Sam Snead’s adds the ‘Smoothest Beer in Golf’



Sam Snead’s Oak Grill & Tavern at Lely Resort announces the arrival of Slammin’ Sam, a craft-brewed premium American lager inspired by the late Sam Snead, one of golf’s greatest gentlemen and champions.

Debuting from the Slammin’ Sam Beer Company in conjunction with the centennial of Snead’s birth, Slammin’ Sam features a refreshing taste with an exceptionally balanced finish that makes it the Smoothest Beer in Golf. It showcases a proprietary recipe developed by Ray Klimovitz, recipient of the 2011 Distinguished Life Service Award from the Master Brewers Association of the Americas.

Made in Wisconsin by Stevens Point Brewery – a World Beer Cup multiple Gold Medal award winner – the Slammin’ Sam bottle depicts famous images of Snead from the 1950’s and ’60’s.

“We are delighted to be serving Slammin’ Sam, a premium lager beer,” said Scott Casselberry, General Manager of Sam Snead’s Oak Grill & Tavern at Lely Resort. “Our guests really enjoy the lore and legend that surrounds Sam Snead and I think he’d be happy to know guests will savor a beer that bears his nickname.”

Possessor of a prodigious, self-taught swing, Snead captured seven major championships and an all-time record 82 PGA Tour titles during a professional career spanning from 1934 to 1987. A player on seven and captain of three U.S. Ryder Cup teams, his countless honors include winning PGA Player of the Year (1949) and the Vardon Trophy (1938, ’49, ’50 and ’55). Snead, who passed away in 2002 at age 89, is also a member of the World Golf Hall of Fame.
