I purchased some SA Oktoberfest beer after someone suggested it was decent. It was meh. Maybe they found a good use for it.

You can order any burger with the pretzel bun. I suggest you do this.

Really?  I'm not a beer drinker anymore, but SA was my favorite Oktoberfest beer by far.  In terms of readily available beers you could get at Costco.

It comes with your choice of toppings...

Try the SA Double Bock. I like it quite a bit.

What? You don't like $10 hamburgers that don't even taste like beef, and are all cooked well done no matter how you order them?

At Planet Hollywood they're $13 but at least they have movie memorabilia to look at.

I've had it, not NEARLY enough hops in it to qualify as a "beer"
 
2012-09-11 05:49:21 PM
I don't usually drink Sam Adams but when I do it's Octoberfest. Not a bad fall beer.

/I know all you hipster beer snobs are going to say "nooooooooooo that isn't a specialty microbrew with 500 million tons of hops in it" but all your ironic mustaches are stupid so your arguments invalid.

I haven't had it this year, but word from my friends is that it sucks this year.

Oh, and as for the milkshakes, they're not necessarily a bad idea. I've had Guinness-flavored ice cream and that was meh, but virtually everything Ben and Jerry's mixes with liqueur turns to gold. Haagen-Dazs Bailey's Irish Cream flavor is the one ice cream flavor in the world I miss more than any other. Adult milkshakes are a thing, although they are usually inspired by cocktails, not beers.

But I sure as shiat am not going to go out of my way for this.

Hey, dude. If you want to pay $10 for a sh*tty hamburger made with sh*tty, low-grade beef, I'm not going to stop you.

If liking good food at a reasonable price makes me a hipster, so be it.

Had a couple from a tap Friday. It was all right. Wasn't the greatest thing ever but it was a long way from sucking.

In my experience mixing alcohol with sugar causes massive hangovers. But maybe that's me. I'll stick to dry vodka martinis.

I haz a sad every time I think about that movie. It was so close to being a classic but it just couldn't do it.

David S. Ward couldn't hit a homer like The Seer could.

I used to like Red Robin a lot more, but they changed something in how they cook their burgers about 4-5 years ago and it's never been as good since.

Screaming brats and crappy food. Red Robin may not be the worst place, but it'll do.

Had some Spaten Oktoberfest at the weekend. Magic!

Can't imagine that Sam Adams would compare favourably, but I'd be interested in hearing the opinion of BierFarkers.

Same here, with free birthday burgers and stuff we go there a few times a year. Last time though we were seated next to some real landwhales who i think each got their own appetizer, full sized burgers (which they immediately pulled the veggies off of) and i think the table had a few pitchers of milkshakes. I didnt even know you could get a pitcher... and they were just shoveling the food in their mouths. The one lady in the scooter had sauce all down the front of her shirt.

We pretty much lost our appetites, got chicken sandwiches, diet cokes, no refills on the fries and took a long walk after.

I think we may have a free burger on one of our cards though, may have to try one of these beer-shakes.

Haha, so true. They have the unique ability to make every burger - despite the various toppings - taste exactly the same (bad).

Interesting. I haven't been to one in ages, so there you go. No brats at the one I used to go to though. I always thought their food was fine, a hell of a lot better than other chains.

Regular old Sam Adams lager is great. Every other gimmicky beer they make sucks. I wish they would give it a rest. Cherry wheat? Harvest Pumpkin? Fark that.

Their bonfire something smoked something beer tastes like band-aids. And i like Leines shandy more than Sam Adams porchraddler or whatever. Although Leines has been phoning it in the past few years too...

I feel like the quality of SA Octoberfest has diminished from previous years. Same with the Summer Ale.
 
2012-09-11 06:48:56 PM
Red Robin really is overpriced and mediocre.

Any other farkers working in the Chesterfield valley ought to try The Hangar bar and grill. Their burgers are great.
 
2012-09-11 06:49:19 PM
I limit my drinking very severely. On the rare nights when I have to stay overnight for work I allow myself one small beer with dinner.

Sam Adams Oktoberfest pushes me on that limit. I do change it to one large glass of beer. But it is very difficult to not order another.

But I don't want it in milkshake form.

I tried one the other day... it was pretty good, actually.

They changed corporate owners. My biggest complaint is they took the chili off the menu.

Red Robin is where I go now that I don't go to McD's or BK anymore.

I think the critics of that movie forgot about the content of the actual books. In one of them, at a party someone paints a target on the drop drawers of Angel's long johns. And I'm pretty sure there was some homosexuality driving that target painting.

I found it to be quite good. "Decent" is a very good description of it, imho.
Of course, I also find Red Robin to be "decent", if unspectacular.
