Beer, American Kriek
Product Details

Aged on sweet yet tart Balaton cherries. Ale aged in oak barrels. At Samuel Adams, we have been barrel aging small batches of beer for many years. Our brewers have free rein to experiment, and one of their favorite places to do so is in the barrel room of our Boston Brewery. It is in this special room where centuries of brewing tradition meet craft brewing ingenuity. We have long used traditional barrel aging to soften flavors in beer while imparting a sweet, toasty note. Until now, these beers have only been enjoyed by a few lucky brewery visitors. I'm excited to roll out the barrels and release these special beers to the public for the first time with the Samuel Adams Barrel Room Collection. Cheers, - Jim Koch, Founder and Brewer. American Kriek: Aged on sweet yet tart Balaton cherries. The intense black cherry character in this beer comes from Balaton cherries, which were discovered in Hungary and are now grown in Michigan. These special cherries are prized for their depth of flavor. The tartness from the cherries is balanced by a rich malty character with toasted oak notes added from barrel aging. 7% alc./vol. Brewed by the Boston Beer Company, Boston, MA.


Government Warning: (1) According to the Surgeon General, women should not drink alcohol beverages during pregnancy because of the risk of birth defects. (2) Consumption of alcoholic beverages impairs your ability to drive a care or operate machinery, and may cause health problems.


Many Americans are not accustomed to handling their beer with great ceremony, but when it comes to this beer, it's important. We recommend pouring the beer gently into a traditional beer glass. Take care not to unsettle the fine layer of yeast that rests at the bottom of the bottle from the bottle-conditioning, a process which creates an extra smooth and balanced flavor in the beer. Enjoy this beer now from a traditional glass at 50 degrees or age it to develop rich and unique flavors.
