TTB Find of the Week: More from Boston Beer

The Boston Beer Company appears to be set to roll out some new additions to their Brewmaster's Collection.

The TTB site has label submissions listed for a Dunkelweizen and something called Coastal Wheat, which is described as a Wheat Ale brewed with Lemon Peel. Interesting. I wonder if they are going to phase out some of the current Brewmaster's selections or if they are just going to keep adding to the arsenal of beers they already brew. If it's the former, I wouldn't mind seeing the mediocre Hefeweizen or Pale Ale get the axe, or even the new Blackberry Witbier, although I suspect it's still too new for them to consider eliminating it already. Actually, my first choice might be to eliminate the Cherry Wheat, but it's been a staple and a top seller for far too long for them to even consider it's demise, I would suspect.

Also listed by the TTB was the info for this year's Patriot Homebrew offering. The winner for the year's competition was an Oatmeal Stout, and will be available only on draft at Gillette Stadium, home of the New England Patriots and New England Revolution.
