SAMUEL ADAMS NEW ENGLAND IPA

Samuel Adams Releases Juicy, Hazy New England IPA Nationwide

New England IPA Brings a Hazy Punch of Citrus Juiciness to a Hop-Forward Beer Style

New England’s leading independent craft brewer is paying homage to its roots by proudly celebrating the national release of Samuel Adams New England IPA, a refreshingly juicy and hazy IPA. Previously available only in New England, Sam Adams brewers listened to drinkers’ enthusiasm for the beer, which was the best-selling growler of 2017 at the Boston Brewery, and are responding by rolling it out across the country for craft beer lovers to enjoy.

Developed in Sam Adams’ experimental nanobrewery in Boston, New England IPA is a medium-bodied, unfiltered brew with a slight sweetness that is perfectly balanced by the unique combination of Mosaic, Citra, Galaxy, Simcoe and Cascade hops. The hops bring a big fruited pineapple and grapefruit hop character to the beer, and at 35 IBUs, the brew is neither bitter nor harsh on drinkers’ palates. At 6.8% ABV, the unfiltered IPA is a mouth-watering refresher with a smooth, clean finish that leaves drinkers wanting another sip.

Compared to West Coast IPAs, which are known for their prominent hop bitterness and light, dry mouthfeel, New England IPAs generally have a juicy and luscious flavor along with a hazy appearance and are best enjoyed fresh.

 

Jim Koch, Sam Adams Founder & Brewer, on New England IPA:

“New England IPAs originated in our backyard, but there are still plenty of drinkers across the country who haven’t had a chance to try this unique style yet. Our brewers worked for more than a year to develop a brew with a distinctive set of flavor characteristics that involve unusual and novel brewing practices to give our version of a New England IPA its hazy, juicy and smooth character. We can’t wait for drinkers to try it for themselves and see what the haze craze is all about!”

New England IPA Availability:

Previously only available on draft at the Samuel Adams Boston Brewery and at select bars and restaurants in the Boston area, New England IPA is now available nationwide on draft. Beginning in April, New England IPA will also be available in four-pack 16 oz. cans for a suggested retail price of $8.99 – $9.99. Prices vary by market.

Hennessy × Miguel Cotto

The Six-Time Champion and Future Hall of Fame Boxer Recognized for His Success in the Ring and Philanthropy Outside the Ring

Hennessy, the world’s best-selling Cognac, honored six-time championship boxer and philanthropist Miguel Cotto, as the recipient of the 14th annual V.S.O.P Privilège Award. The Privilège Award recognizes Cotto’s mastery in the boxing ring, which has spanned more than 15 years – as well as his contributions and dedication to empowering the Latino community and his home of Puerto Rico.

Now in its 14th year, the Hennessy V.S.O.P Privilège Award is bestowed to individuals who are not only masters at their craft, but have achieved unparalleled levels of accomplishment and use that success to inspire and give back to their community through leadership, service and mentorship.

Cotto, who recently retired after one of the most storied careers in modern boxing, began his professional fighting in 2001 and has since risen above every obstacle, injury and adversary to leave an indelible mark on the sport – with a 41-6-0 record and winning championship belts in four weight classes. In addition to his showmanship in the ring – Cotto has shown just as much passion outside of the ring, empowering Latinos through his Fundacion El Angel de Miguel Cotto charity – where most recently he’s spent his efforts in helping the Hurricane Maria recovery across the island of his home of Puerto Rico.

“It is a true honor to be presented with the Hennessy V.S.O.P Privilège Award,” said Cotto. “Like Hennessy, I am dedicated to empowering future generations, and being recognized for these efforts is both humbling and inspiring.”

During the evening, Hennessy also announced its donation, on behalf of Miguel Cotto, to the Hispanic Federation to help support his continued efforts to rebuild and bring relief to Puerto Rico, and to the Fundacion El Angel de Miguel Cotto to support the boxer’s ongoing community efforts.

New Brew from Peru

7-Eleven® Sustains Push for Single Origin, Rainforest Alliance Certified™ Coffees

For its next exclusive single-origin coffee, 7-Eleven, Inc. headed south to the Cajamarca region of Peru. As with its other single-origin, sustainably sourced coffee, the new brew from Peru is Rainforest Alliance Certified.

