(BOSTON) — Newlyweds now have a little something else to celebrate other than their nuptials: a new beer from Samuel Adams. Newlywed Ale, a limited-edition pale ale, will only be available Thursday from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the brewery’s Boston location.
“Brides, grooms, couples, recently engaged and recently married” are invited to the event, which will feature wedding experts from TheKnot.com and a justice of the peace to perform impromptu ceremonies. (Wedding license not included.) Couples can also enter for a chance to win up to $1,000 for their rehearsal dinner.
The site describes the beer as a “limited release Belgian-style pale golden ale. A distinct and complex brew, Samuel Adams Brewlywed Ale offers layers of flavor including fruit and honeysuckle notes from the Belgian yeast, sweetness from malt and citrus character from hops.”
Jim Koch, founder and brewer of Sam Adams, describes the beer as the color of a golden wedding band.
The 750mL bottles are $14.99 each and can be purchased in a case of 12. Only 350 cases of the beer have been brewed.
