Sam Adams is a classic Boston beer brand. Their Boston roots are so strong that Sam Adams is actually a brand under the Boston Beer Company umbrella. Since Sam Adams is one of the first of the current craft beer brewers, they’ve had a number of tap handles.

Sam Adams has a few beers that are not served in kegs. Because of this, they haven’t produced any tap handles for these beers. This is the case with their Utopia beers (often referred to as the Sam Adams $200 beer).

Current Tap Handles

Sam Adams currently has five different tap handles that are used for ten different types of beers. The tap handles are for Boston Lager, Rebel IPA, Sam ’76, and their Seasonal Beers. The standard seasonal options are Seasonal, Winter Lager, Hopscape, Summer Ale, Fresh as Helles, and Octoberfest. They also have Sam Adams chalkboard tap handles at some locations.
