About Us

Cincinnati Roots 

In 1997, Jim purchased the Hudepolh-Schoenling brewery on Central Parkway, Cincinnati, where many generations of Koch brewers had worked. The Samuel Adams Cincinnati Brewery has become our main production brewery for Samuel Adams beers.

The Story of Boston Lager Begins Here In Cincinnati

Jim Koch, a Cincinnati native, approached his father about his idea to create a uniquely American beer that would take on the stale imports being shipped to America. Jim's father gave him the family recipe for the beer that became Boston Lager. Jim brewed this beer on his kitchen stovetop in 1984 and launched what became the American craft beer revolution.

Come in and have a pint!

We're still brewing here and with the opening of the taproom in November of 2018, we have a way to brew small batch, experimental beers that sit well alongside favorites like Boston Lager, Octoberfest, and Wicked Easy.

Our Commitment to You

There’s a spot at the bar for everyone at Sam Adams. We’re dedicated to creating a welcoming and safe environment for our coworkers, guests, and partners - free of discrimination and intimidation - where every single person is always treated with respect and dignity. For this reason, the following behaviors (including but not limited to) are 100% unacceptable: • Physical touch without consent  • Unwanted attention - staring, stalking, or trapping an individual  • Hate speech or attire  • Inappropriate, disruptive, or offensive behavior that crosses personal boundaries (unwanted nicknames, sexual remarks, remarks on physical appearance) We will ask any guest to leave if they cannot follow these guidelines. Behavior that repeatedly crosses personal boundaries of our coworkers or other guests has no place here. All who walk through our doors should feel safe, welcomed, and treated with respect. Yes, we put these rules on the wall, but we all play a part in creating this type of environment. Here’s to making this a welcome space for all.
