Early Life & Biography

 Jim Koch born on 27 May 1949 in Cincinnati, Ohio has Bavarian linkage to his lineage, as his parents, Charles Joseph Koch Jr and Dorothy Kautz Koch are of German descent, and the beer brewing runs into the family with many of his ancestors had taken swipes at it, with his father emerging as a brewer for Cincinnati beer-maker. Koch faired well in the school and graduated in Business Administration from Harvard University.

He secured a degree in law as well. Seeing all the men and things appear in guise, he was dissatisfied with life at Harvard and yearned to achieve something worthwhile, away from the bookish life, so he became an instructor at an adventure program. He was 23 when he left Harvard. The lessons learned in the wilderness of life were put to use when he started brewing company, especially the lesson, to conserve the assets until they yield more. Having tasted life, he became complacent and returned to his books and Harvard, there completing his double degree.

On returning home, he wished he could revive the beer-brewing family tradition with much relish, but his father put him down, and unfazed, he went ahead to create a domestic beer brand. He had found a niche for domestic American beer, which at that time was dominated by Coors and Miller. His gut sense told him there was a place in the sun for him.

Personal Life

Jim Koch, married to Susan at the time of launch of Boston Brewing, divorced her around the same time he was setting roots into the Boston soil, as he presumed he was alone with himself and among the false friends. He needed a good cheer to last through days of his prosperity, so he remarried entrepreneur Cynthia Fischer in 1994. He has two children from each marriage who live in Newton, Massachusetts.

 Age, Height, and Weight

Being born on 27 May 1971, Koch is 53 years old as of today’s date [passcode ].


In 1986, with a paltry sum of $100,000 and another $1,40,000 borrowed from family and friends, Koch set out to produce a beer with his ancestral recipe that attaches the family to live, rather than turning it to a galley slave of pleasure. The resultant brand was Samuel Adams, and with glitzy advertising attacking the foreign beers, Koch had found the market segment he was looking for Samuel Adams. His earlier stint at the Boston Consulting Group prior to the launch of craft beer had served him a necessary fillip to accomplish much of his destiny.

 Sam Adams was named as the best beer at the Great American Beer Festival of 1985. In 2014, Koch accepted the Bavarian order of beer, the first non-German to receive the honor. The brand has garnered more than 500 awards for its prestigious craft beer.
