Featured Local Beers and Ciders

Notch PilsSamuel’s is thrilled to bring local area libations to our guests. Great beers from Notch are available as well as cider products from Bantam Cider.

Launched in 2010 by Chris Lohring, a professional brewer since 1993, Notch was the first brewing company in the US to focus exclusively on session beer, a low gravity, unfiltered and unpasteurized Pilsner, also known as “workers” or “tap” beer. Session beer has the unique quality of combined flavor with a low ABV “to extend the good times or, have one beer without needing a nap”.

Notch Session Pils
4.0% ABV
Notch Session Pils salutes the unfiltered pale lagers of the Czech Republic: crisp, herbal, and hoppy. Session beer is simply an option, like having a beer at lunch, when a bigger ABV beer is out of the question. Or having that second or third and keeping your wits about you.

Session Beer is bought in rounds with friends and served in big glasses. Where one leads to three, and the good times are extended without care. It fuels the conversation. It’s communal. It’s in for the long haul, because the times when we are drinking beer are some of the best times of all.

GLUTEN-FREE OPTIONS

For those of our guests seeking a gluten-free drink, Bantam Cider is an excellent option. Bantam Cider uses the best quality local fruit and ingredients and work from their cidery in Somerville, Massachusetts.  A small local company, they are committed to creating distinctive crafted cider using fresh pressed apples and high-quality, all-natural ingredients.

Wunderkind (pronounced Wonder-kid)
Bantam’s maiden voyage is named in honor of one of the greatest modern adventurers, Amelia Earhart. She was bold and courageous and never settled for anything less than achieving the extraordinary. It is her fearless spirit and sense of adventure that inspires our own quest. Wunderkind is bright and crisp and gently lingers on the palate.
