I'm a big fan. They brew a large number of different styles on a large scale, and they do a pretty good job of it. I've never had a single beer of theirs that I thought wasn't well made. Some may not have the flavor I'm looking for, but all their beers are pretty well done. I would drink a Sam Adams over a number of smaller craft breweries any day, and I work at a small craft brewery.

I'm not sure, but I suspect the beers you like are the ones that most here don't like.

I find most of their beers reasonable, but their cherry wheat, fruit, and Lambic beers are not their best.

I used to drink a lot of SA, loved it. The last couple years, I find it mediocre, with one exception. The SA Boston Lager on tap is still a great brew.

I'm not a huge fan. I think their Boston lager is bland and boring. Griffin's Bow is not bad, and their seasonal are mediocre at best.

I don't like the beer, but I like the theory behind their beer and that they give a mass market alternative to bmc

Boston lager is pretty good to me as well as their Oktoberfest. My wife loves their summer ale, but I'm not a big fan of that one. They make so many different varieties that there's bound to be some good and some not so good. But of course at the end of the day, all that matters is what tastes good to you.

Best nationwide brand in my opinion, by far. The chocolate dopplebock is one of my favorite all time beers.

I'd go Stone, then Sierra Nevada for my top two nationally distributed brands.

I'm a fan of their noble pils, cream stout, latitude. And boston lager is a godsend when you're in a bar that has nothing but that and BMC.
It was pretty musty bitter if that makes sense. Honestly it reminded me of the time I ate a grasshopper on a bet. Might have been mishandled but I still won't try it again. I was really impressed by the Belgian session. Easily the smoothest offering in the summer sampler. I have yet to try any spring seasonal I like from any brewery though.
