…Boston Beer Co. / Samuel Adams now has an official page of sorts up for its Infinium collaboration with Weihenstephan (you may be asked to cross the age barrier of death a couple times before getting there). There is one short video up on the project and three more will be released over the next month. A Washington Post report from late last month says that the beer will hit shelves in the U.S. in late November. That date seems to fit with the dates that the videos will be released on the website. It will be released in Germany in mid-November.
