You know what's funny? I'll almost never buy a Dogfish Head beer because of the opposite reason: I think they try way too hard to be on the cutting edge with new innovative 'beers.' Now obviously this is just my personal perspective but you just don't have to release to all of America every hair-brained idea for weird adjuncts. I'm all for experimenting, but wow. What's next, an authentic Middle Eastern beer brewed with camel spit?
Sam Adams makes excellent beer - but nothing that I am ever hankering for. But a LOT of people do enjoy their beers. I think SA will continue to be a gateway beer for people moving away from bland lagers to craft beer.
So yeah, something in the middle is what I like, like what Deschutes does, or Ninkasi, or Stone, or Sierra Nevada, or...
