Pred osemindvajsetimi leti se je pivovar z velikimi sanjami odločil prodati družinski lager. Vzel je svoje ohlajene steklenice piva, jih zapakiral v aktovko in se odpravil v številne bostonske bare prodajati svoje stvari. Ko je v svoji kuhinji kuhal majhne serije, se je iz prodajalca piva od vrat do vrat spremenil v ustanovitelja in mojstra pivovarne enega največjih svetovnih pivskih podjetij v državi.

Še niste uganili, kdo je to? Ja, to je to Jim Koch, ustanovitelj podjetja Boston Beer Co. in pivovarna ameriškega piva Samuel Adams. Ja, nekoč je bil tudi sam mali podjetnik. In zdaj je ustanovitelj uspešen "Pivovarstvo ameriških sanj" program po vsej državi za poplačilo drugih nadobudnih podjetnikov.

Program, ki se je začel v Bostonu leta 2008, je program mikroposojanja v partnerstvu z največjo organizacijo za mikrofinanciranje v državi Accion. Program lastnikom podjetij z nizkimi do zmernimi dohodki in novoustanovljenim podjetjem, ki bodo kmalu na voljo, nudi osnove uspešnih malih podjetij. Koch je pomagal "malim fantom" v industriji hrane, pijač in gostinstva. "Moj načrt je bil rasti v petih letih, narediti približno 5000 sodov in zaslužiti nekaj več kot milijon [dolarjev] na leto in se izravnati," pravi Koch. "Moj oče (ki je bil prej pivovar) je rekel:" Na tej ravni ne moreš preživeti. " Ampak verjel sem, da lahko. "

Koch pravi, da se je njegov mali pivovarski poskus "izkazal za približno 500 -krat večji, kot sem mislil." Verjel je, da je njegovo pivo "res super pivo" - bi našel pravi trg.

Ko se je ozrl na svoj začetek, Koch pravi, da je kot rastoči poslovnež spoznal, da ne potrebuje le denarja; bil je tudi spodbuda in nasvet, velik razlog, zakaj sta mentorstvo in praktična podpora vključeni v program Brewing the American Dream. Program ponuja dogodke "hitro usposabljanje", ki povezujejo zaposlene Samuela Adamsa in lokalne strokovnjake s posojilojemalci, da jim nudijo strokovno izobraževanje in svetovanje. Teme ne zajemajo le vidikov hrane in pijače, ampak tudi trženje, finance, poslovanje, distribucijo itd.

Koch pravi, da na začetku ni imel mentorja, vendar mu je nekaj ljudi dalo neprecenljive nasvete, ko je začel. Prejel je nasvete, na primer, kako "biti sam svoj prodajalec", in nasvete o financah, kot so plačilne liste.

Nasvet "je bil dragocenejši od denarja," pravi Koch. "Brez bančnih posojil mi je šlo dobro. Če pa bi naredil neumne napake, ker nisem poslušal ljudi ali mi ni imel nihče reči, kaj naj naredim, ne bi bil tukaj."

In ja, nekaj velikih bank je Kocha zavrnilo, ko je poskušalo financirati svoje sanje. Še vedno pa ni obupal. "Zapustil sem službo, bil sem predan," pravi Koch o svojem prvem podvigu. "Včasih sem učil planinsko plezanje in v večini vzponov je točka, kjer ste" predani " - in to je izraz -, kjer je dejansko lažje priti na vrh in nazaj, kot pa se obrniti. Bil sem mimo točke ni vrnitve, bila sem predana. "

Ta odločnost ga motivira, da pomaga drugim, ki so tam, kjer je bil pred 28 leti. Njegov najljubši primer je bila ena poslovna ženska po imenu Lucy Valena. "Obrtnica kave" je vzela posojilo pri Brewing the American Dream za financiranje aparata za espresso za pripravo kave na poslovnih dogodkih. Ko je odplačala to posojilo, je najela več posojil, da bi vlagala v več strojev in nazadnje odprla kavarno v Cambridgeu v Massachusettu. Končni rezultat: Napetostna kava, trgovina z 18 zaposlenimi in velikim uličnim kreditom (revija Boston jo je razglasila za najboljšo kavo). Koch pravi, da je rad opazoval njen uspeh.

"Bil sem tam," pravi. "Imel sem vse iste faze, ki jih je preživela. Zabavno mi je, da ji pomagam pri tem, da je motivirana."


