Sam Adams will always hold a special place in my heart, as it was the first craft beer I got into while in college. But there are soooooooo many better American beers than SA (their non-specialty stuff anyway). You should try more

You're probably right. I'm not a huge alcohol drinker, so my tastes are limited. I like Blue Moon. I mostly just hate the primary American beers, like Bud, Coors, Miller, and their off-brands like Pabst and Milwaukee's Best.

The best place to get beer is local microbrews. You can't beat the quality.

I spent the first 22 years of my life in Michigan. Family is there. I still consider it home. I pimp Michigan craft beers pretty hard here in Chicago. Bell's, Founders, Jolly Pumpkin, New Holland, Right Brain, Dark Horse, Arcadia, Short's. A lot of great breweries.
