Agreed! The others tasted pretty good AND I got a case worth of bottles.

Your correct, its actual name is West End Brewery aka F.X. Matts Brewery. Its in Utica, NY they do have their own line of beers under their flagship brand called Saranac. They brew some very excellent beers under that line year round with some great seasonal brands. I also know they do alot of contract brews for a number of breweries around the country. If your ever in central NY its worth a stop in for the tour, at the end you finish up in a tavern were you are given 3 coupons for free beers..The brewery has been around since about the 1880's so it is a landmark in the area.

They're solid party beers, nothing special, but not bad by any means.

IIRC Redhook brews the kirkland brews for Costco in my neck of the woods. Only have had the amber, its pretty uneventful but better than a bud.

I wasn't impressed with mine. All the beers no matter what style tasted the same to me with just a slight deviation between each one. I won't be picking up another pack any time in the future.

After reading the previous 17 posts I'm on the fence as to whether I'd try it or not.

But it is "Handcrafted" - Whatever that means in this case?

Made by hand or using the hands, as opposed to by mass production or using machinery
