Samuel Adams debuts Cincinnati beer

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.

“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.
