•Boston Beer’s Samuel Adams brand has released Escape Route, a new limited edition spring seasonal. Billed as a Kölsch-style, 5%-abv brew, Escape Route is made with an “untraditional” yeast strain, which ferments at ale-like temperatures, but is then cold-conditioned like a lager, resulting in a blend of honey, floral, grapefruit and herbal hop notes. The hybrid entry is currently available nationwide, priced at $7.99-$9.99 a six-pack. Escape Route is also available as part of the Samuel Adams Spring Brews variety 12-pack, which retails for $14.99-$17.99.
