Sam Adams Patriot Homebrew Contest!

Sam Adams has just launched it's Patriot Homebrew contest!

Pyramid Goes Imperial!

Pyramid Brewery is rolling out the first in a line of new limited edition, specialty brews they're calling "Brewers Reserve". Their first beer in the series is Imperial Hefeweizen (at a whopping 7.5% ABV), available at finer beer joints and in 22oz bottles if you're lucky enough to have a good liquor outlet nearby.

The Imperial Hefe is a smooth, unfiltered ale featuring a "pleasant" hop flavor with a more full-bodied and robust taste then their world class Hefeweizen. The limited edition ale is brewed in small batches of less than 120 barrels and uses a combination of 60% malted wheat with Nugget and Tettnang hops.

I'm a lover of all beers Pyramid, 'specially their Hefe... I can not wait to try this bad boy on for size!
