I saw the movie Beer Wars for the first time last night. They make a pretty good argument that the BMC's produce multiple nearly indistinguishable products for the purpose of dominating shelf space. The intent is to force out the small breweries. Youíre right. I canít say that Sierra Nevada wouldnít do the same thing if they had the resources, but they donít.

The question isnít how I would know this, but how you would not. Observation and commons sense go a long way.

My brother-in-law brought me back a few SNPA a week before christmas from his trip to San Diego. My first time drinking one.
Great beer IMO.
I now have some reminder of a taste to compare my own and that of others to.
My next brew will be a clone that followed the clone I did last week. I love it.

We should be standing on the shoulders of giants, not taking a crap on them.

But if we don't stand on their shoulders we could not crap on a giant (Unless we had a helicopter or something)
