Samuel Adams – Escape Route

Escaping from winter’s darkness, this hazy golden, unfiltered Kölsch style creates a fresh start.  Our take on the classic hybrid style from Cologne Germany combines the subtle fruit notes of an ale with the smooth crispness of a lager for a bright, refreshing brew to help escape those lingering cold days. Available beginning in January.
