About Samuel Adams
In 1984, the beer landscape was vastly different from what it is today. Craft beers were virtually non-existent. Jim Koch believed it was time to change that and set out with his great-great grandfather’s recipe and homebrewed the first batch of Samuel Adams Boston Lager in his kitchen. Jim hand-delivered samples around Boston, and in April 1985, Samuel Adams Boston Lager made its debut in about 25 bars and restaurants in Boston, all while only having two employees. That same year, Boston Lager was awarded the Best Beer at the Great American Beer Festival, and has gone on to win more awards than any other brewery in the world. Samuel Adams is still independently owned today, and Jim still spends time at the brewery coming up with new recipes for beers.