Made with 100 percent Arabica beans, the newest 7-Eleven® single-origin coffee has bright citrus notes complimented by vanilla, cinnamon and berry undertones. To ensure the best quality and freshest taste, the Cajamarca region was selected, in part, for its prime harvest season between August and October. The hand-picked beans were grown in the region high in the Andes Mountains of Peru, known for its small family farms and artisanal farming methods. After harvesting, the fresh crop was authentically roasted to a medium level for a smooth rich taste. Peru is the eighth largest coffee producer in the world and one of the leading growers of certified coffees.

“Todays’ coffee-drinkers are more sophisticated and, in addition to wanting a great-tasting cup of coffee, many also are looking for something extra,” said Raj Kapoor, 7-Eleven senior vice president of fresh food and proprietary beverages. “Millennials, in particular, want coffee crops that are sustainably grown, sourced directly from small farms, and made from single-origin beans rather than blends. Peruvian coffee is one that fits all those criteria, and Cajamarca is considered one of the best coffee-growing regions in the country.”

Many of Peru’s coffee farms are in the foothills of the Andes with processing mills on the Pacific side of the range. The Cajamarca region is in the highlands of the Andes in the northern portion of the country.

This is the third limited-time, single-origin coffee offered at 7-Eleven, the fourth largest coffee retailer in the U.S. The others were from Matagalpa, Nicaragua, and Chiapas, Mexico. Available year-round, the retailer’s popular 100 percent Colombian coffee is now made with Rainforest Alliance Certified single-origin beans.

The Rainforest Alliance is an international nonprofit organization that seeks to conserve biodiversity and ensure sustainable livelihoods. Carrying the Rainforest Alliance Certified seal with the little green frog means the 100 percent Arabica beans for 7-Eleven stores’ new coffee are sourced from coffee-growers whose farms are required to meet strict standards designed to protect the environment, conserve wildlife and promote the well-being of local communities.

7-Eleven is working with Conservation International (CI) to set measurable corporate social responsibility (CSR) goals to reduce its environmental footprint. 7-Eleven’s CSR mission has three focus areas – planet, products and people. The retailer is a member of CI’s Business and Sustainability Council, a forum for corporate leaders taking positive environmental actions in their businesses, to explore mutually beneficial ways to further reduce its environmental impact.

As part of its CSR objectives, 7-Eleven will continue to seek out responsibly sourced coffees and other products and packaging with less environmental impact.

Like all its proprietary beverages sold in a cup, the new single-origin coffee qualifies for 7Rewards®, 7-Eleven’s customer loyalty program. Through its mobile app, 7Rewards customers earn a free any-size drink after the purchase of six drink purchases. The 7-Eleven app is available for download in Google Play and the App store.

Peru single-origin coffee from Cajamarca is available for a limited time at participating 7-Eleven stores.

Glenlivet 12 YO

The delicate and complex character of the 12 Year Old derives from the height and width of stills at The Glenlivet Distillery. This expression is matured in a mixture of cask types, including American and European Oak. Maturation in American oak imparts vanilla notes and gives the whisky its distinct smoothness.

$52.99

Glenlivet 15 YO

The 15 Year Old’s distinctive character is the result of selective maturation; a proportion of the spirit is matured in a selection of French Oak casks for a limited period, so as not to overpower the final result. The Glenlivet’s low density allows the spirit to penetrate deep into the wood, imparting the expression’s distinctive spiciness. The French Oak also increases the intensity of the whisky, resulting in a richer and creamier finish.

$57.99

Glenlivet 18 YO


 


The rich palate of the 18 Year Old is the result of a combination of several different cask types. This complex expression, with American and European Oak, first and second fill, all play their parts. European Oak imparts spicy hints and brings additional complexity. The first-fill American Oak adds tropical fruitiness.
$89.99

The modern blend of Chivas Regal Ultis represents the style and diversity of Speyside and its character which is at the heart of Chivas Regal. Chivas Regal Ultis raises a glass to the five generations of Master Blenders and honors their dedication and blending expertise. Their five signature Malts unite to embody the mix of modern and classic luxury, which ultimately makes Chivas Regal Ultis so distinct.

