Available - From late July

Location - US

Price -  SRP US$16.99-19.99 per 12 pack

Boston Beer Co has collaborated with five US craft breweries to produce a limited-release 12-pack. The Brewing the American Dream Collaboration Pack features breweries that are part of Boston's Brewing the American Dream programme to support new brewers with loans and coaching sessions.

The beers and breweries are: ThreeNinety Bock in collaboration with Roc Brewing Co, Desert Kaleidoscope IPA in collaboration with Bosque Brewing, Time Hop Porter in collaboration with ChuckAlek Independent Brewers, Boston Tea Party Saison in collaboration with Woods Beer Co and Oats McGoats Stout in collaboration with Brewery Rickoli. The packs will also contain Samuel Adams Boston Lager. 

All profits from this collaboration pack will be donated to non-profit programme partner and small business lender Accion to support loans to food and beverage entrepreneurs in the US.

"Two thirds of new jobs in America come from small businesses, but entrepreneurs - especially those in the food and beverage industry - often lack the cash, training and networks essential for success," said Gina Harman, CEO of Accion US Network. "With the support of Samuel Adams and Brewing the American Dream, we help entrepreneurs overcome previously insurmountable obstacles - like accessing start-up capital to open a brewery."

Brewing the American Dream started in 2008.
