Win a selection of Samuel Adams merchandise and memorabilia
One of the most influential breweries in America’s craft beer movement...
When your country’s most prestigious beer festival awards you the ‘Best Beer in America’ accolade, just six weeks after you open your brewery, you can be forgiven for assuming that you are onto something special, something revolutionary and something which is going to change people’s taste expectations.
Well, Jim Koch achieved just that with Samuel Adams Boston Lager. Against a chorus of ‘Are you crazy?’, from family members, Jim decided that the Harvard degrees in business and law and the lucrative business consulting career on which he had embarked could not replace the inherent desire to brew. I say inherent as Jim comes from of America’s most-awarded and respected breweries and a key catalyst in the resurgence in American craft brewing.
Visitors to Wetherspoon’s beer festival (27/10– 14/11) will be able to enjoy the brewing skills of one of Jim’s prodigies: Bert Boyce, brewing manager at Jim’s original brewery in the Jamaican Plain area of Boston and the location where Jim’s team members try out new recipes, new styles and push the boundaries of their craft.
Closes 19th November 2010
