Sam Adams Brewing Special Boston Marathon Beer

BOSTON (CBS) – Any marathon runners looking for extra “hops” in their step this year?

Sam Adams is brewing up a special Boston Marathon beer.

The brewery is teaming up with the Boston Athletic Association for the first time.

The beer, called the “Boston 26.2 Brew,” will be available at events leading up to the marathon. It will also be served at some pubs and restaurants along the route and around Boston on Marathon Day.

“The unique brew will have a slightly lower alcohol level and lighter body than many of the beers in the Samuel Adams roster, making it appealing to both runners and spectators,” a press release said.

The 26.2-mile-long race will be held on Monday, April 16.
