Brand new limited release is resolution-ary
PRESS RELEASE / January 7, 2019 (Boston, MA) – Samuel Adams Mountain Berry is an all-new limited release steeped with seasonal and geographical significance. Mountain Berry is a light ale aged on raspberries and blackberries grown in the Pacific Northwest. As a low alcohol option full of bright fruit notes, a refreshingly light body and pronounced color and aroma, Mountain Berry is the perfect brew for changing things up in the New Year.
Mountain Berry boasts bright berry notes and a subtle sweetness from the malt blend’s soft cereal and cracker notes. Balanced by a slight acidity, Mountain Berry is a light- bodied, drinkable ale that finishes dry and slightly tart. The incorporation of a botanical element like hibiscus rounds out the floral notes. Mountain Berry’s golden hue is striking and reflective of the beer’s aging process on raspberries and blackberries sourced from Washington, Oregon and California.
Bright and light, Samuel Adams Mountain Berry is a perfectly refreshing beer to start to the new year.
Pairing with Food: Slightly tart and sweet, Mountain Berry pairs well with a wide variety of foods. Try it with a meat and cheese board complete with grilled brie-stuffed figs. Stay on the lighter side with entrees like arugula salad with a lean protein and round out a meal with a dark chocolate or berries and cream pairing.

Samuel Adams is a leading independent, American craft brewer that helped to launch the craft beer revolution. The brewery began in 1984 when Founder and Brewer Jim Koch used a generations-old family recipe to brew beer in his kitchen. Inspired and unafraid to challenge conventional thinking about beer, Jim brought the recipe to life with hopes drinkers would appreciate the complex, full-flavor and started sampling the beer in Boston. He named the flagship brew Samuel Adams Boston Lager in recognition of one of our nation’s founding fathers, a revolutionary man of independent and pioneering spirit. Today, Samuel Adams is one of the world’s most awarded breweries and remains focused on crafting the highest quality beers through innovation and experimentation in the relentless pursuit of better. Samuel Adams remains dedicated to elevating and growing the American craft beer industry overall, including providing education and support for entrepreneurs and fellow brewers through its philanthropic program, Brewing the American Dream, which helps others pursue their American Dream.
