Russ Brunner’s American Stout, Samuel Adams, Boston, US
Evan Benn, writing in The Miami Herald, recommended this “chocolatey” American stout, devised by home brewer Russ Brunner.
He said: “Tamarac homebrewer Russ Brunner’s stout recipe beat more than 1,000 contenders in the Boston Beer Co.’s annual Samuel Adams LongShot contest. That earned Russ’ rich, chocolatey beer a spot in the new LongShot variety pack, which also includes an India pale ale with pineapple and a smoked wheat beer.
‘Pairing: Brunner’s American Stout has an earthy, piney note from its hops that pairs nicely with rosemary. Try it with a roasted chicken club sandwich with rosemary aioli.”
