano brewery in Boston in order to perfect the Sam ’76 recipe.

Sam ’76 will be available nationwide in early 2018 in 6-pack cans for a suggested

19 Crimes Wine

Initially, it might seem sort of gimmicky. But the more you delve down the rabbit hole that is 19 crimes, the more you realize how cool this concept is. Each bottle carries the name and real life story of criminals and rebels from another time.

The men on our labels are not those of fiction. They were flesh and blood. Criminals and scholars. In history, they share a bond � receiving “punishment by transportation.” It could have shattered their spirits. It didn’t. Today, we toast those men and the principles they lived by.

They even have an interactive app (free to download on your mobile device) that makes the characters come to life when you place your camera on your phone in front of each bottle. I know what your thinking, cool but what does it taste like? Honestly I wasn’t expecting much from this wine considering the low price point. I figured they used a cool concept to sell a meh wine. Boy was I shocked to find I really enjoyed the reds (the only ones I’ve tried to far). Now I find myself buying this wine not because of clever marketing or low price but because I genuinely enjoy this wine.  Check it out. Make your own opinion and let us know if you agree.
