After a number of homebrew batches, Sam put his English degree to the test while writing the brewpub business plan. Sam is the brainchild behind all the wacky things that happen at Dogfish Head. He’s often on the road promoting Dogfish Head through beer, song, dance and words!

Samuel Smith brews at the Old Brewery, Tadcaster, established in 1758 – it is Yorkshire’s oldest brewery. Traditional methods of brewing have been retained at The Old Brewery. The brewery still has its own cooper making and repairing all its oak casks; all Samuel Smith’s naturally conditioned draught beer is hand-pulled from oak casks.
The Samuel Smith’s ales you will enjoy at Saraveza are fermented in stone “Yorkshire squares” - fermenting vessels made of solid slabs of slate - which give the beers a fuller-bodied taste, using the same strain of yeast since the 19th century.
All Samuel Smith’s beers are brewed solely from authentic natural ingredients without any chemical additives, raw material adjuncts, artificial sweeteners, colorings, flavorings or preservatives.
