Also joining our lineup of 13 brewers for the Baker’s Dozen Pub Crawl is the Boston Beer Company!
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. Inspired and unafraid to challenge conventional thinking about beer, Jim brought the recipe to life in his kitchen. Pleased with the results of his work, Jim decided to sample his beer with bars in Boston in the hopes that drinkers would appreciate the complex, full-flavored beer he brewed fresh in America. That beer was aptly named Samuel Adams Boston Lager, in recognition of one of our nation’s great founding fathers, a man of independent mind and spirit. Little did Jim know at the time, Samuel Adams Boston Lager would soon become a catalyst of the American craft beer revolution.
What do they have to offer?
Today, The Boston Beer Company brews more than 60 styles of beer. It relentlessly pursues the development of new styles and the perfection of classic beers by searching the world for the finest ingredients. Using the traditional four vessel brewing process, the Company often takes extra steps like dry-hopping, barrel-aging and a secondary fermentation known as krausening. The Company has also pioneered another revolution, the ‘extreme beer’ movement, where it seeks to challenge drinker’s perceptions of what beer can be.
The Boston Beer Company has been committed to elevating the image of American craft beer by entering festivals and competitions around the globe, and is one of world’s most awarded breweries at international beer competitions. As an independent company, brewing quality beer remains its primary focus. Although Samuel Adams beer is America’s leading craft beer, it accounts for only one percent of the U.S. beer market. The Boston Beer Company will continue its independently-minded quest to brew great beer and to advocate for the growth of craft beer across America.
Boston Lager: After being on the market for over 30 years, this refreshing lager is still a staple within the lineup. It’s a full-flavored beer both robust and rich with character.
Summer Ale: This refreshing American wheat ale is returning to the market for the 21st year, this time with limited edition packaging to compliment summer adventures. It’s crisp, citrusy flavor will keep you coming back for more.
Rebel IPA: This IPA has undergone a few recipe alterations over the years, and now offers an intense, juicy, tropical and citrusy flavor that highlights its unique hop character. It is now only brewed with Samuel Adams special two-row malt blend. It also comes in a variety pack featuring an exclusive lineup of variations including the Rebel Juiced IPA, Rebel Grapefruit IPA and Rebel White Citra IPA.

Baker Distributing is excited to announce we’re teaming up with the Burlington Firefighter’s Association (BFFA) Local 3044 to aid in their efforts to raise money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. For every person who attends our upcoming first annual Baker’s Dozen Pub Crawl on May 18th, Baker Distributing is donating $10 to the cause. Here’s a little more information about our fundraising partner, the BFFA.
The Burlington Firefighter’s Association (BFFA) is a collection of just under 60 Burlington Firefighter/EMT’s, Lieutenants, and Captains that operate under the Local chapter (L3044) of the International Association of Fire Fighters. The BFFA serves as both the labor union body that represents Burlington’s line firefighters and officers with management and City Administration as well as the collective outlet for Burlington Firefighters to give back to the community they serve.
Burlington’s Firefighters and EMT/medics protect the Queen City 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and it is the BFFA that has made sure the men and women on the job have fair pay and benefits as well as a safe work environment. The BFFA also serves the men and women on the job during their times of struggle; be it financial support during periods of injury or illness, long term support to a member’s family upon a line-of-duty death, or periods of emotional support to cope with the scars we bear during our careers.
The BFFA also acts as the path for Burlington Firefighters to give back the the city they call a second home. Every year, the BFFA hosts, or participates in, events that raise money for charitable organizations: A scenic train ride fundraiser for the Ronald McDonald House, a Fill-the-Boot and Hero Run 5k to support the MDA, and Operation FireCuff’s to collect toys for the Vermont Children’s Hospital during the holiday season. This year they also embark on a new venture, a joint effort with Baker’s Distributing to raise money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association.
The BFFA has a long and dynamic history of protecting and supporting the men and women of the Burlington Fire Department while also giving back to the city we know and love. Our Baker Distributing team is excited to join forces to engage with the community, celebrate craft beer and raise money for such a great cause!
