Remember – or imagine – what beer drinking was like in America in 1978, before the first Samuel Smith’s shipment arrived. There were about 85 breweries in the US and only one was a craft brewery. Imports were few, and almost all were pale lagers. Today, the American beer scene is the most dynamic on the planet.
Each year, we salute Samuel Smith with p chance to celebrate: the annual Samuel Smith Salute. Please join in: savour the benchmark beers from Samuel Smith’s, and recall the prominent role this iconic British brewery has played in the US craft beer revolution. Build a display at your store; add a new Sam Smith beer or cider to your menu; write about Sam Smith on your blog - and raise a glass with us: Samuel Smith - handcrafted ales & lagers - Brewed Since 1758 - Imported since 1978.
