if you personally want to put restrictions on who you buy from, saying you only want to buy from "small brewers" that is absolutely your right. and i guess you could quantify what a "small brewer" is to you. but for people to criticize breweries for not wanting to remain small is silly. if i owned a brewery i would want to get my beer out to as many people as i could as long as quality doesn't suffer. if quality does suffer than i think the complaints would be justified. we quickly are getting into an area where we are eating our young here.
