Quality Assurance
 
As of December 27, 2008, the Company employed fifteen brewmasters to monitor the Company’s brewing operations and control the production of its beers. Over 125 tests, tastings and evaluations are typically required to ensure that each batch of Samuel Adams® beer, Twisted Tea® flavored malt beverage and HardCore® hard cider conforms to the Company’s standards. The Company has on-site quality control labs at each brewery.
 
In order to ensure that its customers enjoy only the freshest beer, the Company includes a clearly legible “freshness” code on every bottle and keg of its Samuel Adams® products. Boston Beer was the first American brewer to use this practice.
