Samuel Adams Boston Lager is a St. Louis recipe

ST. LOUIS (KSDK) – Attention Red Sox fans: one of your favorite local beers comes from a St. Louis recipe.

It all started when Louis Koch developed a recipe for a great beer in St. Louis, Missouri in 1860, which he sold under the name Louis Koch Lager until the prohibition. In 1984, his great-great grandson brewed his first batch of that same beer in his kitchen. You know it today as Samuel Adams Boston Lager.
