I still like Sam Adams BL, but getting it "fresh" is getting more and more difficult. Only the fresh bottles taste like the old days. I'm not about to go argue with a store or department manager anymore... it would probably end up on youtube
I bought a sixer of NC Brown Ale a couple months back... it was at the date of best used by. What a crock. What happened to stores and or distributors pulling outdated or expired products off the shelves?
Btw... NC Brown Ale isn't made where it used to be either.
So... I only buy from certain stores now when it comes to buying beer... especially at the prices being charged these days. I mean, why go through all the aggrivation anymore... stick to what you know and works. It won't be long and we'll probably be the only sources left if stores and distributors keep treating people as if they don't really matter. I'll see you all come this fall at the Big Rock Candy Mountain.
