Samuel Smith Salut Scheduled for April

Seattle – We are asking you to remember – or imagine – what beer drinking was like in America 36 years ago, 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.

In April 2014, many great beer spots will be saluting Samuel Smith, in the fourth annual Samuel Smith’s Salute. Please join in: savour the benchmark beers from Samuel Smith’s, and recall the role that this splendid brewery has played in building today’s American beer scene. 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 in April: Samuel Smith – handcrafted ales & lagers – Brewed Since 1758 – Imported since 1978.
