President of Beers: #35

Samuel Adams Boston Lager, Boston, Massachusetts

We're drinking the flagship craft beer from every state in the Union, counting down from 50-1, to find which is home to the President of Beers.

#35: Samuel Adams Boston Lager, Boston, Massachusetts

State: Massachusetts where the Mayflower landed, tea was dumped, Redcoats were shot and Mitt Romney was governor.

Brewery: The mighty Boston Brewing Company, which is tied with Yuengling as the nation's largest craft brewer. Founded by the guy from the commercial and some other guys in 1984, they led the national craft brewing revolution

Beer: Samuel Adams Boston Lager, which you have probably tried once or twice before.

Difficulty of Obtaining in Oregon: Easy. It's everywhere. But if you want the best Sam Adams go someplace that has the special glass. (Do not make a glass that vaguely resembles the special Sam Adams glass or the company will sue you.)

Rating: 59.8
