The Annual Beer Summit Samuel Adams Octoberfest is just over one week away! The festive event is scheduled for both next Friday & Saturday September 9th & 10th, with special guest Jim Koch making his yearly appearance on Friday for the ceremonial tapping of the keg! Guest Blogger extraordinaire Mike Micalone actually won tickets to Friday's event through The Real Beer Nut Norman Miller's blog last week, and he is such a good friend (or is it that I'm such a good friend), that he is taking me with him!
Seeing how the OFest is coming up next week, I figured I would share the full list of beers that will be available for purchase and your enjoyment.
So without further delay, here is the list of beers on tap for this kick ass event:
Cherry Wheat - If you haven't done so, try a Cherry Wheat with a wedge of lime
Boston Brick Red - Hard to find on tap, but readily available at the TD Garden for Bruins games
Boston Lager - Perhaps my favorite offering by Samuel Adams
East West Kolsch - Part of the Summer Mix Pack
Latitude 48 - Very solid IPA
Oaked Aged Porter
Simcoe - Part of the Deconstructed Latitude 48 mix pack
Oaked Ale/Maple Pecan - Mike tried it at the AHA Rally in Boston
Pumpkin - Introduced last year at the Beer Summit/Sam Adams OFest!
So if you haven't already purchased your tickets yet, this list might just give you a little incentive to do so. Tickets for Friday's session, which runs from 5-10pm, are $37.50 and include FOUR (4) beers, beer stein, live music, food (additional fee), and of course seeing Jim Koch tap the keg. Saturday's session, running 12-10pm, is $16.50 and includes your stein and your first beer (Octoberfest).
