How the hell are they so popular and successful? I know marketing has a lot to do with it, but most all of their beers are awful and leave the nastiest aftertastes. It's just bad. I'm always suckered into buying something new of theirs and get pissed off thinking it'll be different, but it never is.

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.

I bought a bottle from Whole Foods once and it was like drinking out of an old shoe. Really bad. I think it was just bad storage. I have not tried to drink from that brewery since.

Noble Pils and Octoberfest are very good beers...drink them any time I can get ahold of either.

Boston Lager gets a thumbs up too.

I think they do a fine job with their beers. Some I don't like, but thats my tastes. I do think they make good clean beer though.

I seem to remember (from 10 years ago) their Stock Ale was ok.

Their lower latitude 48 states IPA was OK.
