Beers of autumn from New England brewers
Samuel Adams Bonfire Rauchbier
Made by: Boston Beer Co.
Alcohol by volume: 5.7 percent
This smoky ale may be one of the most genuinely German beers around. Boston Beer Company imports the malt, made of specially smoked barley directly from the Weyermann family in Bamberg, Germany. The malt gives it a very smoky flavor which is balanced by the sweet hints of caramel and toffee.
If youre eating a lot of smoky things its going to be perfect, says Jennifer Glanville, Boston brewery manager for the company.
The beer will only be available in the Harvest Collection Variety Pack along with OctoberFest, Black Lager, Irish Red, Harvest Pumpkin, and Boston Lager.
