About Us

Our Story

Our passion for never settling, and brewing quality, flavorful beers started with our founder, Jim Koch. He brewed the first batch of Boston Lager in his kitchen – a recipe that belonged to his great great grandfather that he found in his father’s attic back in the early 1980’s.

Jim had a belief: that beer drinkers deserved a better American beer option than what was available at the time.

Independent. American. Craft.

Striving to Become Better

Every Single Day.

But, even though we grew, we continue to be an independent craft brewery that’s committed to brewing only the best-crafted beers for our drinkers.

At our Boston Brewery, we’re still trying new things every day; some good, and, well, some not-so good. We learn from the process, and never give up on the journey towards the next tasty beer. It’s our commitment to you that keeps us innovative, inspired, and striving to become better every single day.

Lets just say we’ve come a long way since that first batch in the kitchen.
