Analysis

It?s important to understand that the beer market in the US was very different in 1985 when compared to today. Most everyone?s vision of beer was light, fizzy lager. Beers like Sam Adams Boston Lager were considered to be strange by many. On more than one occasion have I been saved by a cool bottle of Sam Adams Boston Lager in a bar that offered primarily uninspiring brews. For that I am forever grateful!
