In addition to her Q&A about Sam Adams, its new beers and brewing in general, the brewery's beverage manager, Jennifer Glanville, shared a Samuel Adams Summer Ale Sangria — or “Samgria” — recipe that can be made at home with the summer beer.  This cocktail uses Sam Adams' Summer Ale, which is celebrating its 21st birthday this summer. The beer is an American wheat ale that balances bright, citrusy noble hops and peppery spice.  "It’s one of our most highly anticipated annual releases and definitely one of my favorite beers we brew," Glanville says.
