There’s a beer for every season, and a season for every beer. With all the delicious craft beers out there now, finding the perfect beer for you throughout the year can become a bit of a challenge, so The Roosevelt is bringing you some of the best beers available to help you decide. Celebrate American Craft Beer Week at the Vander Bar this year as Sam Adam’s takes over all of our taps with an incredible array of beers chosen for the season. Whether you’re a fan of IPA’s, lagers or stouts, Sam Adams’ Tap Takeover will offer you a delicious brew to quench your craft beer thirst from September 17th all the way until October 3rd.
Start your adventure with a Sam Adams Grumpy Monk, a Belgian IPA with hints of spicy cloves and fruits mixed in with strong taste of brazen hops, the perfect crisp taste for the transition from summer to fall. If you’re looking for something less hoppy, Sam Adam’s Octoberfest blends the hearty taste of malts with a smooth caramel taste to create one of the signature Marzens in its collection. Those looking for something a little more adventurous should try the Kosmic Mother Funk Grand Cru, a funky brew that combines the complex flavors of dark fruits, cherry, cocao and vanilla with the sweetness of Belgian candi sugar to create a smooth taste. Aged in oak barrels this brew is a unique ale that can only be truly appreciated through personal experience. As an added treat, Sam Adam’s Longshot Neighborino Flander’s Red Ale combines the qualities of beer with a red wine inspired flavor complimented by notes of cherries with a woody malty finish to go with the changing color of the fall.
If you’re looking for pumpkin beers to get you in the mood for the upcoming holidays, try out the Traveler’s Jack O Traveler or Conery Island Brewing’s Freaktober Fest. These delicious pumpkin brews combine a hearty malt flavor with hints of pumpkin to create the perfect beer for an autumn evening in the city.
