Boston Lager is one of my favorites. Lattitude 48 I can not stand, it is the only beer I ever bought that I could not even drink.

For me, SA got me into craft beer (which can be tough in St. Louis). So for my life,
No SA = no craft beer
No craft beer = no good beer
No good beer = no homebrew
No homebrew = no HBT board...

I'm basically disappearing like Marty McFly's family without SA.

That being said, I rarely drink it now. But I love those glasses.

Fair enough, you're talking about the people that just dump on the whole brewery. That's a valid point. It just always rankles me the people that insist that you can't offer criticism unless you can do better. Consumers know what they like and what they don't, it's not necessary to make a similar product to know what you don't like and why. Cheers, man.

You know, honestly I haven't been much of a fan of SA and I say I don't like their Boston Lager, but truthfully I haven't had it in years. I saw their summer pack at Costco yesterday, think I'll pick it up next time I'm in and give it an honest try (except Cherry Wheat, which I really can't stand, but my wife likes).

Boston Lager is a great fall back beer to me. Noble Pils is good, as is some of their seasonals(Octoberfest/Honey Porter/Winter Lager/etc).

I don't get this at all. I don't find any of their beers very hoppy at all. My biggest complaint with Latitude 48 is thats its too malty and doesnt have enough hops.

Everybody has a different palette though i suppose.

I am puzzled by this as well.

It isn't my favorite IPA, but unless you don't like run of the mill IPA's, what gives?

Like others, SA was one of my gateway beers into craft beer. It wasn't tremendously interesting or complete swill. However, over the past year or so every time I've tried a SA beer it has been terrible. I know SA is contracting out a lot of brewing but they are really failing on the QC. No flavor or bad flavor every time. I've given up buying any of their beers.

If you think Boston Lager is too hoppy, you ought to just avoid any beer from Stone. Or really, most craft beers...
