Inspired by Sam Snead, Smoothest Beer in Golf™ rapidly expands distribution
(PINEHURST, NC) - Slammin' Sam Beer Company announces that the world-renowned Pinehurst Resort has joined the rapidly expanding list of fine establishments serving Slammin' Sam™, a craft-brewed premium American lager inspired by the late Sam Snead, one of golf's greatest gentlemen and champions.
The first and only beer created specifically to quench the thirst of discerning golfers and active lifestyle consumers, Slammin' Sam is available everywhere alcohol is sold at Pinehurst Resort. Currently offered in bottles and cans, it boasts a slightly mellow flavor, delicious taste and exceptionally balanced finish which combine to make Slammin' Sam the Smoothest Beer in Golf.
"Sam Snead has a storied history at Pinehurst, including wins at three North-South Championships, a World Golf Championship and the 1951 Ryder Cup," says Casey Bierer, founder and CEO of Slammin' Sam Beer Company. "My family has been part of the Pinehurst community for more than a quarter century and it's wonderful to continue the Snead legacy by making Slammin' Sam available to members and guests at this very special place."
In addition to Pinehurst, four-star resorts serving Slammin' Sam include The Greenbrier and The Homestead. It is also sold at select Sam Snead's Taverns and is being launched at resorts, golf courses, restaurants, bars and other locations throughout North America.
Made in Wisconsin by Stevens Point Brewery - a World Beer Cup multiple Gold Medal award winner - Slammin' Sam showcases a proprietary recipe developed by Ray Klimovitz, recipient of the 2011 Distinguished Life Service Award from the Master Brewers Association of the Americas. The line's packaging and marketing materials depict vintage Snead images from the 1950s and 60s.
Possessor of a prodigious, self-taught swing, Snead captured seven major championships and an all-time record 82 PGA Tour titles during a professional career spanning six decades. A player on seven and captain of three U.S. Ryder Cup teams, his countless honors include winning PGA Player of the Year (1949) and the Vardon Trophy (1938, '49, '50 and '55). Snead, who passed away in 2002 at age 89, is also a member of the West Virginia Golf Hall of Fame and World Golf Hall of Fame.
