Samuel Adams

The other night after work my wife wanted to get a pizza for dinner. We stopped at our favorite local place that makes a nice pie, nothing special about it, just a nice basic pie. As we live in a college town there are a bunch of pizza places and these guys are the best. Maggie said get soem beer as well. This being a college town place they have all sorts of six and 12 packs of stuff I have no desire to even think about drinking.

But amid all the college student drek beer, they also sell Sam Adams. And I got a six pack and I had a good beer with my pizza.

My point to this little story is how amazing it is what they have been able to achieve. To make really good beer and get it distributed to places that may only have Miller Lite or Bud.

I don't live far from some micro breweries and have access to lots of great beer. But when I walked into the pizza place it was good to know that my backup plan did not have to be something I don't care to drink

I'm a big fan of Sam Adams.

I only get it while I'm actually in Boston, so it's nice to go back and relive the memory. Have you tried the Utopias? Potent and delicious. And I like the other seasonal brews from The Boston Beer Company.

I just saw a new Blackberry Witbeer...

Sam Adams was the first beer I ever tasted, when I was, um, 21...that didn't taste like crap. I was hooked (in a good way) since then.

I'm not a fan of Sam Adams, though I can appreciate that people like it, it's high quality stuff.

I happen to feel the exact same about Yuengling. It's my go to "popular" beer, that I can find in the most generic of places around here. It's what I buy kegs of for my barbecues, and serve to a bunch of Bud Lite and Corona fans, and I love it for that.

      I've read a few allegations and disputes in the American craft brewing news about macho "bro"  culture, in recent months.
       
      Now the Scottish brewery whose PR quickly capitalised on Boris Johnson's senior advisor Dominic Cummings travelling from London to Barnard Castle for a claimed eye test, (while everyone else was in lockdown and the elderly were dying in care homes) swiftly launched a beer to celebrate such hypocrisy called  'Barnard Castle Eye test' https://www.brewdog.com/uk/barnard-castle-eye-test 
       
      This week however former and current employees signed an open letter highlighting the companies array of low quality manoeuvres all in the name of their Espirt de Corps "Beer, People and Planet....

      It seems that the legendary traditional appearance and accoutrements of witches may have actually risen because they were conjuring up beer rather than malign entities from beyond.

      Picked this up this morning, not because I wanted it, just to add to my collection of silliness.
       

       
       
       
      Love the brewery's honesty in their choice of name.
       
      My only question is "Why? I mean "Why?'" (to be uttered in a tone of despair).
       
      It tastes like some one had a glass of grapefruit juice with breakfast and then forgot to wash the glass before pouring a beer hours later.

      500 years ago, Martin Luther started off the Reformation. In a way, this not only changed religious affairs in Europe, but also changed our beer.
