The new beer will be available on draft year-round, exclusively in Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky, according to a Samuel Adams release. Sam Adams 513 has already made its debut in at least three locations in downtown Cincinnati, according to the Samuel Adams “Find-a-Sam” web site.
Cincinnati is the hometown of Samuel Adams’ iconic founder and brewer, Jim Koch. In 1997, Koch returned to his hometown and purchased the former Hudepohl-Schoenling where his own father apprenticed in the 1940s. That brewery, on Central Parkway near downtown Cincinnati, now brews many of Sam Adams’ beers.
