Drink what’s good, according to you. I have some shitty breweries, but some good ones. I have a few awesome beer stores, and a lot of meh... Seek and destroy, my friend. It’s about being local, but having your local output what’s good so if it’s bad, be honest and vocal about it. Negative feedback is positive feedback for an adaptive business.

Buffalo area is weak, although Community Beer Works is changing that. I just find stuff from other parts NY, PA, OH, or MI. Can’t go wrong with that.

Support the local breweries that are good. Don’t support the local breweries that suck. I fail to see a dilemma here.

It is one thing to enjoy supporting local and/or small business. I do.

It is quite another to actively give your money to a company that doesn’t satisfy your needs as a customer.

Ultimately, you always have to vote with your dollar. If you don’t vote for better beer, you’ll get stuck with what you have for a long time.


Yep, most GA beers are complete garbage.

If Burnt Hickory ever gets bigger, they will have a chance to be the best in GA.

I don’t care where a beer came from as long as it is good. Why on earth should I care more about my local brewer? All breweries are local to someone. Make good beer and I will drink it. Make crappy beer and I don’t care how close to me it was brewed I am not going to waste my time with it.

I drink beer in Denmark, for half the price. :)

Easily 90% of what we drink at home is as local as you can get: homebrewed.
