    Default I found out why Sam Adams beers went to ****

    They started outsourcing their brewing a few years ago.

    I have never been the biggest Sam Adams fan, the Boston Lager was ok, I did used to really like their Summer Ale and their black lager is still my favorite beer by them. But it does explain somethings. I do know other posters here (I think AZ and Psychopuck) also noticed how crappy the Summer beer especially has been the last few years.


    **** you Sam Adams for going the cheap route!

    They outsourced a lot from when they first went nationwide. They were using Pittsburgh Brewing Co. 10 years ago, so I don't think it is anything new. But it may have grown with all the different brews thay now offer.

    I gave up Sam Adams when I discovered the Gordon-Biersch resteraunt/brewery in Burbank. Best beers I've ever had.

    With all due respect....really? I know every one's taste buds are different but I don't get Gordon-Biersch, at all. I hold it in slightly higher regard than BJ's but would still pick Sam Adams over any of their beers.

    I've never been a big fan of Sam Adams, but would rate it higher than Gordon-Biersch. But then I don't hate on BJs as much as a lot of people here.