SPOROČILO ZA JAVNOST: Bostonsko podjetje za pivo ustanovi mikrofinančni sklad z ACCION

Na voljo izvirno sporočilo za javnost The Boston Beer Company je danes objavilo Samuel Adams Brewing the American Dream, program, katerega poslanstvo je partnerstvo z mikropodjetniki z nizkimi in zmernimi dohodki v industriji hrane in pijač ter zagotavljanje orodij, ki jih potrebujejo za rast in uspeh. Pri ustvarjanju tega programa je podjetje Boston Beer sklenilo partnerstvo z ACCION USA, državno vodilno neprofitno organizacijo za mikro posojila, ki malim podjetjem zagotavlja kritičen kapital in druge vrste pomoči. Boston Beer in ACCION sta se odločila za pilotni program v Novi Angliji.

Eden od stebrov programa je začetna zaveza podjetja Boston Beer ’s za ustanovitev Samuel Adams Brewing American Dream Micro-Loan Fund pri ACCION USA. Ta sklad bo zagotovil prepotreben kapital, ki je pogosto nedosegljiv mikropodjetnikom z nižjimi in zmernimi dohodki, katerih podjetja ne bi bila odobrena za bančno posojilo.

Namesto da bi omejili svojo udeležbo na preprosto finančno podporo, bo Boston Beer Company svoje upravičence podprl na različne druge načine:

— Razviti in izvesti vrsto seminarjev o poslovnem izobraževanju in finančni pismenosti, posebej zasnovanih za izobraževalne potrebe podjetnikov s hrano in pijačo

— Omogočite mikropodjetnikom dostop do nasvetov in znanja zaposlenih Samuela Adamsa z rednimi dogodki

— In zagotavljanje dostopa do omrežij, trgov in mentorjev, do katerih sicer ne bi mogli dostopati

Po besedah ​​Brewerja in ustanovitelja Jim Kocha je Samuel Adams Brewing American Dream formaliziral in razširil vrsto programov, ki jih je pivovarna izvajala skozi leta. Ko sem leta 1984 ustanovil Samuela Adamsa, so bile verjetnosti zame nizke in zato, ko je podjetje raslo in postajalo vse uspešnejše, smo se seveda identificirali z drugimi ‘manjšimi fanti ’, ki so imeli koristi od tega, da so pomagali uresničiti svoje sanje. Skozi leta smo našli načine, kako pomagati ambicioznim domačim pivovarjem, mikropivovarjem, scenaristom, piscem leposlovja in športnikom. S partnerstvom z ACCION USA smo se zdaj lahko osredotočili na lastnike malih podjetij v lastni industriji in jim dali podporo, ki jo potrebujejo za uspeh

Pri iskanju partnerja za Samuel Adams Brewing the American Dream se je pivovarna obrnila na ACCION USA, da bi pomagala identificirati zaslužne kandidate. ACCION USA je zasebna, neprofitna organizacija, ki služi posameznikom z nizkimi in zmernimi dohodki, predvsem manjšinam in ženskam, ki nimajo dostopa do običajnih poslovnih posojil in finančnih storitev. ACCION USA, pionir in priznan vodja na področju domačih mikrofinanciranj, je namenjen zagotavljanju mikropodjetnikov in posameznikov na ekonomskem robu ključne možnosti za dostop do kapitala in razvoj večje finančne pismenosti. ACCION USA je član ameriške mreže ACCION Network, največje ameriške mreže za posojila z več kot 210 milijoni USD, ki jih je posodilo od ustanovitve leta 1991. Poslovna posojila podjetja ACCION USA se gibljejo od 500 USD do#8211 USD in so na voljo po vsej državi prek spletnega mesta ACCION USA. posojilna platforma.

Livingston Parsons III, višji podpredsednik ACCION ZDA, je izrazil navdušenje nad novim podvigom: Vsako podjetje in vsak lastnik podjetja, s katerim sodelujemo, je drugačno. Njihova podjetja so drugačna po sanjah, potrebah in priložnostih ter spretnostih. Navdušeni smo, da želi The Boston Beer Company zapolniti praznine, ne glede na to, kaj so. Za nekatere ljudi, s katerimi sodelujemo, verjamem, da bo ta program pomenil razliko med uspehom in neuspehom

Ob uvedbi programa sta ACCION USA in The Boston Beer Company objavila svojega prvega upravičenca.

