Only bought Grolsch one time.... severely skunked....never bought it again.

Still sad to see yet another brewing company get gobbled up by one of the giants.

It wasn't skunked... that's just how it tastes all the time. Grolsch fits perfectly underneath the Miller/SAB umbrella if you ask me.

The only good thing about Grolsch is the bottles anyway

Long, long time ago Grolsch came in brown bottles, it had that funky skunky taste back then too.

Why does any company put beer in anything other than brown bottles? Whenever I've purchased any beer in clear or green bottles, it's invariably skunked. Seems like a waste of time, money and effort to do so.

I word - MARKETING

Green and clear bottles look different and draw the eye from the sea of brown.

I am really suprised it hadn't already happend, I guess i just figured that Grolsch was already owned by one of the big three, so i never thought to look into it.

As for green bottles, it is really ashame that Hofbrauhaus distributes in green bottels. i have been to the one in Newport Kentucky and I think they produce some wonderful beers. I had their O-fest at the bar and it was great. Bought a sixer of it a few weeks later, Not so much, very skunked.


Cheers

Much to the detriment of their product, unfortunately.
