Very impressive.

I've had every Samuel Adams on your list, as well as all of the mainstreams and such. Wish I could get my hands on afew of those that you had.

A Samuel Adams Octoberfest sounds great.

You can't. You would have to order it online. Distribution is very limited.

Does it live up to its title of one of the world's top beers?

Without a doubt. If you are a fan of IPA's this is one you cannot pass up.

I personally have not. If I had more I would send you one to try but I am down to my last bottle.

The best thing to do is go on beer advocate and trade for a bottle or two. MAKE SURE IT IS FRESH, like no older than a month old.

My BeerAdvocate review for Samuel Adams Boston Lager -

(A=appearance, S=smell, T=taste, M=mouthfeel, D=drinkability)

Poured from a 12oz bottle into my Samuel Adams Perfect Pint Glass.

A: Beautiful golden amber color - great, fluffy head that lingers for quite a while. Plenty of nice lacing on the glass. I've heard that you're able to float a coin on top of the head, but didn't give it a shot.

S: Breathed in a fantastic aroma. The large amount of hops used is clearly present in the scent, nice floral and citrus notes are also present.

T: Amazing. Perfect balance of hops and malt. Full flavored with a hint of citrus note. Just the right amount of bitterness. Rich and complex - a truly fantastic experience for your palate. Like the commercial says, "Try a Sam Adams and know that's what beer is supposed to taste like." It's not hard to see why it won Best Beer in America less than a year after Jim Koch re-discovered the recipe.

M: Medium-bodied, very well rounded and smooth. Moderate amount of carbonation, finishes very clean.

D: Fantastic drinkability, and incredibly refreshing. You'll want to have another, it certainly isn't hard to drink a few of these.

Forget Budweiser - Boston Lager is the Great American Lager, and Samuel Adams is the King of Beers. If ever there were perfection in a bottle, this would be it. Thank you Jim Koch for venturing into your attic that fateful day back in 1984.

Yes,..I am from Fraser. Michigan, but I live in Seabeck, Washington,..outside of Seattle, about two hours. Micro brews are outstanding here. But, this is what I have to say about beer. It depends on what you are doing,..for me,..if I am outside doing some work on the tractor, in the barn, or in the garden, I drink the cheap stuff. Stuff like Milwaukee's Best,..it is about quench, not a taste testing event. I have been told I shouldn't drink that cheap crap, but when I ask them what would they drink, they say Miller! Miller makes Milwaukee's best,...same crap!

On the other hand,..if it is a festive event like Thanksgiving, or a festival for example,..I like something with great taste, a stout, or a porter does well.

One can never go wrong drinking a fine-crafted pilsner, or heavy ale brew either.

I grow hops on my farm just for the beauty of the flower, and there is nothing like the aroma of it either. One sniff, you want to drink a gallon of some fine brew!

Beer is just good food, no matter what style or brand it might be.

Cool, do you know what kind of hops are growing ? If I were you, I would be brewing beer with those things. Tale some pictures. I would love to see them.

Cascade Hops! As for pics, we have to wait until next year. I did brew at one time, enjoyed it but with all the animals, toys, and farm equipment I don't have the time to do so at this time. ..My wife says I have too many hobbies as it is.
