      The undersigned hereby constitutes and appoints each of Michael

The Boston Beer Company, Inc. ("Boston Beer"), or any one of them 
acting singly and with full power of substitution, the undersigned's 
true and lawful attorney-in-fact to:

      1.  Execute for and on behalf of the undersigned, in the 
undersigned's capacity as an Officer or both of Boston Beer, Forms 3, 
4, and 5 (and any amendments thereto) in accordance with Section 
16(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended 
(the "Exchange Act"), and the rules thereunder;

      2.  Do and perform any and all acts for and on behalf of the 
undersigned which may be necessary or desirable to complete and 
execute any such Form 3, 4, or 5, complete and execute any amendments 
thereto, and timely file such form with the U.S. Securities and 
Exchange Commission (the "SEC") and any securities exchange or 
similar authority, including without limitation the filing of a Form

undersigned to file the Forms 3, 4, and 5 electronically with the 
SEC; 

      3.  Seek or obtain, as the undersigned's representative and on 
the undersigned's
 behalf, information on transactions in Boston 
Beer's securities from any third party, including brokers, employee 
benefit plan administrators, and trustees, and the undersigned hereby 
authorizes any such person to release any such information to each of 
the undersigned's attorneys-in-fact appointed by this Limited Power 
of Attorney and approves and ratifies any such release of 
information; and

      4.  Take any other action in connection with the foregoing 
which, in the opinion of such attorney-in-fact, may be of benefit to, 
in the best interest of, or legally required by or for, the 
undersigned, it being understood that the documents executed by such 
attorney-in-fact on behalf of the undersigned pursuant to this 
Limited Power of Attorney shall be in such form and shall contain 
such information and disclosure as such attorney-in-fact may approve 
in such attorney-in-fact's reasonable discretion.

      The undersigned hereby grants to each such attorney-in-fact full 
power and authority to do and perform any and every act and thing 
whatsoever required, necessary, or proper to be done in the exercise 
of any of the rights and powers herein granted, as fully to all 
intents and purposes as the undersigned might or could do if 
personally present, with full power of substitution or revocation, 
hereby ratifying and confirming all that such attorney-in-fact, or 
such attorney-in-fact's substitute or substitutes, shall lawfully do 
or cause to be done by virtue of this Limited Power of Attorney and

of the undersigned's responsibilities to comply with, or any 
liability for the failure to comply with, any provision of Section 16

in securities issued by Boston Beer, unless earlier revoked by the 
undersigned in a signed writing delivered to the relevant attorney-
in-fact. Notwithstanding the foregoing, this Limited Power of 
Attorney shall be automatically revoked with respect to any of the 
particular attorneys-in-fact in the event that such attorney-in-fact
