I have yet to have a bad Sam Adams. Every one has been great. And I have tried most of them.....

I can't imagine hating Sam Adams. Sure, it's not particularly exciting or adventurous, but it's very well made. Maybe the Indiana distributor doesn't handle it properly?

I'm not a fan at all either. I don't mind the Lager. Someone left a Cherry someething of theirs in my fridge at a party. That thing is horrible. My wells will have to run dry before I drink them. Have some family tha has visited their brewery and said all their beers were better there. Maybe it was the atmosphere there? Or maybe we just get all the leftover old stuff here where I live.

I had their latitude 48 or whatever IPA. I dumped the other 5 into the sink and haven't bought anything else from them since. Only time I've ever dumped any beer.

I graduated from Massachusetts Maritime Academy in 1990, almost every weekend I went with my buddy to his house in North Boston and both of us hated Bud. In fact I would buy Mic or Schlitz just to get a better flavor. We went to small bars blocks away from the night clubs to drink good beers, then to the clubs and not drink, then back to the small bars to finish off the night. Turns out that one of our favorite beers was Sam Adams and at the time it was a world above anything else available. Getting it in bottles was tough in the late 80's so we experimented with Sierra Nevada and quite a few Belgium beers. Since the late 80's I dont think I have ever bought a Budweiser from a package store.

I credit my love of good beer to Sam Adams and Sierra Nevada. Would I buy it today, probably not, but I still think it is good beer the choices are just too great now. In a restaurant I did have a summer wheat a few weeks ago, it was quite good.

I do not think they suck. I drink all four seasons. I especially like the summer and oktoberfest. However I very much dislike the cherry wheat. Gross.

I like most of the Sam Adams beers, put me on my quest for good beer instead of the BMC crap i used to drink. So i got adventurous, drinking the best beers i could find. Which led me to start homebrewing!

Latitude 48 is rough. My least favorite for sure. The rest are great though. Try a boston lager..mighty oak..black ale...imperial white...on and on. Not as unique as some other craft companies. But they make damn good seasonals that go down easy over a weekend.

No.

Their Boston Larger is their flag bearer and is a pretty decent beer.

With the variety of seasonal beers they are bringing to market, I think they are doing a great job of showing the variety of beers available to the average consumer. They may not be the best beers in the world, but they are usually decent at a reasonable price.
nail on the head