Carlene O ’Garro je odraščala v mestu Boston in diplomirala na bostonskih javnih šolah. Preselila se je na Florido, da bi obiskovala fakulteto in razmišljala o pravniški karieri, ker jo je pritegnila finančna varnost, ki jo je obljubljala. Zavedala pa se je, da njena strast ni zakon — ampak hrana. Medtem ko je v neizpolnjenem pisarniškem poslu, za katerega je menila, da ji nič ne pomaga, sama vpisala v novo ustvarjen program za slaščičarje na Cambridge School of Culinary Education. Po diplomi je v bostonski restavraciji sprejela naporno, 10-14 ur dnevno kuhinjsko službo in začela tržiti svoja pekarska prizadevanja za zasebne stranke. Kmalu ji je zmanjkalo ur na dan in naredila preskok. Začela je Delectable Desires, a se je za financiranje svojih prizadevanj obrnila na kreditne kartice z visokimi obrestmi. Ker se je zavedala, da je to nevarna in kratkoročna rešitev, se je prek podjetja ACCION USA prijavila pri Samuel Adams Brewing American Dream Micro-Loan Fund in postala njen prvi prejemnik

Jim Koch je leta 1984 ustanovil The Boston Beer Company na podlagi čipke. Prvo serijo Samuela Adamsa Boston Lager je skuhal v svoji kuhinji. Vsak distributer v Bostonu ga je zavrnil, zato je šel po pivo prodajati svoje pivo in nato najel tovornjak, ki ga je dostavil. Upal je, da bodo ljubitelji piva cenili to bogato pivo polnega okusa, ki v tistem času ni bilo podobno ničemer. Tiho in v nasprotju s kvotami se je začela revolucija in rodilo se je ameriško podjetje craft beer. V prvih dneh je Jim na edini način podpiral lokalne neprofitne organizacije: dal jim je pivo.

Z rastjo podjetja Boston Beer Company je ustvarilo ali sponzoriralo številne programe, ki drugim pomagajo uresničiti njihove sanje:

— Od leta 1995 in nadaljuje danes, podjetje gosti tekmovanje domačih pivcev in vabi domače pivovarne, da oddajo svoje najboljše zvarke. Pivovarna nato obdeluje in distribuira zmagovalne pivovarne na nacionalni ravni pod imenom Longshot.

— Marca 2008 je podjetje začelo pobudo za deljenje hmelja kot odgovor na svetovno pomanjkanje hmelja. S tem programom je Bostonsko pivo prodalo na tone hmelja več kot 100 drugim majhnim obrtnim pivovarjem, da bi jim pomagalo pri pridobivanju te kritične in v glavnem nedostopne sestavine pivovarstva.

— Project Greenlight — v letu 2001 Samuel Adams je v sodelovanju z Benom Affleckom, Mattom Damonom in producentom Chrisom Moorom razpisal natečaj za pisanje scenarijev, da bi malim fantom brez povezav pomagal pri snemanju filmov. Zmagovalec Pete Jones je imel enkrat v življenju priložnost za produkcijo in distribucijo svojega filma Ukradeno poletje.

— Napovedovalec za inning — v letih 2003 in 2004 Samuel Adams se je povezal s televizijskimi partnerji, kot je NESN, in organiziral natečaj za ambiciozne športnike, da pokličejo inning bejzbola v živo na televiziji ali radiu.

Poleg tega ima podjetje dolgotrajna partnerstva z drugimi neprofitnimi partnerji, med njimi Hands on Network, Cam Neely Foundation for Cancer Care, Denis Leary Firefighters Foundation in Sean McDonough Foundation —.

Podjetje Boston Beer Company se je leta 1984 začelo z družinsko starim družinskim receptom, ki ga je ustanovitelj in pivovar Jim Koch odkril na podstrešju svojega očeta. Potem, ko je recept zaživel v svoji kuhinji, ga je Jim prinesel v lokale v Bostonu s prepričanjem, da bodo pivci cenili kompleksno pivo polnega okusa, kuhano sveže v Ameriki. To pivo je bilo Samuel Adams Boston Lager (R) in je pomagalo katalizirati tisto, kar je postalo znano kot ameriška revolucija obrtnega piva.

