I’m holding my breath in anticipation for a Bcs halftime Super Bowl commercial and maybe some sort of wardrobe malfunction.

Right - and "if you try to follow the competition, you will forever be catching up."

Craft Beer will always be a step ahead of slick marketing, whether or not a few brands get bought up & neutered. Let it go with GI. There will always be LOTS of great beer, more every year and we will not want from scarcity.

AB InBev’s products are incidental to its margins. Unless a Craft Beer advisory board can change that fundamental way of thinking, I don’t see much changing. Same as the old boss.
