Drink of the Week: Infinium Ale

Today’s Drink of the Week had us at first sip. And by the second, we were so excited we couldn’t wait until its November 29 release date to share it with you. A two-year collaborative effort between Samuel Adams and Germany’s Weihenstephan Brewery, Infinium Ale strictly follows Reinheitsgebot, or the ancient German brewing law that states beer can only be crafted from water, malts, hops and yeast. It’s simultaneously creamy and effervescent, and each sip offers another layer of flavor ranging from honey-sweetened lemonade to tangy apple cider, all while somehow masking its 10.3 percent ABV. It’ll be delicious served alongside the flavors of the winter season, like squash soups and roasted meats, and will also make a great gift for the beer geeks in your life. Look for it on shelves across the country beginning November 29. $20/750 ml.
