For the third consecutive year now the Boston Beer Company out in Jamaica Plain is offering couples an opportunity to get married or renew their vows at the brewery while also having the opportunity to buy one or more bottles of Sam Adams Brewlywed Ale. The beer in question is a Belgian-style ‘Bride ale’ which is described as having “distinct and complex brew with layers of flavor including tropical, floral aromas of Summer and Ella hops, and subtle hints of spice and clove from Belgian yeast“. 200 cases were brewed this year and will retail for $14.99 a bottle.
Here is the full press release:
Join us on Wednesday, June 18th from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Boston Brewery as we host our one day release of Brewlywed Ale! AND get the chance to have Bob Cannon (yes – the guy with the beard) come to your home to brew. No really, keep reading.
Brides and grooms to be are invited to come down and get their hands on one (or more) of the 200 cases we brewed this year.
