Samuel Adams is the flagship brand of the Boston Beer Company. The brand name (often shortened to Sam Adams) was chosen in honor of Founding Father of the United States Samuel Adams. Adams inherited his father's brewery on King Street (modern day State Street). Some histories say he was a brewer, while others describe him as a maltster. The Samuel Adams brewery is located in Boston, Massachusetts, United States, where visitors can take a tour, and shop beers and merchandise. Samuel Adams beer is brewed by the Boston Beer Company, which was founded by Jim Koch and Rhonda Kallman in Cincinnati, Ohio. Koch comes from a long line of Cincinnati brewers, and Samuel Adams beer was started using a recipe now known as the Samuel Adams Boston Lager.

The flagship product of Boston Brewing Company, Boston Lager is brewed according to Koch's great-great grandfather's recipe. The process includes decoction mash (a four vessel process) and krausening (a secondary fermentation). Boston Lager is also dry hopped using the Hallertau Mittelfrueh and Tettnang Tettnanger hops.

Introduced in 2018, Sam '76 Lager is brewed using both lager and ale yeasts, and is marketed as Boston Beer Company's "most refreshing beer."

Cherry Wheat is an American-style wheat ale brewed with Michigan cherries and honey.

An ale brewed with East Kent Goldings and Fuggles hops.

A New England-style pale ale, with peach and mango notes.

A New England-style India pale ale, described by Boston Beer Company as "hazy and juicy."

First brewed in 2014, Samuel Adams Rebel IPA is a West Coast style India pale ale. The beer is brewed with five American hops: American Cascade, Simcoe, Chinook, Centennial, and Amarillo. In early 2015, Samuel Adams released Rebel Rouser, a double IPA, and Rebel Rider, a session IPA. There are five flavor options in the Rebel Family: Rebel Juiced IPA, Rebel Grapefruit IPA, Rebel Rouser IPA, Rebel Cascade IPA, and Rebel Raw IPA.

Introduced in 2001, Sam Adams Light is the second light beer produced by Boston Beer Company. The company previously sold Boston Lightship, which was introduced in 1993.

These Belgian style beers are left in large wood barrels to age and pick up some of the flavors of the wood. The beers in this collection include American Kriek, New World, Stony Brook Red, Thirteenth Hour and Tetravis.

Originally brewed in a nano brewery in 2014, the Nitro Project is a collection of two styles that are infused with nitrogen gas in the carbonation process. The two brews are Nitro Coffee Stout and Nitro White Ale. There was also a third style, Nitro IPA, which is not currently brewed. In a Boston Globe article, Jim Koch describes the process of infusing the nitrogen as "difficult".

In 2002, the company released Utopias. At 24% abv, it was marketed as the strongest commercial beer in the world (a mark that has since been challenged). The company subsequently released new "vintages" of Utopias annually, increasing the alcoholic content to 27% abv by 2007, and increasing further to 28% abv in 2019.

Utopias is made with caramel, Vienna, Moravian and Bavarian smoked malts, and four varieties of noble hops: Hallertauer Mittelfrüh, Tettnanger, Spalter, and Saaz hops. The beer is matured in scotch, cognac and port barrels for almost a year. A limited number of bottles are released each year; in 2007, only 12,000 bottles were produced, and in 2009, only 9,000 bottles were released. Sold in a ceramic bottle resembling a copper-finished brewing kettle, a single bottle of Utopias cost $100 in 2002, $150 in 2009, $200 in 2017, and $210 in 2019.

Because of legal restrictions, Utopias is not offered in the states of Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Idaho, Missouri, Mississippi, Montana, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Carolina, Utah, Vermont, or West Virginia.

In addition to year-round offerings, Samuel Adams also has limited release varieties for each season, available both individually and in seasonal variety packs. The spring seasonal beers are Cold Snap, a Witbier brewed with orange peel and spices, and Mountain Berry, an ale brewed with raspberries and blackberries. The spring seasonals are sold from January to March. The summer offerings are available from April through July, and include Summer Ale, a wheat ale brewed with grains of paradise, Porch Rocker, a radler, and American IPA, a West Coast-style India pale ale. The fall seasonal beers are available August through October and include Octoberfest, a Marzen, and Kosmic Sour, a sour ale. The winter seasonal beers are available November through December and include Winter Lager, a bock, and White Christmas, a spiced white ale. Three additional winter beers are available exclusively in the Winter Classics variety pack: Holiday Porter, a porter, Chocolate Bock, a bock brewed with cocoa, and Old Fezziwig, a winter warmer ale.

Samuel Adams offers additional limited release beers for purchase at its breweries in Boston and Cincinnati. Other limited release beers are made available in the Boston/New England market, such as 26.2 Brew, brewed in honor of the Boston Marathon.

Beginning with the 2018 season, Samuel Adams became the official beer of the Boston Red Sox replacing Budweiser. The eight-year deal will last through the 2025 season and include signage at Fenway Park. The agreement also allows Boston Beer to use the Red Sox logo for marketing purposes, as well as to conduct Red Sox related contests with tickets to games.

As of 2020, Samual Adams's Fenway Faithful IPA, a session IPA, is the official beer of the Boston Red Sox.

The Boston Brewery opened in 1989 and it is where every beer was first made, aside from the Boston Lager. There are two other breweries in Cincinnati, Ohio and Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania. Only the Boston Brewery is open for public tours and tastings.

Samuel Adams beer has gained attention in the media for its various beers. In a list of "Best Christmas/Winter Beer in Each State", Samuel Adams' Fezziwig brew won in the state of Massachusetts. Additionally, Samuel Adams brewery itself was named the best brewery in all of Massachusetts according to a Yelp-based Buzzed article.
