Borne of our brewersâ?? many trips to Germany, Alpine Spring features a unique blend of lager attributes: the balanced maltiness and hoppiness of a Helles, the smoothness and slightly higher alcohol of a traditional spring bock, and the unfiltered appearance of a Kellerbier. The beer is brewed with Noble Tettnang hops to add a unique, bright orange-citrusy aroma and flavor.
Samuel Adams Boston Lager® is the best example of the fundamental characteristics of a great beer, offering a full, rich flavor that is both balanced and complex. It is brewed using a decoction mash, a time consuming, traditional four vessel brewing process discarded by many contemporary brewers. This process brings forth a rich sweetness from the malt that makes it well worth the effort. Samuel Adams Boston Lager also uses only the finest of ingredients including two row barley, as well as German Noble aroma hops. The exclusive use of two row barley not only imparts a full, smooth body but also gives the beer a wide spectrum of malt flavor ranging from slightly sweet to caramel to slightly roasted. The Noble hops varieties, Hallertau Mittelfruh and Tettnang Tettnanger, add a wide range of floral, piney and citrus notes, which are present from the aroma, through the flavor, to the lingering smooth finish. We take great pride in the Noble hops used in our beers. They are hand selected by Jim Koch and our other brewers from the world's oldest hops growing area. Among the world's most expensive, they cost twenty times as much as other hops
Local legends aren't just born, they're brewed. And no beer in the Midwest has a grander brewing tradition than Grain Belt. For over 100 years, Grain Belt has been the beer that fathers have passed on to sons and friends have passed amongst each other at local bars and watering holes. It is a beer with tradition that spans generations. Which is why it has become legendary-both here and across the country. In the 1940s, around the same time Grain Belt built its famous bottle cap sign overlooking the Mississippi River in Northeast Minneapolis, they introduced a "Beer of Exceptional Quality"-Premium. With its crisp, unique flavor, Premium quickly became the flagship of the Grain Belt brand. And still is to this day. Although the Grain Belt Premium recipe has changed hands over the years, one thing has remained the same-its legendary unique taste. And now that Premium is in the capable hands of a brewery with an even longer tradition than Grain Belt-the August Schell Brewery-may you rest assured that the flavor and heritage of Premium will live on forever. So as a local legendary beer, we raise a glass to all the people, places and things that make the Midwest such a rich and unique place to live. Here's to you!

Specially brewed from the finest malted barley, select cereal grains and choicest hops, Miller Lite delivers superior taste in a less-filling beer. If fact, Miller Lite won Best American-Style Lager or Light Lager at the 2010 Great American Beer Festival.
Quite possibly the most famous stout in the world, Guinness is produced by the Guinness brewery in Dublin, Ireland, and other locations in Ireland. It is a very dark stout beer that has a notable "cascade" effect below the head when it is poured, due to the nitrogen content of the liquid. This also produces a notably smooth head, because nitrogen bubbles are smaller than carbon dioxide bubbles.
