If you want to make more of a mark next time try his beer and then tell him how it tastes like monkey piss, who knows you make like it. Whats free is free, it's not like you are giving them money if you are that hard against them.

I agree Revvy the whole argument is a pitiful deal. Makes no real sense, I experience the same at my grocery store as far as selection, way more crafts than BMC beers. And when im gonna make a day of drinking its Labatt Blue for me......hopefully my Labatt doesnt drive craft beer out of existence.....ugh please.

I really don't care who makes the beer. If its good ill drink it, which is the reason why I don't enjoy any Inbev beers. They are a business and the reason you open a business is to make money. Some people love doing it also but if their is no profit there is no business. I do hate the fact that there are people out there that think beer is only light lagers but they haven't been exposed to the other side of things. I fell like its my job to try to educate those that are less fortunate and discover how amazing beer can be. Also loosen up man its just beer.

If you don't get my attitude, let me make it clearer for you. BMC HATES craft brews. They'll do anything in their power to put them under. Ok, so what u say. Well the problem is that they have a lot of effing money. They are continually buying craft breweries and making substandard products from what were once proud home-grown establishments. Take Goose Island for example, just follow beerpulse.com and see how many of the goose island guys have quit to work for real craft brewers. why? b/c InBev doesnt care about you AT ALL. Maybe thats fine with you, but it's not fine with me. If you follow Tony Magee, the founder of Lagunitas, u'll realize quickly what i'm talking about. BMC is trying to poison the craft brew culture, and frankly i don't like it. If they want to make american light lagers, fine, do it. but if they want to pass off substandard "crafty" products that they can distribute nationwide, i have a problem with that. None of those products proudly boast "Product of BMC". Why not? B/c they want to trick consumers into thinking it's homegrown and not mass produced by them. Wouldn't u want ur name on ur products? Sure you would, unless you were ashamed of them or trying to hide something. Maybe i'm over-reacting a bit, but when i saw it first hand today, it lit a fire under my @$$ and pissed me off. yeah im on a soap box, sorry, its a forum

I bought a 6 pack the other day that I thought was "craft" and it ended up being a coors product. I buy bud light because $12 an 18 pack is nice when I'm around pool putting em back. I think it's more a sign that they realize craft beer is becoming more popular and they want in on it. Not a bad business move, and then again I'm not anti big biz. If the craft breweries continue to put out good brews they won't have a problem. Guys like us will buy it.

I'm pissed Bell's, Dogfishhead and others have expanded their distribution to Arizona. I wish they'd just stay small and local and not sell out with nationwide distribution, increased production, and increased profits. Greedy bastids.

Still.at the end of the day the owners of those breweries are the ones selling out so maybe you should take your argument to them