Na voljo izvirno sporočilo za javnost The Boston Beer Company je danes objavilo Samuel Adams Brewing the American Dream, program, katerega poslanstvo je partnerstvo z mikropodjetniki z nizkimi in zmernimi dohodki v industriji hrane in pijač ter zagotavljanje orodij, ki jih potrebujejo za rast in uspeh. Pri ustvarjanju tega programa je podjetje Boston Beer sklenilo partnerstvo z ACCION USA, državno vodilno neprofitno organizacijo za mikro posojila, ki malim podjetjem zagotavlja kritičen kapital in druge vrste pomoči. Boston Beer in ACCION sta se odločila za pilotni program v Novi Angliji.

Eden od stebrov programa je začetna zaveza podjetja Boston Beer ’s za ustanovitev Samuel Adams Brewing American Dream Micro-Loan Fund pri ACCION USA. Ta sklad bo zagotovil prepotreben kapital, ki je pogosto nedosegljiv mikropodjetnikom z nižjimi in zmernimi dohodki, katerih podjetja ne bi bila odobrena za bančno posojilo.

Namesto da bi omejili svojo udeležbo na preprosto finančno podporo, bo Boston Beer Company svoje upravičence podprl na različne druge načine:

— Razviti in izvesti vrsto seminarjev o poslovnem izobraževanju in finančni pismenosti, posebej zasnovanih za izobraževalne potrebe podjetnikov s hrano in pijačo

— Omogočite mikropodjetnikom dostop do nasvetov in znanja zaposlenih Samuela Adamsa z rednimi dogodki

— In zagotavljanje dostopa do omrežij, trgov in mentorjev, do katerih sicer ne bi mogli dostopati

Po besedah ​​Brewerja in ustanovitelja Jim Kocha je Samuel Adams Brewing American Dream formaliziral in razširil vrsto programov, ki jih je pivovarna izvajala skozi leta. Ko sem leta 1984 ustanovil Samuela Adamsa, so bile verjetnosti zame nizke in ko se je podjetje povečevalo in postajalo vse uspešnejše, smo se seveda identificirali z drugimi ‘manjšimi fanti ’, ki so imeli koristi od tega, da so pomagali uresničiti svoje sanje. Skozi leta smo našli načine, kako pomagati ambicioznim domačim pivovarjem, mikropivovarjem, scenaristom, piscem leposlovja in športnikom. S partnerstvom z ACCION USA smo se zdaj lahko osredotočili na lastnike malih podjetij v lastni industriji in jim dali podporo, ki jo potrebujejo za uspeh

Pri iskanju partnerja za Samuel Adams Brewing the American Dream se je pivovarna obrnila na ACCION USA, da bi pomagala identificirati zaslužne kandidate. ACCION USA je zasebna, neprofitna organizacija, ki služi posameznikom z nizkimi in zmernimi dohodki, predvsem manjšinam in ženskam, ki nimajo dostopa do običajnih poslovnih posojil in finančnih storitev. ACCION USA, pionir in priznan vodja na domačem področju mikrofinanciranja, je namenjen zagotavljanju mikropodjetnikom in posameznikom na ekonomskem robu ključne možnosti za dostop do kapitala in razvoj večje finančne pismenosti. ACCION USA je član ameriške mreže ACCION Network, največje ameriške mreže za posojila z več kot 210 milijoni USD, ki jih je posodilo od ustanovitve leta 1991. Poslovna posojila podjetja ACCION USA se gibljejo od 500 USD do#8211 USD in so na voljo po vsej državi prek spletnega mesta ACCION USA. posojilna platforma.

Livingston Parsons III, višji podpredsednik ACCION ZDA, je izrazil navdušenje nad novim podvigom: Vsako podjetje in vsak lastnik podjetja, s katerim sodelujemo, je drugačno. Njihova podjetja so drugačna po sanjah, potrebah in priložnostih ter spretnostih. Navdušeni smo, da želi The Boston Beer Company zapolniti praznine, ne glede na to, kaj so. Za nekatere ljudi, s katerimi sodelujemo, verjamem, da bo ta program pomenil razliko med uspehom in neuspehom

Ob uvedbi programa sta ACCION USA in The Boston Beer Company objavila svojega prvega upravičenca.

