BOSTON, MA. On Monday, July 31st, the Financial District poured into Howl at the Moon Boston to sample some of the city’s best local brews, for their first Samuel Adams Tap Take Over event. Samuel Adams Beer was the only brew flowing through the taps at this dueling piano bar. Specialty micro brews were crafted a month prior at the Boston Beer Company in anticipation for this free beery event.
Howlers had their choice of 7 special brews, beginning with the classic Samuel Adams Boston Lager, which has a full-flavored taste with a balance of malt sweetness and hop spiciness. Next, was the timely Samuel Adams Summer Ale that tickled your taste buds with a lemon zest and taste of the Grains of Paradise.
One of the most popular brews that night was the Samuel Adams Blueberry Hill Lager, that wasn’t too sweet but fruity and crisp with a distinct blueberry aroma. Another favorite was the Samuel Adams Belgian Session ale, which is crisp and refreshing with a distinct Belgian character of fruit and spices. One of the brews that knocked most of our howlers’ socks off was the Samuel Adams Griffin’s Bow. This brewski is slowly aged in oak barrels, in blonde bareleywine with a wine-like aroma and distinct oak character. This brawny brew has an alcohol content over 10%; a few pints of these and you’ll be up singing, “I Love this Bar”, by Toby Keith with our players!
Beer advocates were also enjoying the Samuel Adams flights, which allowed them to sample 3 mini beers at once, on a convenient long wood paddle for $7. Howlers also mixed and matched some brews, mixing Samuel Adams Summer Ale with the Angry Orchard Crisp Apple Cider. If guests had any questions about these particular stouts, Samuel Adams Rep, Ricky Wolfe was there to educate all there is to know about these craft beers.
Howl at the Moon also featured some great prizes that guests could take home to remember the night. The night’s favorite, the Howl at the Moon bright orange koozie, kept the beer cold and warmed our howler’s hearts and hands. Another prize was a frosted Howl at the Moon Mug, with some bar swag inside, that included free admission passes to keep our guests coming! If guests “checked-in” to the event on Pintely.com, they were automatically entered to win a grand prize of a Samuel Adams gift basket full of beer swag goodies!
Guests enjoyed our special live entertainment, as the band of four played songs all over the board from country favorites like “Toes” to 90’s jams like “Walking on Broken Glass”. Part of the crowd were Howl’s own performers on their off night who couldn’t stay away from the stage too long; Howl’s favorite entertainers Debbie & Nate got on stage to sing “Look at Me Now” by Chris Brown.
Stay tuned for more brewski occasions like these to come!
