The Samuel Adams brewery — which, despite its Boston-centric reputation, has multiple ties to Cincinnati — is poised to introduce its newest regional draft, the first-ever Cincinnati-inspired “Samuel Adams 513.”

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.

The final recipe for Samuel Adams 513 was decided upon by Cincinnati-area attendees of last year’s Zinzinnati Oktoberfest, brewery officials said.
