pretty good overall. I learned quite a bit from it. The lady that thinks she came up with caffeine in beer is annoying as hell.

i thought it was OK.

i saw it during the live movie broadcast, which had a lot of kinks. plus, ben stein moderating the discussion afterwards sucked. it was pretty obvious he didn't even watch the movie.

and it really is more about small business vs big business in terms of breweries, not craft beer vs BMC.

Yep that. I worked as a bartender for a while and had to deal with the representatives for different distributors to place orders. There is just so many loop holes to jump through to get a new brew in this state. Then you have to have it shipped in with the larger breweries supply.....its messed up for sure. Its sad that slingly money around can prohibit the small guy at the distribution level. I thought this was a monopoly free government......I guess not.

it's monopoly free, unless you grease the right pockets. you can do ANYTHING in America, as long as you give the right amount of money to the elected officials.
