TORONTO, ON – Samuel Adams has announced a “revolutionary hybrid beer [that] brings together the light, citrus aroma of an American Ale with the clean finish and balanced drinkability of a Lager” is now available in Canada.
Sam ’76 (4.7% abv, 12 IBU) is described as follows:
Crafted with the signature Samuel Adams quality, this innovative new beer took more than 13,000 hours and 60 trials to create. The finished product blends two active fermentations together to create a lightly golden, slightly veiled brew with subtle citrus tropical aroma that is refreshing and smooth. Cascade, Citra, Mosaic, Simcoe and Galaxy hops impart a tropical citrus aroma that gives way to a bright, juicy citrus hop flavour without the hop bitterness.
Sam ’76 is available in 473 ml cans and 6 x 355 ml cans at beer retailers in Ontario, Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Quebec, and New Brunswick. It will also be available on draught at select licencees in the same provinces.