Guinness 200th Anniversary × NYC

CHEERS TO TWO HUNDRED YEARS: THE STORY OF GUINNESS IN AMERICA

Iconic Irish Brewer to Release Limited Time Brew for the U.S. and Host Celebrations On Its East and West Coasts for 200th Anniversary 



The story begins on October 16th, 1817 with a single line in a brewer’s log. The handwritten note reveals the first eight barrels of Guinness beer – a porter to be exact – meant for America would make their arrival in South Carolina. Ever since then, the bond between America and Ireland has continued to grow, from Irish immigrants searching for a better life to  community leaders to, of course, Guinness and the countless pints – shared responsibly – with the people of the United States. 

The anniversary this fall is a celebration of a 200-year love affair between a brewery and a people: Guinness and America. There’s no better time than now for the Guinness brand to say thank you to America by introducing the limited-edition Guinness 200th Anniversary Export Stout; bringing back a few favorite stout releases for a festive variety pack; and hosting a pair of public events in New York City and Los Angeles. 

“Two things have always been at the heart of the Guinness brand since our founding in 1759: brewing great beer and sharing our story,” said Emma Giles, Guinness Brand Director. “When we started brewingbeer for America 200 years ago, that story became a shared one. Now, every time you share a pint with someone else, another chapter begins.”

Guinness 200th Anniversary Export Stout is the latest beer created by the Open Gate Brewery – the pilot brewery located at St. James’s Gate in Dublin – where Guinness brewers experiment with new styles and reinterpret historical brews. Inspired by a recipe Benjamin Guinness – the son of Arthur Guinness – originally developed in 1817, this beer is brewed with Black Patent Malt and Golding Hops and has a 6% ABV. 

“We took a look at that export stout’s recipe from 1817 in our brewing records and used that as our inspiration here, but it’s not just an homage to who we were as brewers then or who America was as a country,” said Peter Simpson, Head Brewer at the Open Gate Brewery in Dublin. “We’re also using this beer as a way to show how much we’re looking forward to the next 200 years. We knew it had to be special, and we really think this throwback recipe captures exactly what we wanted from 1817 all the
way through 2017.” 

This October, Guinness will also release its newest limited-edition Guinness Draught cans, featuring artwork from the legendary Guinness ads from the 1930s and the 1950s that featured various zoo animals. Previous limited edition cans have featured the much-loved Guinness toucan and tortoise, among other works.  

The 200 Years of Stout in America Mixed Pack – also on its way from Guinness – will bring back a few favorite stout recipes to add to the festivities. The full list of celebratory releases includes:

  • Guinness 200th Anniversary Export Stout – A deep, dark, authentic export stout with smooth,
    rich flavor; brewed with Black Patent Malt. (MSRP: $8.99, 6-pack) 
  • Guinness Limited-Edition Mount Rushmore Cans – Classic Guinness Draught stout in limited- edition cans depicting everyone’s favorite toucans flying across the iconic American monument
    of Mount Rushmore from a rarely seen Guinness ad from the 1950s. (MSRP: $8.99, 8-pack) 
  • Guinness 200 Years of Stout in America Mixed Pack – A collection of brews in honor of America’s love of stouts – Guinness Original, 200th Anniversary Export Stout, Antwerpen Stout
    and Foreign Extra Stout – all of which have been exported to the U.S. over the past 200 years. (MSRP: $21.99, 12-pack) 

Along with Guinness 200th Anniversary Export Stout, these brews will be available in stores nationwide, as well as at 200th anniversary celebrations held in New York and Los Angeles this October. Guinness fans of legal drinking age in New York can sign up to attend here: Guinness Open Gate Public House

While the past 200 years are the reason for celebration, the next 200 years have even more possibility. The newest chapter in this Irish-American story will be set in Maryland, where the first Guinness brewery on U.S. soil in more than 60 years will open in 2018. The brewery’s name, the Open Gate Brewery & Barrel House, is a combination of the pilot brewery at St. James’s Gate and a nod to the plan for this new brewery to be a center for barrel-aging beer. The new home for Guinness in the U.S. will also be the permanent brewing site for Guinness Blonde American Lager and other new beers created
specifically for the states. 

Whether you’re celebrating the 200th anniversary of Guinness in the U.S. or toasting to the next 200 years, please remember to drink responsibly.
