Samuel Adams has released a beer celebrating Cincinnati that will only
be available in the Tri-State.

Samuel Adams 513 is a classically dry-hopped American lager that
blends a malty backbone with bright hop notes. It has a biscuity aroma
and rich malt forward flavor that finishes with a citrusy note and
spicy bitterness.

Samuel Adams 513 is a new beer that will only be available in Greater
Cincinnati.

“Cincinnati has such an amazing, rich brewing history and culture, and
means a lot to me personally,” Samuel Adams founder and brewer Jim
Koch, a Cincinnati native, said in a statement. “It’s been 20 years
since we purchased our Cincinnati brewery and for those 20 years we’ve
brewed hundreds of great beers and have made them available for
drinkers across the country. It’s exciting that for the first time we
are releasing a beer just for the Cincinnati Tri-State area as a way
to pay homage to drinkers in my hometown.”

Sam Adams brewers used Warrior hops for the first time to create the
beer as a “tribute to the fighting spirit of Cincinnati’s men and
women.” The variety combines a smooth, bitter flavor with a mild,
herbal and pine aroma. The beer’s style was selected by Cincinnati
residents themselves during a taste test at Oktoberfest 2016.

A keg of Samuel Adams 513 will be tapped at Great American Ball Park
on Opening Day, April 3. It will be available at about 100 other
locations around town.

The beer’s tap handle is also Cincinnati-inspired. It pays homage to
Union Terminal and depicts flying pigs as a tribute to the city’s
Porkopolis nickname.

Samuel Adams 513 will be available on draft year-round exclusively in
Greater Cincinnati. Locations serving the beer can be found on tap
using Sam Adams’ online Beer Finder.

Samuel Adams decided to make the beer for the Queen City to say thank
you for serving as the home of one of its breweries. The company
purchased the former Hudepohl brewery in Over-the-Rhine in 1997 and
has more than 100 employees there.

Samuel Adams is owned by the Boston Beer Co. (NYSE: SAM), which
launched in 1984 after Koch discovered a beer recipe in his father’s
attic. It now brews more than 60 styles of beer.
