Top 10 biggest US craft brewers of 2018

2. Boston Beer Co – Boston, MA

Flagship brand: Samuel Adams Boston Lager

A landmark of the US beer industry, the Boston Beer Co. is responsible for one of the country’s biggest beer brands – Samuel Adams – to which the vast majority of its volume is attributed.

The company was founded in 1984 by Jim Koch, upon discovering his great-great grandfather’s recipe for Louis Koch Lager, in his father’s attic, which evolved into Samuel Adams Boston Lager. The rest, as they say, is history.
