Wow, I completely disagree with the author of that article. It stated although the big three probably wouldn't be interested, Sam Adams might be.

All I can say is: I hope not. I'm a huge fan of Sam Adams and not such a fan of Rolling Rock. I think the company would be a huge drain on Sam Adams and hurt the company's reputation. I suppose there's always the idea that Sam Adams could make Rolling Rock better, but I don't think that would happen.

the declining sales might be attributed to the low calorie pee they've been brewing.

i have an extremely rich ex-uncle-in-law in latrobe (we're talking the b-word)
i wonder if I can convince him to buy it and let me be the brewmaster.



i doubt it

From what I'm told, Latrobe brewing co is downstream from a water treatment plant and Three Mile Island. Yikes.
