A friend of mine knew I liked Sam Adams brew (Blackberry Witbier is a favorite) and found these in a store. He sent me a picture of this and one other- and I'd never seen them. I stumbled across this one today and had a bit of extra cash in the pocket, so said "eh, what the hell."

Completely 100% worth the $10 a bottle. For a dark beer, it's not really that heavy- and it's made up of a myriad of flavors that really work well together.

Find it. Buy it. Drink it.

I don't generally like most beer, but the blueberry and raspberry (Purple Haze you gotta get it from the tap though, bottles are underwhelming) I've tried were awesome. Like drinking a muffin.

I'll have to give this one a shot, Sam Adams makes good stuff.

$10 a bottle? Holy crap.! Better be made from the fermented hymens of virgins to warrant that kind of coin.

It is significantly larger than your average Sam Adams bottle. "1 PT 9.4 OZ" - and its a specialty beer, so I didn't balk too much at the price tag. It's much more worth that price than this one was:



Same price, not as excellent.

HUGE fan of that one. It's a great brew. Wife's a fan of the Cherry Wheat, and that's really good, but the Witbier outshines that if you ask me.

One of my lady friends loves summer shandy....I want to drown her because of it.

Don't blame me, I voted for Kodos.

I do like Blue Moon which is citrusy, wouldn't have thought it was appealing until I drank it. Skeptical on blueberry though.

Sam Adams was my first beer in a restaurant when I turned 19... it wasn't that great. Is their other specialty stuff better than the regular on tap stuff?

Recently I've been enjoying the fine subtle flavors of the Fosters oil can.

wheat beers can be too sweet for me, but they are what I usually go for in the summer.  Three Floyds gumballhead is one of my favorites now.

German smoked beer -


Makes you hungry, tastes soooo smoky and good.

I wish I could have more Sam Adams selection. Only been able to find 1 or 2 kinds.

Gross.

Also, shandys are only to be drank by Aussies,or on days above 90*F, or when drinking with Aussies.

We used to have that on tap at my last restaurant. Good stuff. As for Sammy A's, I can take it or leave it. They use waaaaayyy too much hops for my taste.

If I want to drink something with lemonade, I'm going to drink an iced tea flavored vodka and lemonade.

Gumballhead is another good one I enjoy.
