Sam Adams Event

@CrazyKegs and I heard about a Sam Adams Event that wasn’t too far from us. Well, we heard about the event because @CheersSJ let us know it was happening. He’s good like that.

I asked @PinkPirateNinja if she wanted to go to dinner with @CrazyKegs and his wife. She asked what the reason was we were actually going for, she’s smart like that, so I let her know it was a Sam Adams event. She claimed victory for knowing we had an ulterior motive, but whatever, we get to drink some beer.

This particular event was held at Kid Rip’s Tap & Tavern, in Runnemede, NJ.
None of us had ever been there before, but after walking in, it seemed like a pretty chill spot to grab a few beers.
We each started the night off with a flight of Sam beer.
From left to right: Porch Rocker, Summer Ale, Got to Gose, New World

Porch Rocker: I’ve had Porch Rocker quite a few times before. It’s a nice Spring/Summer kinda brew. Not too strong, goes down easy, and there’s a nice taste going on with this beer.
The Straight Hops: 3 out of 5 Kegs

Summer Ale: This is another tasty, easy drinking Summer beer from Sam Adams. Again, this one’s not too heavy on the ABV, so go ahead and kick back a few.

Got to Gose: This brew is actually kind of refreshing. It’s only 4.8%, so if you’re hanging outside on a Summer day, this is definitely a beer you should have with you.
It’s nice and light, goes down smooth, and is pretty tasty at that.

New World: This beer was the wildcard, as it was the only one in the flight I hadn’t tried before. It’s a 10% tripel, so I was expecting to be hit with the alcohol taste at first sip. I wasn’t. New World is surprisingly smooth as far as tripels go, with some spice thrown in for your pleasure!

All in all, we had a fun time at Kid Rip’s.
I ordered a Porch Rocker after the flight to go with their delicious “Jersey Burger”.
Then, for dessert, I figured I’d treat myself and have a New World…

The story doesn’t end there though, as some shenanigans were pulled as we were leaving, but you’ll have to ask @CheersSJ about that. It’s his story to tell…
Seriously, you should totally ask him!
