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
As we look forward to the spring and escaping winter’s chill, our sights are set on our brand new Brewnited Variety Pack. The Brewnited Variety Pack marks the return of classic favorites Noble Pils and classic favorite Irish Red, and features new spring seasonals Hopscape and Fresh as Helles, and Ella Blank IPL, available only in this pack.
For the first time ever, we completely reformulated a flagship beer. After months of experimenting with dozens of trial batches in our nano brewery in Boston, Rebel IPA now has a juicy, tropical and citrus flavor supported by a leaner body and a crisp, clean finish to optimize the hop character (including two new experimental hop varieties).LEARN MORE
From our Rebel IPA to our brand new Rebel Grapefruit IPA, Pack of Rebels is a year-round variety pack created for any west coast IPA hop head. Pack of Rebels includes: Rebel IPA, Rebel Juiced IPA, Rebel Grapefruit IPA, and Rebel White Citra IPA (exclusive to the Pack of Rebels variety pack).
A Totally Different Experience. In Two Styles.
Experience the difference of a Nitro beer in two distinctive brews. Noted by a strikingly vigorous cascade and thick foam head, Nitro beers are known for their rich and smooth texture. With Nitro Project, we explored recipes that held the integrity of the style while being gassed with nitrogen. The result, in our humble opinion, is awesome.
We’re always experimenting and tinkering at Samuel Adams. Our Boston Brewery is the hub for our trials, errors, and, eventually, limited runs. It’s where our nano brewery and barrel room live, and where our brewers have free reign to play as they please. And once in a while, we release our favorites in limited batches so we can share the wealth.LEARN MORE
