  • THE TOOLS

    You can’t have “holiday spice” without cinnamon. So we tried dozens of cinnamons and came to a blend of cinnamons grown in Southeast Asia. Unlike the more common varieties of cinnamon, the blend contains Indonesian and Vietnamese cinnamon. The Vietnamese cinnamon is prized for its intense and complex pronounced spice taste.

  • THE TRADE

    The spices for Samuel Adams Winter Lager are fresh ground just before brewing, adding character and depth to the generous quantities of malted wheat. We then brew these spices with a dark wheat bock, to put our own twist on the classic bock style. The result is a deep ruby lager with a warming spicy flavor profile.

  • THE LEGACY

    Bock beers, like the dark wheat bock Winter Lager, are classically strong dark lagers originating from the town of Einbeck, Germany. Translating to “billy goat,” some claim bock’s name association comes from being brewed during the astrological sign of Capricorn. Bocks are known for their rich malt character and low bitterness. High in food energy and nutrients, these beers were traditionally brewed by monks during fasting on holidays such as Christmas and Lent. Thus, these stronger brews are closely associated with the holidays.
