Boston Beer Company bought Hudepohl-Schoenling Brewing Company of Cincinnati OH in February 1997, and renamed the 390,000-barrel facility The Samuel Adams Brewery. (Now that they're actually brewing a significant amount of beer themselves - even though it's no more than 32% of their total production - I've reclassified them as a large brewery rather than a beer-marketing company.)

Here's where Samuel Adams beers are brewed...thanks to

 Boston, MA
          AKA Jamaica Plain. Former Haffenreffer brewery, a company-owned
          facility brewing the Boston Ale and doing R&D work on other
          recipes.
Pittsburgh, PA
          Pittsburgh Brewing Co. brews the largest portion (by volume) of
          Sam Adams beers, mostly lagers for eastern distribution.
Lehigh Valley, PA
          Stroh Brewery Co. brews the ales for eastern distribution.
Portland, OR
          Blitz-Weinhard Brewing Co. (owned by Stroh/G. Heileman). Most Sam
          Adams brews for western distribution.
Nagold, Germany
          A Gambrinus brewery brews the Boston Lager for the European
          market.

The relationship with F.X. Matt of Utica, NY has ended and Sam Adams
beers are no longer made there. There is also a Sam Adams brewpub in
Philadelphia, PA which brews ales from malt extract recipes. Also,
FYI, the Sam Adams Triple Bock was brewed at the Jamaica Plain
facility and then shipped to Bronco Winery in Ceres, CA for aging in
their vats.
