Samuel Adams and Infamous Brewing Co.

BOS x AUS

To celebrate a Samuel Adams Brewing the American Dream Pop-Up Pitch Room in Austin, Texas, Samuel Adams brewer Jennifer Glanville collaborated with Brewer Josh Horowitz from Infamous Brewery Co. to brew BOS x AUS Smoked Oyster Stout, a limited release beer inspired by the flavors of Boston and Austin. Infamous Brewery Co. is one of nearly forty brewers nationwide who has participated in Samuel Adams Brewing the American Dream.

Launching on March 12th, 2017 exclusively at the Pop-Up Pitch Room and surrounding bars, BOS x AUS combines the best of Boston and Austin with Wellfleet oysters from Massachusetts and malt smoked over post-oak and BBQ at Schmidt Family BBQ in Austin. For generations, Wellfleet Oysters have been famous for their balance of creamy sweetness and brine. Their distinct flavor comes from the clean, coastal waters of Cape Cod, MA. The smoked caramel malt from will impart a subtle smoked flavor to the brew, complementing the salinity of the oysters. Post oak is not too strong, unlike like mesquite or hickory, and the malt will even carry some flavor from the ribs, brisket, and chicken from the smoker.
