Fireside nut brown was great too. But another beer I didn't like was bud platinum. Not just because its a Budweiser product (I'm a fan of regular budwiser, and light in the summer) Platinum is just strangely sweet. I think they tried to stay too light in flavor while upping the ABV. They either need some maltyness or hops. Maybe black crown is the answer.

I bought a case of beer claiming to be "Best Beers of the World" or something like that an one of the beers was a Chili pepper beer, with an actual pepper inside... It was like drinking bud light lime with Tabasco.

Still sounds like an improvement over Bud Light though...

Fat Weasel, Trader Joe's - Sickly sweet and under attenuated
Anything from Hoppy Brewing Company, Sacramento CA
Anything from Feather Brewing Company, Magalia CA - Also way under attenuated

I'm not a fan of Goose Island's Honker Ale.

I'm not a fan of anything Brooklyn.

Carton makes a double IPA that's pretty rough. I like IPA's but DAMN!

Boddington's ale out of the can is also terrible, nothing enjoyable about it.

+1 to Brooklyn lager. I know we are supposed to like it because its from NYC but the $8 bottle from the hotel bar didn't live up to the hype

Man... I went to a small, private beer tasting once, and the guy manning the taps had a goblet of the stuff, drinking it like it was the finest beer he'd ever had. When I finally tried it, it tasted like beef bouillon. Absolutely disgusting, never been able to enjoy it since then.

heh, I'm far from hipster. Boston Lager is too heavy for a session beer (IMO of course). I don't hate, but I've always thought it was oddly heavy. A sessionable lager would be Victory Prima Pils.

I do like their Octoberfest a lot.

By craft brew standards most of SA's offering fall somewhere between average and good. Their imperial pilsner and dopplebocks are particularly excellent. Their cream stout is probably the finest example of the style I've ever tasted. Even their Boston lager would be a fine session beer.

Yes, the taste reflects the price but I don't think there's anything wrong with producing a beer that doesn't cost $8+ for a bomber or $12+ for a six pack and still calling it craft.
