I think SamC should stick to a brewer’s code of ethics and re-imburse patrons not happy that their Festina Peche when it tastes more like a Sour than the intended Berliner Weiss!

Does anyone actually expect an apology from these brewers? They make these statements to stay relevant, not because they actually believe that Anheuser is going to manipulate ratings.

Or, they react viscerally to the international conglomerate that is actively working legislatively to kill the craft industry, and clueless craft beer drinkers don’t have any concept as to the depth of ABI’s strategy to crush the industry. But keep the clueless optimism. It’s working.

Incorrect. These idiots vandalized users hard work and are riding the coatails of two bit bloggers to advertise their has been breweries for free by taking a stance against "the man" when they themselves are as bad or worse.

What DietPepsican said. Their way of thinking and action is not craft but closer to what ABI is doing. The biggest hysteria mongers did that to get attention, that’s a given. Some definitely reacted out of principle, some were 100% attentionwhoring and trying to get cred.

I didn’t even notice that RateBeer had a weekly newsletter, and I’ve been here almost every day for 10 years!

I think that applies more to the brewers who have said they will not help admins with info and recommend consumers use other sites. That I get and respect. Given Sam’s experience in and knowledge of various parts of the beer industry, his stance about journalism was really reaching honestly felt more like grandstanding.

It’s a great newsletter with good readership. It’s produced by Adam Nason of Beer Pulse who is a separate company, financially independent of RateBeer -- an architecture we created many years ago as a divide between editorial and ratings.

We only send to people who opt in and we trim the list occasionally of subscribers who don’t click or view in order to reduce costs and keep our open rates and engagement very high. Anyone can be added to the list by using using the form in the footer of any page on the site.