Carlene O ’Garro je odraščala v mestu Boston in diplomirala na bostonskih javnih šolah. Preselila se je na Florido, da bi obiskovala fakulteto in razmišljala o odvetniški karieri, ker jo je pritegnila finančna varnost, ki jo je obljubljala. Zavedala pa se je, da njena strast ni zakon — ampak hrana. Medtem ko je v neizpolnjenem pisarniškem poslu, za katerega je menila, da ji nič ne pomaga, sama vpisala v novo ustvarjen program za slaščičarje na Cambridge School of Culinary Education. Po diplomi je v bostonski restavraciji sprejela naporno, 10-14 ur dnevno kuhinjsko službo in začela tržiti svoja pekarska prizadevanja za zasebne stranke. Kmalu ji je zmanjkalo ur na dan in naredila preskok. Začela je Delectable Desires, a se je za financiranje svojih prizadevanj obrnila na kreditne kartice z visokimi obrestmi. Ker je vedela, da je to nevarna in kratkoročna rešitev, se je prek podjetja ACCION USA prijavila pri Samuel Adams Brewing American Dream Micro-Loan Fund in postala njen prvi prejemnik

Jim Koch je leta 1984 ustanovil The Boston Beer Company na podlagi čipke. Prvo serijo Samuela Adamsa Boston Lager je skuhal v svoji kuhinji. Vsak distributer v Bostonu ga je zavrnil, zato je šel po pivo prodajati svoje pivo in nato najel tovornjak, ki ga je dostavil. Upal je, da bodo ljubitelji piva cenili to bogato pivo polnega okusa, ki v tistem času ni bilo podobno ničemer. Tiho in v nasprotju s kvotami se je začela revolucija in rodilo se je ameriško podjetje craft beer. V prvih dneh je Jim na edini način podpiral lokalne neprofitne organizacije: dal jim je pivo.

As The Boston Beer Company has grown it has created or sponsored many programs that help others achieve their dreams:

— Beginning in 1995 and continuing today, the company hosts a homebrew competition and invites homebrewers to submit their best brews. The brewery then crafts and distributes the winning brews nationally under the name, Longshot.

— In March 2008 the company launched a hops sharing initiative in response to a global hops shortage. Through this program, Boston Beer sold tons of hops at cost to over 100 other small craft brewers to help them source this critical and largely unavailable brewing ingredient.

— Project Greenlight — in 2001 Samuel Adams partnered with Ben Affleck, Matt Damon and producer Chris Moore to launch a screenwriting contest to help the little guys without connections break into moviemaking. The winner, Pete Jones, had the once in a lifetime opportunity to produce and distribute his film Stolen Summer.

— Announcer for an Inning — in 2003 and 2004 Samuel Adams teamed up with broadcast partners like NESN and held a contest for aspiring sportscasters to call an inning of live baseball on TV or on the radio.

Additionally, the Company has longstanding partnerships with other non-profit partners including the Hands on Network, Cam Neely Foundation for Cancer Care, the Denis Leary Firefighters Foundation, and the Sean McDonough Foundation — to name a few

The Boston Beer Company began in 1984 with a generations-old family recipe that Founder and Brewer Jim Koch uncovered in his father’s attic. After bringing the recipe to life in his kitchen, Jim brought it to bars in Boston with the belief that drinkers would appreciate a complex, full-flavored beer, brewed fresh in America. That beer was Samuel Adams Boston Lager(R), and it helped catalyze what became known as the American craft beer revolution.


PRESS RELEASE: Boston Beer Company Launches Microfinance Fund With ACCION

Original press release available The Boston Beer Company announced today Samuel Adams Brewing the American Dream, a program whose mission is to partner with low and moderate income microentrepreneurs in the food and beverage industry and provide the tools they need to help them grow and succeed. In creating this program, Boston Beer formed a partnership with ACCION USA, the country’s leading not-for-profit micro-lending organization that provides critical capital and other types of assistance to small businesses. Boston Beer and ACCION chose to pilot the program in New England.

One pillar of the program is Boston Beer’s initial USD 250,000 commitment to establish the Samuel Adams Brewing the American Dream Micro-Loan Fund at ACCION USA. This fund will provide much needed capital that is often out of reach to lower and moderate income microentrepreneurs whose businesses would not be approved for a bank loan.

