There are a ton of different beers out there that you might want to try but let’s face it, there are way too many out there and it would definitely save you a lot of time if you could try several at once. Well, this is what a sampler pack is for and almost all companies offer them at a reasonable price. What is a sampler pack exactly? How does it benefit you? Most importantly, how do you get it?
What is a Sampler Pack?
There are a few different types of sampler packs, but the most common contain full sized beers. Essentially you will find yourself buying a pack of regular beer, with the only difference being the variety of beers within the pack, all from the same brewery. Take for example Blue Moon, the Colorado based beer made famous in 1995. It offers a pack that contains all of their most popular beers and you can use this to determine which ones you like best. Then again, maybe you like them all and plan to continue buying the sampler pack rather than a dedicated pack, it’s up to you.
These sampler packs can be outstanding for parties, especially if you’re not sure what type of beer everyone attending your event – it can be a real hit. There are tons of packages available and they all have their own distinct flavor.
The next pack we’d like to point out is the holiday pack and nearly every company actually has one. A holiday pack contains drinks that are brewed or released during specific times of year such as Christmas, New Year’s, Halloween, etc. Sometimes these are actually different flavors and other times they simply sport a seasonal label – it really depends on the company and the brewery.
Smaller Sampler Sizes
If you don’t want to go for the full sized beers there are definitely other options available. Some sampler packs offer more beer choices in smaller bottles or cans so that you can sample as many as possible. These are especially available during holidays, so make sure you keep an eye out – you might just be surprised at what you find.
No matter what, sampler packs tend to be an outstanding choice and can be even better as gifts. There is a good chance that your local store is currently carrying a few and you’ll definitely have a wide variety of choices if you just look. Now would be a great time to stock up on your samplers and figure out which beer you want to have a long term relationship with.[Image Credit]
