I feel like I can run through a brick wall now. Thanks, Bangs! Is there any way we can give him a complimentary ratebeer membership?

This sucks! We all hate BMC for not satisfying our sophisticated and discerning palates. Now B is forming a craft advisory board with a credible craft brewer. If they start addressing MY needs as a consumer, I知 done!

Yeaaa I think you are missing the point here. The disdain isn稚 because they are forming a craft advisory board, it is because they attempt to crush craft breweries we love through tons of borderline ethical tactics. At least that is it for me.

I doubt they are addressing your,mine or anyone on this sites "needs".
They are trying to figure out how to stop the increase in craft brews and increase the sales of their weak assed copies.
Thats about it..and John Hall well he will get rich.

I love this post.

Craft is here to stay. The big companies are adapting by adding craft brewers to their portfolios and trying to put something on the market that people like us want. They can稚 end it.. they have to embrace and try their hand proper else they値l be left behind.
