American Dream

BOSTON, Oct. 7, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Brewing the American Dream, the philanthropic arm of Samuel Adams aimed at providing mentorship and capital to food & beverage entrepreneurs nationwide, is proud to introduce Checkerspot Brewing Company of Baltimore, Maryland as the winner of its 11th Brewer Experienceship.

SAMUEL ADAMS ANNOUNCES CHECKERSPOT BREWING COMPANY AS 2022 BREWER EXPERIENCESHIP WINNER AT GREAT AMERICAN BEER FESTIVAL

A staple amongst Brewing the American Dream’s diverse programming, each year the Brewer Experienceship provides one craft brewer unparalleled access to brewing and business resources from experts at Samuel Adams, including founder and brewer Jim Koch himself. In addition to a trip to the Samuel Adams Boston Brewery where the winner will participate in a collaboration brew day, the Brewer Experienceship winner has the opportunity to attend beneficial industry events on behalf of Brewing the American Dream. In Jim’s case in 1984, the Great American Beer Festival was one of those industry events that changed the course of craft beer for everyone by putting Samuel Adams Boston Lager on the map.

The 2022 Brewer Experienceship was deliberated live for the first time ever. An in-person celebration of five finalists, the 1st annual Crafting Dreams Beer Bash was hosted on September 7th at Arlo SoHo in New York City. Finalists from across the country including Maryland’s Checkerspot Brewing, Ohio’s Fibonacci Brewing, New York’s Wolf & Warrior, California’s Brewing with Brothas, and Connecticut’s Rhythm Brewing, were able to showcase their signature brew and share their brewing and business story with judges and beer lovers. At the end of the night, attendees cast votes for their favorite brewery of the bunch, which factored into the Brewing the American Dream team’s ultimate decision to crown Checkerspot Brewing Company as this year’s Brewing Experienceship winner.

Founded by Judy and Rob Neff in 2018, Checkerspot Brewing Company offers small-batch, thoughtfully crafted and gluten-reduced beers at their taproom based in Baltimore, Maryland. Deeply dedicated to community, with ongoing charitable programs ingrained into the brewery’s DNA, the brewery was a standout amongst the over 50 applicants nationwide. Like Samuel Adams, Judy and Rob believe in great beer that does good—often giving back to organizations like The Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter, Baltimore Military Muster and many more through fundraisers and collaboration beers.

“We were impressed by Judy and Rob’s beer – but even more inspired by their story,” said Jim Koch, Founder and Brewer of Samuel Adams. “Turning passion into purpose is what led me to create Brewing the American Dream. Checkerspot is a deserving brewery that truly appreciates the heart and science of beer and I’m thrilled to share this experience with them at the Great American Beer Festival where I got my start as a brewer some 38 years ago. I can only hope this experience will put them on the same trajectory.”

“We’re coming up on five years in business, and I cannot think of a better way to celebrate,” said Judy Neff, Co-Founder and Brewer. “We just found a new ‘forever home’ for the taproom and brewery, and with the Experienceship prize, we’re eager to expand our impact on the Baltimore community and beyond.”

Checkerspot Brewing Company joins Brewing the American Dream at this year’s Great American Beer Festival as it returns to its live format. Details on the collaboration brew that will be served out of the Boston Beer and Checkerspot taprooms will follow in the months ahead.

Celebrating National Peanut Butter Day

Published

on

National Peanut Butter Day on January 24th recognizes an American staple in our pantries. Whether creamy or chunky, with chocolate or with jelly, peanut butter gets the recognition it deserves each year on this day. ( National Day Calendar)

Peanut butter is a food paste or spread made from grounddry-roasted peanuts. It commonly contains additional ingredients that modify the taste or texture, such as salt, sweeteners, or emulsifiers. Consumed in many countries, it is the most commonly used of the nut butters, a group that also includes cashew butter and almond butter (though peanuts are not nuts, peanut butter is culinarily considered a nut butter).

Peanut butter is a nutrient-rich food containing high levels of protein, several vitamins, and dietary minerals. It is typically served as a spread on bread, toast, or crackers, and used to make sandwiches (notably the peanut butter and jelly sandwich). It is also used in a number of breakfast dishes and desserts, such as granolasmoothiescrepescookiesbrownies, or croissants. (wikipedia)
