Brewing the American Dream Gains National Attention

by Mark Feldman

Today is Patriot’s Day in New England, a perfect day to celebrate news that another revolution is storming the country.

We are thrilled to share that the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and New York Magazine, among others have been spreading the word about the expansion of the Samuel Adams Brewing the American Dream Program. This philanthropic initiative provides small food, beverage, and hospitality businesses with micro-loans, access to business coaching, and opportunities to showcase their products.

This month the program formally expanded its Loan Fund from five New England states to small brewers nation-wide, and to food and beverage and hospitality entrepreneurs in Ohio, Greater Lehigh Valley PA, and the five boroughs of New York City.

Equally exciting, for 26 weeks Red Sox TV, New England Sports Network (NESN), will be profiling a small business owner served through the program during its pre-game show. Watch the first segment where Boston Beer Company Founder Jim Koch describes his personal journey and his passion for the program.

Today, as I watch thousands of Boston Marathon runners retrace the route of Paul Revere’s famous ride; I am inspired by what’s possible.

Happy Patriots Day!
