Sam Adams Third Voyage

This series of limited edition brews represents some of our favorite small batch creations. This double IPA is inspired by Capt. James Cook, an explorer and map maker who became famous sailing the globe.  Cook’s “Third Voyage” took place over the course over 3 years – 1776-1779.  This now infamous voyage was to discover the Northwest Passage, in which he was successful.  Cook was killed in an argument with Hawaiians during the voyage, on February 14th, 1779.  As a practice of honor at the time, Cook was disemboweled, baked and the bones removed as religious relics.  The beer however, has a slightly less morbid finish.

From the Brewer – This unique double IPA takes the style’s origins a step further.  IPAs were born out of making an ale that could sustain a long voyage.  For our take, we were inspired by the indomitable Capt. James Cook whose 3rd voyage made him the first to navigate a treacherous route from England to New Zealand to the Pacific Northwest . Using Cascade hops from each of these regions we created a brew that’s citrusy, earthy, and full of bold character.
