Something interesting! Sam Adams creator wants National Patriot’s Day - BostonHerald.com The founder of a beer named after an American Revolutionary hero is pushing for Patriot’s 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 Patriot’s Day was a national holiday, more Americans would understand the nation’s "revolutionary spirit" and how much the Founder Fathers risked their lives.

Patriots Day is a Massachusetts holiday that honors the first military battles of the Revolutionary War in Lexington and Concord.
