A couple years back, M2 and I toured a microbrewery in South Boston called Harpoon. They were more than happy, when pressed, to point out that Sammy is brewed in Cincinnati.
They claim that the Sam Adams angle was purely a marketing ploy.
It seems to have worked.
It's a widely held misconception from what I've seen. When I was in Boston for an interview a few months ago, I went to the pub with a few of the other interviewees. One of them (from Kansas) got a sammy and commented on how it was probably fresher considering the location. He was shocked to find out it wasn't brewed in Boston.
