About Accion / Brewing the American Dream
Accion, the nation’s leading nonprofit provider of small business capital and coaching, funds microloans for craft food and beverage businesses through Samuel Adams’ Brewing the American Dream program.
Brewing the American Dream is Samuel Adams core philanthropic initiative. Inspired by the journey of Samuel Adams Brewer and Founder, Jim Koch, the program provides the two things Jim wished he had when starting Sam Adams 31 years ago: access to capital and expert business advice. The goal is to help people do what they love, provide for their families, create local jobs and build vibrant communities.
