With his great-great grandfather Louis Koch’s beer recipe in hand, Jim brewed the very first batch of Samuel Adams Boston Lager in his kitchen. When it was introduced in 1984, Samuel Adams Boston Lager was a complex and full-bodied craft beer in a world of thin, light-bodied mass marketed beers. After more than 30 years, this beer is still our favorite and sets the standard for all of our brews.Learn More
