Samuel Adams® Brewing
The American Dream
This month, we feature Linda DeMarco, one of our recent Samuel Adams® Brewing the American Dream program beneficiaries. Linda’s company Boston Pretzel needed a new oven to keep up with the growing demand at her retail location in Boston’s historic Faneuil Hall.
Linda’s specialty is a fresh baked sesame & salt pretzel, which you’ll notice is missing the center opening…turn them on their side and you’ve got a "B" for Boston! What could go better with a Boston Pretzel than a Samuel Adams Boston Lager®, right Linda?

Thanks to all who attended last month’s American Home Brewer’s Rally.
More than 100 local home brewers joined us at the Brewery for the 2011 AHA Rally for some delicious food from our friends at Northeast Cafe and some great beers. Of course the favorite beer that evening was our special Patriot Homebrew winning beer. Jim Prucha’s Baltic Porter got high marks from his home brewing peers…high praise indeed!
Boston Brewery Open House
As the summer comes to a close, we are ending the season with a grand celebration that will launch into the Fall; the season of Beer Festivals. This Open House we will have our very own OctoberFest. We begin with a Bavarian Band that will serenade us through the evening. You can tantalize your pallets with the delicious appetizers from Karl’s Sausage Kitchen and Boston Pretzel. But what would an OctoberFest be without the beer? We will have Samuel Adams Octoberfest on draft along with one other specialty brew so you can prost all night long!
In the spirit of OctoberFest, we will host a stein hoisting contest. Anyone who wishes to participate must arrive by 6:00 to sign up. (Please note this contest is limited on participants and entry slots may fill up before 6:00). The stein hoisting contest will begin at 6:30. We will have one Frauen (female) and one Männlich (male) winner.
Karl’s Sausage Kitchen & European Market (http://www.karlssausage.com/) has been around since 1958 and has been delivering their old world recipes for 53 years. Like us, they use the finest ingredients and spices to create their authentic European Sausage just like you would find in Germany. Karl’s Sausage is also a recipient of our very own philanthropic program Samuel Adams Brewing the American Dream.
Brewing the American Dream stems from the core of who we are as a company and the dream that Jim Koch had in 1984 when he decide to start The Boston Beer Company on a shoestring. Despite the obstacles, he followed his dream and today, Samuel Adams is the most award winning brewery in the world. Jim wanted to begin a program that could help others to achieve their dreams.
