Red Sox Are Getting Damage Done With Their Own Beer This Week
The world champions are hoping the only real damage done will be in sales.
According to Boston.com, Tomorrow at 5 p.m., the Jamaica Plain brewery will release Damage Done Double IPA, an ode to the team that got it done in five games.
It's going to be a "sipping beer." According to a Samuel Adams press release, the double New England IPA, which comes in at a solid 7.3% ABV, is “aged on vanilla beans with guava, mango and lactose added for as much fun and flavor as the Sox themselves.”
The brew has been in the works for a while. The brewery told Boston.com in a statement “As the official beer of the Red Sox, the best way we could think to cheer on our team throughout the season was to shout at the TV with a beer in hand.” “When the team kept winning, of course we were hopeful for a championship win, but didn’t wanted to jinx it! In anticipation of the post-season, we decided to brew a Double New England IPA to commemorate the team in hopes we’d make it all the way."
Damage Done will be available at the brewery both on tap and in crowlers for $16 until the end of the week. The brewery is located at 30 Germania St. There will also be other collectables on sale.
