Today is National Lobster Day and to celebrate, Chef David Burke has created a Samuel Adams Summer Ale-Infused Lobster Roll for Red Hook. They will only sell the Summer Ale-infused lobster roll today.
The first 50 visitors to reach the Red Hook Lobster Pound trucks and reference, “Sam Adams!” will receive a free roll. The first person on the scene will also receive a Samuel Adams prize pack of summer goodies.
But for those unable to make it, here’s a recipe for their mouth-watering roll.
