Enjoy Sail Boston with Two Cold Ones

Sail Boston partner Samuel Adams is saluting the Tall Ships with an official, limited-release beer to welcome the dozens of ships and their thirsty crew members who have sailed to Boston from around the world! Dubbed Samuel Adams Tall Ships Ale, the brew is a twist on the classic Belgian Witbier style using spices once considered exotic by sea-faring merchants and brewers alike. A limited run of Sail Boston bottles will be available for sale exclusively at the Samuel Adams Boston Brewery for $19.99 a bottle, on draft at limited bars and restaurants in Boston, and at select Sail Boston events.

Launching June 16, Tall Ships Ale will be available only during Sail Boston. To learn more about Samuel Adams Tall Ships Ale, visit

J.P. Licks has joined us in creating a Sail Boston-inspired flavor of ice cream! The Sail Boston Fresh Strawberry Rhubarb, along with a sundae of the same name (topping the ice cream with strawberries, graham cracker crumbles, and homemade whipped cream), is available for the month of June at all J.P. Licks locations.
