    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.

    What might be right for you, might not be right for some.

    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.
