Yeah I can't find it now but I was reading something about Koch's constant bleating about other breweries being sellouts; that article was as amused about it as yours.

I see a $56million settlementin the Molson/Coors lawsuit over their rebranding Keystone Light as "(key)STONE"

Did you know New Belgium got bought up by Kirin? They were employee owned; wonder how that sorts out. And Stone just sold to Sapporo. Doesn't matter as long as it's good, I guess. These buyouts do bring beer to the hinterlands so I guess I shouldn't gripe...

any link, really, and when I replied to the post, dragging to select the text in the Visual editor instead dragged that image that I posted. So it was embedded and covering everything, but invisible.

If I had any idea what I did...I probably could make a nice living selling it.  Oh well.

Didn't know that about either of them.  I guess as long as they don't mess with the recipes it's ultimately better to have wider distribution and availability.  Wicked Weed - also from Asheville - was acquired by Anheuser Busch, but it's still made the same way in the same brewery.  Very good beers though pricier than most others.
This session ale that they make is usually on sale for a week or two a month though - tasty stuff:

I haven't seen that one yet, but the Little Yella Pils is still around here - Oskar's has an "East Coast" brewery out near Asheville, NC now (as do Sierra and New Belgium).  I like that more of them a trying to do lagers, but it's not as easy as it may seem - and they can't mask the mistakes by overloading the hops.  Still, imported German pilsener for the price I paid is a good "in-between".

If I could still drink beer, it would be mostly German lagers (Paulaner was a favorite), Guinness, and an occasional IPA like Little Sumpin or Dogfish Head.
I found most craft beers to be a either too malty/sweet, heavy, or bitter...not good drinking beers.

I have a hard time spending craft brew money for what is essentially "Good Bud™©®" but I do like the trend of good breweries doing "plain" beers. Oskar Blues has had Momma's Little Yella Pils for years, and I just got a mix-pack with their Oskar's Lager that's not spectacular enough to wow the snobs but to do that they'd have to push the style limits, right? Like make it *not* a classic American lager? Anyway, I thought it tasted something like I remember beer tasting like in 1978.


Being from New England (well...almost...NJ is mid-Atlantic, but my maternal family is Northern VT), we've had a good run of NEIPA's.  It's the go-to everywhere, and there are some great ones.  That said... it's getting harder to enjoy them in the summer.  

A friend started a brewery 6 years ago, and when the pandemic hit, he and several other breweries did a version of "stimulus beer".  My recollection is that they were selling it for $3/six-pack...as one would for "stimulus" beer.  It was a hit.  A nice, light, pils.  Bud-esque, but a little bit more depth to it. It was so popular, they added it to their core rotation. I like it more and more the warmer it gets outside.

Seems like there's less call for German beers lately with all the craft brews and IPAs around.  One local bar has a good German pilsener on tap.  Warsteiner is predictably good stuff, especially on these hot days.  The local supermarket sells it for $13.99 a twelve-pack, cheaper than Becks, and the Becks they sell is brewed in the US.  I like it more than Becks anyhow - even the imported version.
