Back for its seventh year, Samuel Adams is serving a Boston Marathon beer in New England in partnership with the Boston Athletic Association.

Known as Boston 26.2 Brew, the gose style ale pays tribute to the Boston Marathon, the oldest marathon in the world. “Soft wheat and citrus character are contrasted with hints of salt and coriander and it finishes clean with soft fruit and crisp citrus notes,” the brewery describes the 26.2 Brew, which is 4.5 per cent alcohol and 15 IBUs.

Samuel Adams, the flagship beer of the Boston Beer Company, is the official beer sponsor of the 122nd Boston Marathon, scheduled for April 16.

“With a lighter body and lower alcohol level (4.5% ABV), this beer is fitting for both runners and race fans alike,” the brewery says.

The beer is available at limited locations in New England.
