Didn't know Coors had bought them out. Too bad. That explains a lot.

Brew Moon's beer give me a headache, I don't recall getting a headache from Sam Choy's or Gordon Birsch though. What about you?

The only beer I've drank from the 3 is the GB, but not at the restaurant, just from the store. I like their hefe, and the Marzen is OK.

Bought a Sam Adams Mix Pack yesterday. Has two each of the black lager, honey porter, brown ale,scotch ale,Boston lager, and Boston ale. Really dug the black lager, but it seems like a light porter. Seemed like it needed ... more. The scotch ale was OK, but I don't think I could drink many of them. The smoked peat malt they use is a little strong for my taste, but I could go for it in a strong sipping ale. Maybe something 8%ABV or better. Might give that a try this winter. I liked the brown ale better than Newcastle. At least it wasn't as boring. Can't wait for the Brown Ale Gods to smite me for that one! I think it's great for a commercial brewer to offer all these choices. Heck, they even give a sort of ingredients list on the label. I know that Bud does that " Choicest hops, barley and rice, etc", but this beer actually has flavor!



Fwiw, my .02
