    I just put down a Newcastle Brown Ale and a Sam Adams Black Lager for the first time. I enjoyed the Sam Adams much better then the brown ale, but maybe thats because i'm just a bigger fan of dark beers and like that chocolate and coffee taste. The Black Lager opened my eyes a bit though. Sam Adams makes some great beer. Ever had any of these? I'm sure alot of you have tryed Newcastle.

    I'm a fan of Sam Adams Summer Ale. Never really tried any other Sam Adams beers.

    Does Sam Adams make any good wheat beers? I'm a fan of wheat beer, especially some Boulevard Wheat.

    I like the Sam Adams Black. Good beer. I also am not necessarily a fan of Newcastle. To each his own, but Sam Adams has quite a few good brews out there. Summer Ale is awesome, as is Cherry Wheat. Those are my go-to picks (along with Leinie's Summer Shandy when I can get it!).

    Sam Adams Coastal Wheat is my favorite of theirs. I'm sure you can find better wheat beers out there though.

    If you liked the Newcastle, you may enjoy Old Speckled Hen. About $13 for a sixer, but good stuff.

    Sam Adams may just be my favorite brewery. Most beer they make is legit, except for their Cherry Wheat...

    Most people I've talked to don't like Sam Adams and they are very underrated! They do however win international awards to back themselves up, but Americans can't even enjoy a "real" beer that is made in America. When I have Sam Adams Brown Ale and I offer it to a friend and they respond "naw, I'll take a Keystone" it worries me about our beer knowledge. My generation has been ruined for beer drinkers, most of my friends prefer Lite beer over any other beer and I, myself, don't even consider Lite beer, beer at all (because it isn't).

    It worries you? Seems a little bit dramatic..
