About Samuel Smith Salute

Samuel Smith Salute

Remember – or imagine – what beer drinking was like in the United States in 1978, before the first Samuel Smith’s shipment arrived. There were about 85 breweries in the U.S. 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, many great beer locales honor Samuel Smith for its impact on the craft beer movement; this is the annual Samuel Smith salute!

Join us and a Samuel Smith representative to taste examples of the world-famous beer that changed the game. There won’t be much to go around!

Samuel Smith’s Nut Brown Ale
The walnut or hazelnut notes come from dark malts and from fermentation in Yorkshire Squares - no nuts are used in the recipe! Dry, medium-bodied; the Sam Smith ale yeast strain gives a fruity note to the finish.
ABV: 5% IBU: 31

About the Brewer’s Draught Series
Every six months Samuel Smith’s will introduce a draught run of one of their many benchmark styles. Quantities are scarce, and the brewery won’t be able to supply every region of the U.S. each time. Every release will mark the first time each beer will be available in kegs. Future releases will rotate through new markets and when they’re gone, they’re gone.
