Need help finding Samuel Adams Specialty Brews

  • 8

I was hoping someone could give me some insight into somewhere in the DC/NOVA area I could find the Sam Adams limited edition specialty brews? I dont mean the winter sampler pack and the seasonal brews and all those, I mean the chocolate bach and the ones that are up near 100$ dollars a bottle. I've tried contacting Sam Adams through their website, and I've called a few local distributors with no luck. Thanks for the help.

  1. Chevy Chase Wine & Liquor on Conn. Ave. might be able to help. They have a ton of different beers from all over. At the very least they might be able to direct you somewhere.

    1. Those beers don't show up often. The best thing would probably be to establish a relationship with a good shop and let them know you're interested.

      1. try Blanchard's Liquors in Allston MA; they might be able to ship?

        1. There's an ABC store out in the same shopping center as Blue Ocean (an excellent Japanese place in its own right) - I think I've seen those beers there.

          The address for Blue Ocean is 9440 Main Street, at Pickett Road, Fairfax, VA, 703-425-7555

            I wasn't aware they sold beer at ABC stores.

            1. You just missed a tasting of Sam Adams specialty/seasonal brews at The Wine Specialist this past Thurs, 12/7.
              They might have some of the expensive limited editions, have the contacts to get them or know who will. 202-833-0707.
              They have a lot of tasting events - wine and beer. 2115 M Street, NW. Some other beer events coming up.

              Some of the other good liquor stores in Washington might have what you want. Chevy Chase, Bassins, Calvert Woodley, Schneider's, Paul's, Van Ness, Burka's, Pearson's and other's.

              1. I saw the choc. bock at aspen hill beer and wine last year at this time. And I saw Utopias at the leisure world county store around the same time
