Samuel Adams

Samuel Adams (1722-1803) was an organizer of Boston’s Sons of Liberty, Adams conceived of the Boston Committee of Correspondence and coordinated Boston’s resistance to the Tea Act, which climaxed in the famous Tea Party. He represented Massachusetts in the Continental Congress from 1774 through 1781, and was elected to the Massachusetts convention on the ratification of the Constitution in 1787. After serving as John Hancock’s lieutenant from 1789 to 1793, Adams took over as governor before retiring in 1797.

More than two centuries after the Sons of Liberty, led by Samuel Adams, sparked a political revolution, another Bostonian attempted to launch a revolution of his own; this time in the brewing industry. On Patriots’ Day 1985, as the opening battles of the American Revolution at Lexington and Concord were being re-enacted, , Boston Beer Company Founder Jim Koch introduced his new craft beer at about 35 bars and restaurants in Boston. Koch, a sixth-generation brewer, used the same family recipe developed by his great-great grandfather in the 1860s to brew Louis Koch Lager in St. Louis, Missouri. . But rather than reviving the family name on the brew, Koch instead chose to name his beer after his favorite revolutionary patriot —and brewer—Samuel Adams.
