Sunday Night Suds - Samuel Adams Downtime Pilsner

This week's Sunday Night Suds looks at Samuel Adams Downtime Pilsner.

Lately its been hard to keep track of which Samuel Adams beers are certified kosher by the Star-K and which are not. Often the LOC (letter of certification) on the Star-K website will not be updated as frequently as Sam Adams produces new seasonal versions.

This of course leaves the kosher consumer in a quandary. Either purchase a sealed box of the latest new Samuel Adams brews, or harass the Star-K until you can get a sneak peak at the updated list.

But there is another way - visit a bottle shop or supermarket which allows you to mix your own sixpack. And that's how I found out that the Downtime Pilsner has a Star-K on the label.

The Downtime Pilsner has some unexpected hoppiness for a Pilsner. The beer poured a darker yellow than I expected with nice lacing which lasted for quite a bit of time. The beer had decent carbonation which also lasted longer than expected.

I would pair this brew with grilled chicken or other smoky chicken dish.

The Samuel Adams Downtime Pilsner is under the Kosher Supervision of the Star-K and has a Star-K certification mark on the label. To see what the experts on Beer Advocate think about this brew, please follow this link -

As always, please remember to drink responsibly and to never waste good beer unless there is no designated driver. If you've tried this beer or any others which have been reviewed on the kosher beers site, please feel free to post your comments (anonymous comments are acceptable).
