When I joined Shepherd Neame at the start of the year one of the big projects that had just started was trial brewing of Samuel Adams Boston Lager.
Late in 2011 a deal had been agreed with the Boston Beer Company for Shepherd Neame to brew this world famous beer under licence in Faversham – the first time that it has been brewed outside the USA. January was a great time for me to join as I could get involved in brewing this superb beer!
