So my husband went to Home Depot this weekend and like any good Samuel Adams drinker, he was wearing his “Just Brew It” t-shirt.
The woman who helped him complimented him on his shirt and asked whether he works at Sam Adams. He said, “no, but my wife works closely with them on their philanthropy program.”
She said: “Oh, Brewing the American Dream?”
He said: “Yeah, do you know it?”
She said: “Yes, I have always had a dream of owning my own business. I am working on a loan application to open a meadery [ a winery that produces honey wines or meads] in Waltham, MA. I’m from Brazil where they are very popular. Brewing the American Dream is quite a program!”
It seems that ambitious and inspired entrepreneurs are everywhere. It is very cool that this program has generated buzz among entrepreneurs. I hope she gets a loan and builds her business!
