Samuel Adams’ Single Batch series: 4 great beers in 22-ounce bottles

The beers are craft-brewer perfection

The Boston Beer Co., the nation’s largest craft brewer, has a reputation as a maker of gateway craft beers: You try a Samuel Adams Boston Lager or Winter Lager, and then maybe you move on to something more aggressive, something more exciting - something from the likes of Founders, Stone, or Oskar Blues.

But Sam Adams has innovated more than just about any other craft brewer in the past year - introducing the champagne-like Infinium, a collaboration with Weihenstephan, the oldest brewery in the world; rolling out the Latitude 48 IPA Deconstructed variety pack that showcased five different varieties of hops; and adding an excellent Belgian stout, Thirteenth Hour, to its Barrel Room Collection of wood-aged Belgian beers.
