BOSTON -- A new limited-time variety 12-pack from Boston Beer will bring together beers from six different brewers to provide convenience to craft-beer fans looking to try something new.
To celebrate the independent and entrepreneurial spirit of the craft-beer industry, Samuel Adams has collaborated with five different breweries across the country to create the Brewing the American Dream Collaboration Pack.
This 12-pack features brewers who are part of Samuel Adams Brewing the American Dream philanthropic program. Nearly a decade ago, Sam Adams created Brewing the American Dream to provide loans and coaching to craft brewers and small business owners pursuing their passions and the American Dream of starting their own business. All profits from this collaboration pack will be donated to nonprofit program partner and small business lender Accion to support loans to food and beverage entrepreneurs nationwide, according to the brewer.
The pack’s five brewers are:
- Roc Brewing Co., Rochester, N.Y.
- Bosque Brewing, Albuquerque, N.M.
- ChuckAlek Independent Brewers, Ramona, Calif.
- Woods Beer Co., San Francisco
- Brewery Rickoli, Wheat Ridge, Colo.
All five have participated in the Brewing the American Dream program and received a loan to kick start or grow their craft breweries. And most have participated in the Brewing and Business Experienceship, receiving individual coaching from the team at Sam Adams.
“This pack represents the independent spirit, passion and collaboration that is core to our craft-beer industry,” said Sam Adams founder and brewer Jim Koch. “We’re proud to have collaborated with these creative and passionate brewers in a way that allows us to continue to pay it forward and empower fellow independent craft brewers to be successful and to grow.”
The pack, which contains five unique collaboration beers and Sam Adams’ flagship Boston Lager, hits stores nationally in late July for a suggested retail price of $16.99 to $19.99.
