What’s Brewing Bergseth Bros.

Weekly Online Newsletter Vol.137

Summer is officially upon us…well not yet its technically on June 21st!! What a beautiful weekend for getting the outside tasks done. Hopefully, you got to enjoy the weather with a beer in your hand and it was not all chores, like I spent my weekend. Between pulling the weeds and planting new grass seed I did enjoy a few beers from the Samuel Adams Summer Variety Pack. The new packaging design of the sampler packs are bright and colorful making it hard to miss on the shelf. The beers themselves are just as bold and bright as the new packaging – making them perfect for the long summer ahead.

If you’re looking for draught options don’t miss out on Samuel Adams Summer Ale, Porch Rocker or the VERY Limited Golden Ale.

PRESS PLAY: Summer Ale – Journey

Summer officially kicks off this month so if you haven’t already picked up an American Summer Variety Pack, now is the perfect opportunity. Whether you’re firing up the grill or lounging the longer days away, the six unique brews in this summer’s pack pair perfectly with any summer occasion. This year’s line–up includes:

The backbone of the Samuel Adams family of beers, this flavorful and balanced lager is our original brew that helped start a beer revolution.

The crisp citrus character of Noble hops and malted wheat get a lively kick from zesty lemon peel and spicy Grains of Paradise in this beer. Bright and refreshing, it’s summer in a glass.

This hazy golden Hefeweizen is our take on the classic German beer. Notes of clove and banana, signatures of this style, are complemented by a slight malt sweetness. Clean and crisp, this beer pairs best with a sunny summer day.

This beloved beer finally makes its way out of our Boston Brewery for the first time this summer. Light-bodied and hazy with the crisp taste of white wheat, this gose gets a summery twist from the tart and citrus flavors of lemon and raspberry.

The distinct flavors of Centennial and Cascade hops strike a balance between hoppy and refreshing for the summertime. The hops add their signature citrus and piney character, along with peach and melon notes, with a crisp, dry finish.

This bright golden beer is inspired by the laidback and easygoing days of summer. Clean and balanced, its malt sweetness is accented by Cascade hops for a crisp and simple yet refreshing flavor.

Samuel Adams Summer Ale Grilled Chicken Gyros Kebabs

Serves: 4


·         In a medium-sized glass bowl whisk together all marinade ingredients. Place the chicken pieces in a large, re-sealable plastic bag and pour in the marinade. Press the air out of the bag and seal tightly. Turn the bag to distribute the marinade evenly, place in a bowl, and refrigerate for 30 minutes to an hour.

·         In a medium glass bowl, combine Tzatziki sauce ingredients. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.

·         Prepare your gas or charcoal grill for direct cooking over medium heat (350° to 450° F). Remove the chicken from the bag and discard the marinade. Thread the chicken onto the skewers. Brush the cooking grates clean on your grill. Add two handfuls of the soaked, drained wood chips to the smoker box, or directly over the ashed-over charcoal. Close the lid of the grill. When smoke appears, grill the kabobs over direct medium heat, with the lid closed, until the meat is firm to the touch and opaque all the way to the center, 8 to 10 minutes, turning once or twice. Remove from the grill and let rest for 2 to 3 minutes. Serve warm with the Tzatziki sauce and Samuel Adams Summer Ale.
