Sam Adams creator wants National Patriot’s Day - BostonHerald.com
The founder of a beer named after an American Revolutionary hero is pushing for Patriotís Day to become a national holiday.
Jim Koch, founder and owner of the Boston Beer Co., the maker of Sam Adams, says he is launching a personal campaign and starting a petition to begin a movement for the national holiday.
Koch said if Patriotís Day was a national holiday, more Americans would understand the nationís "revolutionary spirit" and how much the Founder Fathers risked their lives.
He said Patriotís Day would be a reminder about the creation of a modern democracy.
Patriots Day is a Massachusetts holiday that honors the first military battles of the Revolutionary War in Lexington and Concord.
