If your first foray into craft was a Trafalgar, or any of the other beers that have been described here as drain pours, it would probably have been your last. You may not even realize if something was off, just that you didn't like it and go back to your tried and true.

Brewers like Stone and even Sierra Nevada have a point, and have high quality. SN is awful big too. Dogfish Head got somewhat bigger, and ceased having a point not because of scale but because of embracing mediocrity.
Being a small brewer doesn't make your beer interesting or even that good, unfortunately.
