Craft beer enthusiasts, this one’s for you.

Sam Adams made more than 60 styles of beer just last year alone, but some of them have been placed in “the vault.”

“We’ve been brewing boundary-pushing beers for over 30 years,” said Samuel Adams founder and brewer Jim Koch. “But with innovation comes the inevitability of having to tuck away recipes. We hear from our drinkers nearly every day asking us to re-release their favorites.”

From May 11 until May 25, Sam Adams will put 16 vault beers up for eligibility to be put back on the shelves, but only two will prevail.

The two that are chosen will be nationally distributed in early 2016.


It’s up to you which ones they bring back.

The contest starts with a round of online voting, which ends May 25. Then four finalists will be brewed and poured at the Boston Brewery and select beer festivals through July and August.

During those summer events and through a second round of online voting, fans will be able to choose two of the four to be re-released in January 2016 as a part of the Samuel Adams Variety Pack.
