Spirit of Boston: Merry Maker
The Evolution of Beer ™
Spirit of Boston varieties are award-winning expressions distilled from finished Samuel Adams beer varieties. Inspired by the treasured connection between Boston Harbor Distillery and Boston Beer Company, this 84 proof spirit stretches the imagination of what beer is and how it’s enjoyed.
The distillation process concentrates and amplifies the delicate flavors of each grain, spice & hop used to make the beer. Twice distilled and laid to rest in used barrels so the wood flavors do not overwhelm the subtle nuances of each variety. Bottled at 84 proof, the year Boston Beer Co was founded.
