Snow Day Cocktail Hour – Contrasting Wheat Ales

Come of the most enjoyable parts of a Snow Day are having a cocktail hour right at 5pm (you’ve got nowhere to drive to get there – or after!) and enjoying a beer after a few hours of shoveling snow (or ice/slush). This evening the Baron & Baroness combined both as they tasted two contrasting Wheat Ales from (the most mega) craft brewery – Samuel Adams.

Interspersed in our discussion of IBUs, we enjoyed their Cold Snap first, a wheat ale with citrus, spices – including coriander which in some ways we thought of as a grown-up Blue Moon. Then we enjoyed Hopscape, a Wheat Ale with added West Coast hops – which definitely made a difference.
