The Beer Snob
Turning up our noses at inferior beers


The first thing one notices in a Samuel Adams® Winter Lager is its color: the deep brown of winter. Then comes the magical aroma which promises something special on the tongue. The warm aroma of cinnamon and ginger which blends with the roasty sweetness of the malted barley and hint of citrus from the orange peel. And after that first sip the promise is fulfilled. On the palate Samuel Adams® Winter Lager is rich and full bodied, robust and warming, a wonderful way to enjoy the cold evenings that come with this season.

Jim Koch founded The Boston Beer Company in 1984 because he believed that Americans deserved better beer.
Today, we’re a team of about 350 people, and we all share a common passion for bringing great Samuel Adams® beers to beer lovers everywhere. We've worked hard for the many successes we've enjoyed over the years.

The Boston Beer Company has been cited as one of the best companies to work for by Boston Magazine, one of the Best Entry-Level Jobs by The Princeton Review, and our beers have won more awards than any beer in history. Jim has been named an "Entrepreneur of the Year" by Inc. Magazine. Our brewers keep amazing us with innovative new brews, most recently Samuel Adams Utopias and Samuel Adams® Chocolate Bock.

I had never had their Winter Lager, so I thought I’d give it a shot. According to the 6-pack packaging… This rich and hearty lager is brewed with flavorful spices such as cinnamon, orange zest and fresh ginger. The character and complexity of Winter Lager add warmth to a winter evening, and is …

Great domestic micro-brew. It always pleases. The taste is great. However, consider the fact that my favorite beer is free beer, and my all time favorite beer is, cold free beer!!!       This lager has great body and it is pleasant to drink in the winter months.  I love how the brewery is willing to try new flavors, they have great quality control, I have never had a mediocre beer from them!      Honoring a great American patriot. Much nicer …
