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

For the first time ever, we completely reformulated a flagship beer.

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
The beers in our first ever Brewing the American Dream Variety Pack were brewed in collaboration with five rising-stars who participate in Brewing the American Dream.
