id think that although itd go past craft brewery 'standards' if it sticks to its roots it could at least use 'craft style' which may be a totally different grouping.

The Brewer's Association will adapt the definition of craft brewery to accommodate BBC (like they have in the past).

eh, "craft brewery" is just an arbitrary moniker. there are only breweries, big or small; some of them make great beer, some just good beer, and some make beer even I wont drink.

I can understand people not wanting the big guys' hands in on the crafts, but as long as they don't substitute quality ingredients with crap just to save a penny, I feel it's ok if the big guys have a share. If nothing else, their marketing will help expose more people to quality beer, not the watered down frat party beer.
