Default Samuel Adams Long Shot '08

I just picked up a pack of the '08 Long Shot pack at the liquor store. I have Tasty's Pliny clone chilling quickly right now. Can't wait to try it. I'm pretty excited about the bock too. I'm assuming the cranberry wit is going to be as much crap as all of their other fruited beer.

Anyone else picked it up yet?

Sipping Tasty's IIPA right now. This thing is beautiful.

"Can you brew it" should cover this one. They wouldn't even have to do an interview!

The Bock is nice too. Rich and malty, yet very drinkable. I haven't had too many Bocks to compare this to, but I like the beer.

I'm dreading the Cranberry Wit...It may take a few pints of HB to work up the courage.

It has already been covered as their Imperial IPA show.

Here is the recipe:

Yea, I'm an idiot. I listened to that show last week.


Drinking the Cranberry Wit now. Not a big fan. Its wit bier...ish. The cranberry adds a cloying sweetness to the end. As much as SA is pushing it, I don't think cranberry and beer are meant to go together.

I picked up two sixpacks myself and did the Traditional Bock followed by the Imperial IPA. Both are excellent brews, McDoles IIPA is way better than the two times I've had Pliny the Elder in bottle.
