Samuel Adams Celebrates Cincinnati Tri-State Area With New 513 Beer

Cincinnati holds a special place in the heart of Samuel Adams. Not only is it the hometown of Sam Adams founder and brewer Jim Koch, but in the 1940’s Jim’s father apprenticed at the Hudepohl brewery in Cincinnati, which Sam Adams purchased in 1997. Since then many of America’s favorite beers have been brewed at the Sam Adams brewery, which is the largest local brewery located in Over the Rhine – employing over one hundred people.
To celebrate Cincinnati’s importance to Sam Adams, the men and women who live and work in the Tri-State area and at the brewery, Sam Adams is releasing the first-ever Cincinnati-inspired American Lager aptly named Samuel Adams 513.
The final official 513 recipe was decided upon by Cincinnatians themselves. At last year’s Zinzinnati Oktoberfest, drinkers had the chance to sample three Cincinnati-brewed beers and voted on their favorite style. The Sam Adams brewers heard local residents’ voices (and palates) loud and clear that day and went on to brew the crowd favorite lager recipe that is now known as 513.
