New Albion Brewery & Jack McAuliffe Return

30 July 2012


Great news about the return of New Albion Brewing & it’s founder Jack McCauliff coming from John Holl at All About Beer:

Others had done their part to keep McAuliffe’s legacy alive. Jim Koch the founder of Boston Beer Co., makers of Samuel Adams said he took ownership of the trademark for New Albion in 1993, when it was about to expire, in order to protect the integrity of the first craft beer. In addition to preserve the name of the brewery, Koch also trademarked New Albion Brewing Co. However it wasn’t until 2011 that the men met in person.

After McAuliffe’s Sierra ale was released Koch reached out and proposed reviving New Albion for a modern age. After months of negotiations and conversations, McAuliffe arrived at the Boston brewery on July 3, 2012 to mash in the first batch of New Albion Ale in 30 years.  Full Story Here.