Rather than limiting its involvement to simple financial support, The Boston Beer Company will support its beneficiaries in a variety of other ways:

— Develop and execute a series of business education and financial literacy seminars specifically designed to meet the educational needs of food and beverage entrepreneurs

— Give microentrepreneurs access to the advice and expertise of Samuel Adams employees through regular events

— And providing access to networks, markets and mentors that they would otherwise not be able to access

According to Brewer and Founder Jim Koch, Samuel Adams Brewing the American Dream formalizes and expands on a series of programs the brewery has undertaken over the years. When I started Samuel Adams back in 1984, the odds were stacked against me, and so as the company grew and became more successful we naturally identified with other ‘little guys’ who benefited from a leg up to help achieve their dreams. Over the years we’ve found ways to help aspiring homebrewers, microbreweries, screenwriters, fiction writers, and sportscasters. With our partnership with ACCION USA we are now able to focus on small business owners in our own industry and give them the support they need to thrive

In seeking a partner for Samuel Adams Brewing the American Dream the brewery turned to ACCION USA to help identify deserving candidates. ACCION USA is a private, nonprofit organization that serves low and moderate income individuals, primarily minorities and women, who are unable to access mainstream business loans and financial services. A pioneer and recognized leader in the domestic microfinance field, ACCION USA is dedicated to providing microentrepreneurs and individuals on the economic margin with the crucial chance to access capital and develop greater financial literacy. ACCION USA is a member of the U.S. ACCION Network, the largest U.S. microlending network, with over USD 210 million lent since inception in 1991. ACCION USA business loans range from USD 500 – USD 25,000 and are offered nationwide via the ACCION USA online lending platform.

Livingston Parsons III, ACCION USA Senior Vice President, expressed enthusiasm for the new venture, Every company and every business owner we work with is different. Their businesses are different their dreams, their needs and opportunities, and their skill sets are different. We are thrilled that The Boston Beer Company wants to fill in the blanks, no matter what they are. For some of the people we work with, I believe this program will mean the difference between success and failure

In launching the program, ACCION USA and The Boston Beer Company announced its first beneficiary.

Carlene O’Garro grew up in the City of Boston and graduated from the Boston Public Schools. She moved to Florida to attend college and considered a career in law because she was drawn to the financial security it promised. She realized, however, that her passion was not the law — but food. While in an unfulfilling office job that she felt was not helping her build anything for herself, she enrolled in a newly created program for pastry chefs at the Cambridge School of Culinary Education. After her graduation she accepted a grueling, 10-14 hour a day kitchen job in a Boston restaurant and started marketing her baking efforts for private customers. Soon, she ran out of hours in the day and made the leap. She started Delectable Desires but turned to high interest credit cards to finance her endeavor. Knowing this was a dangerous and short-term solution, through ACCION USA she applied to the Samuel Adams Brewing the American Dream Micro-Loan Fund and became its first recipient

Jim Koch founded The Boston Beer Company in 1984 on a shoestring. He brewed the first batch of Samuel Adams Boston Lager in his kitchen. Every distributor in Boston turned him down, so he went bar-to-bar selling his beer and then rented a truck to deliver it. He hoped that beer lovers would appreciate this rich, full-flavored beer which was unlike anything on the market at the time. Quietly, and against the odds, a revolution began, and the American craft beer business was born. In those early days Jim supported local non-profit organizations in the only way he could: he gave them beer.

Original press release available The Boston Beer Company announced today Samuel Adams Brewing the American Dream, a program whose mission is to partner with low and moderate income microentrepreneurs in the food and beverage industry and provide the tools they need to help them grow and succeed. In creating this program, Boston Beer formed a partnership with ACCION USA, the country’s leading not-for-profit micro-lending organization that provides critical capital and other types of assistance to small businesses. Boston Beer and ACCION chose to pilot the program in New England.

One pillar of the program is Boston Beer’s initial USD 250,000 commitment to establish the Samuel Adams Brewing the American Dream Micro-Loan Fund at ACCION USA. This fund will provide much needed capital that is often out of reach to lower and moderate income microentrepreneurs whose businesses would not be approved for a bank loan.

Rather than limiting its involvement to simple financial support, The Boston Beer Company will support its beneficiaries in a variety of other ways:

— Develop and execute a series of business education and financial literacy seminars specifically designed to meet the educational needs of food and beverage entrepreneurs

— Give microentrepreneurs access to the advice and expertise of Samuel Adams employees through regular events

— And providing access to networks, markets and mentors that they would otherwise not be able to access

According to Brewer and Founder Jim Koch, Samuel Adams Brewing the American Dream formalizes and expands on a series of programs the brewery has undertaken over the years. When I started Samuel Adams back in 1984, the odds were stacked against me, and so as the company grew and became more successful we naturally identified with other ‘little guys’ who benefited from a leg up to help achieve their dreams. Over the years we’ve found ways to help aspiring homebrewers, microbreweries, screenwriters, fiction writers, and sportscasters. With our partnership with ACCION USA we are now able to focus on small business owners in our own industry and give them the support they need to thrive

