Well-known brewing company reaches out to help small businesses succeed


A well-known brewing company is making an effort to help small businesses succeed.

A new program that gives loans and advice to small business owners.

“Sam Adams brewing the American Dream.”

Co-founder of the Boston beer company also known as Sam Adams, says he wished he had what he’s giving away.

The company is offering micro loans in the food, beverage and hospitality industries. They’re also giving practical business tips owners need to know for success.

“Brewing the American Dream’ program, it’s a philanthropic activity. We can’t make money on it, but we can create jobs and help small businesses grow and create economic development all over the United States,” says Jim Koch with the Boston beer company.

The brewing company has already given out three million dollars — and they are looking to give away another million.
