So, I've never heard of this before, but apparently Boston Beer Company is letting the consumer's choose their next seasonal in their Beer Lover's Choice. Blackberry Witbier was the winner last year. I don't know what the other beer tasted like, but the Blackberry was only so-so. However, previous winners are some of my favorites (LOVE the Brown Ale):
2005 Brown Ale
2006 Honey Porter
2007 Irish Red
2008 Blackberry Witbier
This year it's between an ale (which I guess is different from the Boston Ale they already have) and a pilsner. There are tastings being hosted around the country to help decide on the 2009 beer. One more reason I wish I was back on the East Cost: no tastings in TX. Oh well...I don't care for pilsners anyway, so maybe it won't matter that I've been disenfranchised because I live in a state that doesn't value craft beer. My only solace is that CA, because of their own jacked up laws, won't be getting any tastings either.