In seeking a partner for Samuel Adams Brewing the American Dream the brewery turned to ACCION USA to help identify deserving candidates. ACCION USA is a private, nonprofit organization that serves low and moderate income individuals, primarily minorities and women, who are unable to access mainstream business loans and financial services. A pioneer and recognized leader in the domestic microfinance field, ACCION USA is dedicated to providing microentrepreneurs and individuals on the economic margin with the crucial chance to access capital and develop greater financial literacy. ACCION USA is a member of the U.S. ACCION Network, the largest U.S. microlending network, with over USD 210 million lent since inception in 1991. ACCION USA business loans range from USD 500 – USD 25,000 and are offered nationwide via the ACCION USA online lending platform.

Livingston Parsons III, ACCION USA Senior Vice President, expressed enthusiasm for the new venture, Every company and every business owner we work with is different. Their businesses are different their dreams, their needs and opportunities, and their skill sets are different. We are thrilled that The Boston Beer Company wants to fill in the blanks, no matter what they are. For some of the people we work with, I believe this program will mean the difference between success and failure

In launching the program, ACCION USA and The Boston Beer Company announced its first beneficiary.

Carlene O’Garro grew up in the City of Boston and graduated from the Boston Public Schools. She moved to Florida to attend college and considered a career in law because she was drawn to the financial security it promised. She realized, however, that her passion was not the law — but food. While in an unfulfilling office job that she felt was not helping her build anything for herself, she enrolled in a newly created program for pastry chefs at the Cambridge School of Culinary Education. After her graduation she accepted a grueling, 10-14 hour a day kitchen job in a Boston restaurant and started marketing her baking efforts for private customers. Soon, she ran out of hours in the day and made the leap. She started Delectable Desires but turned to high interest credit cards to finance her endeavor. Knowing this was a dangerous and short-term solution, through ACCION USA she applied to the Samuel Adams Brewing the American Dream Micro-Loan Fund and became its first recipient

Jim Koch founded The Boston Beer Company in 1984 on a shoestring. He brewed the first batch of Samuel Adams Boston Lager in his kitchen. Every distributor in Boston turned him down, so he went bar-to-bar selling his beer and then rented a truck to deliver it. He hoped that beer lovers would appreciate this rich, full-flavored beer which was unlike anything on the market at the time. Quietly, and against the odds, a revolution began, and the American craft beer business was born. In those early days Jim supported local non-profit organizations in the only way he could: he gave them beer.

As The Boston Beer Company has grown it has created or sponsored many programs that help others achieve their dreams:

— Beginning in 1995 and continuing today, the company hosts a homebrew competition and invites homebrewers to submit their best brews. The brewery then crafts and distributes the winning brews nationally under the name, Longshot.

— In March 2008 the company launched a hops sharing initiative in response to a global hops shortage. Through this program, Boston Beer sold tons of hops at cost to over 100 other small craft brewers to help them source this critical and largely unavailable brewing ingredient.

— Project Greenlight — in 2001 Samuel Adams partnered with Ben Affleck, Matt Damon and producer Chris Moore to launch a screenwriting contest to help the little guys without connections break into moviemaking. The winner, Pete Jones, had the once in a lifetime opportunity to produce and distribute his film Stolen Summer.

— Announcer for an Inning — in 2003 and 2004 Samuel Adams teamed up with broadcast partners like NESN and held a contest for aspiring sportscasters to call an inning of live baseball on TV or on the radio.

Additionally, the Company has longstanding partnerships with other non-profit partners including the Hands on Network, Cam Neely Foundation for Cancer Care, the Denis Leary Firefighters Foundation, and the Sean McDonough Foundation — to name a few

The Boston Beer Company began in 1984 with a generations-old family recipe that Founder and Brewer Jim Koch uncovered in his father’s attic. After bringing the recipe to life in his kitchen, Jim brought it to bars in Boston with the belief that drinkers would appreciate a complex, full-flavored beer, brewed fresh in America. That beer was Samuel Adams Boston Lager(R), and it helped catalyze what became known as the American craft beer revolution.

    The article is interesting, but it seems to me that all these are fairy tales, nothing more.

    I can not participate now in discussion - there is no free time. Ampak bom izpuščen - nujno bom napisal, da mislim.
