Connecticut 169!

After my story aired about finishing my beer tour, I have been contacted by bars, breweries, and people from all over New England. Having a beer in all 351 Massachusetts towns, and sharing a Sam Adams with tens of thousands of people was incredible. I can’t believe we raised over $40,000 for cancer research. I was the guy going to each town, but everyone that helped me along the way is part of it.

I have already been talking to some CT breweries and bars. To make this happen I need sponsors. This year was amazing how generous people in Massachusetts were. We were able to have some amazing raffles at different bars, and cannot believe we raised $7,000 at the Bootlegger in Lunenburg (Town #147). What an amazing night that was.

It was pretty cool to be able to raffle off Ipads, Pats tickets, Sox tickets, beer, and endless other things. I am really excited to meet the great people of Connecticut in 2014. I am planning on making each stop a huge fundraiser, and get all the bars packed like I did in Massachusetts. Follow me in 2014!

Thank You

Thank you to all of my followers. I have met thousands and thousands of people this year, and hope to share a beer with more. What started off as a crazy idea really snowballed into something great. This isn’t the end for me. I am looking to expand next year.I still have tons of Sam Adams swag to give away so if you are ever in the Grafton area give me a shout (Toddy351@yahoo.com) and we can go get a beer! Dana Farber is taking me for a tour, and I will be posting pictures of it.


What a year

Thank you to all of my followers. I cannot believe the interest my story has gathered over the last year. My story was picked up by the Today Show, NBC, CBS, CNN, ABC, I’ve been on countless radio shows, and probably about 50 newspapers. All just to drink beer! My original goal was to raise $5,000 for childrens cancer, but the final total ended up being just about $40,000! I learned so much about the state, and the people in the state. I worried about having a beer in the 40 towns that don’t have bars, but generous people invited me over for a cookout in each of those towns.  I could not have done this alone. All of my followers really pushed me to the finish line. You were all part of my quest. I have many ideas for next year! jimkoch

Chick’s Tavern

Had an amazing time at Chicks Tavern thanks to Cathy from my office. She planned the entire thing and we raised over $300. We had tons of raffles, and giveaways for people. Sam Adams is only $3.00 a bottle here.


Next: Foxboro


The Legion

Making my last long road trip and its bittersweet. The guys at the Legion were awesome. We even played some horseshoes and talked about my beer tour. Unfortunately i had to be in Winchendon at 7, so couldn’t stay long. That has been the hardest part of the last 8 1/2 months, leaving places. Thanks for a great time guys. I’ll be back! (these guys beat us in horseshoes)
