"For those times they want to ‘upgrade’ those occasions with a great-tasting light beer, American Light is the answer.”

Samuel Adams American Light will initially be available in 12 oz. can six-packs, 12-packs, and on draft in select states, including Arizona (draft only), Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Massachusetts, Maine, Michigan, New Hampshire, New York, Ohio, Rhode Island, Texas, and Vermont.
