It's no wonder the interwebz can cause revolutions in five countries...

So random dude writes an unsubstantiated blog titled "WAS Brewmasters killed by big beer?", and it's turned into Budweiser killing the pope.

The problem I have with buying BMC craft beers is that they dominate the distribution channels and also tie up all the space on store shelves that should otherwise be shared equally with other brewers. I mean when 90% the shelving in the beer section is BMC and only a bit is left over for regional craft beers I feel like I am missing out on some variety.

All these anti-BMC threads today are making me want to get a sixer of Bud on the way home. I haven't had a Bud in awhile and I have no problem saying I like it.

It's a good fishing beer, as I reminded myself last Sunday. I think I might feel awkward sipping craft beer in a canoe.

I'm not anti-BMC, I just like having more than one or two options.

It would be more accurate to replace "might" with "would".

I dislike BMC. I'll state that openly and proudly. HOWEVER, on the Beer Wars cancellation, Revvy is spot on. It makes far too much business sense to piggyback off what little success the show did generate. Plus, that show provided to advertisers something that few can: an extremely targeted demographic that is constantly in the market for your product.

The truth is, there just isn't much of a devoted audience who would follow Sam's
"adventures" regularly. Most of us love it because we know about the beer process. Seeing a close-up tour of an exotic brewing process gets us going. But for most, it's no different than any other manufacturing process.

I know big beer manipulates, threatens, bribes, and lies, but they're not stupid. This move wouldn't be smart.

I cant drink Budweiser or Bud light. Both of them give me a headache everytime I drink them while I am drinking them.

After reading this thread I am thinking it could be a conspriacy of some mind controlling substance in their beer that is trying to take over but my subconsious is fighting it.

That would totally make sense and solve this age old problem ive had for years. Thanks HBT!

I drink a lot of different beers. If a large corporation makes a beer that I like, I'll buy it. However, if both a local craft brewery and a large corporation make a similar beer that I like, I'd go for the craft brewery every time. I hate going to the grocery store and knowing that there are 5 beers on the three 30 foot shelves that are not made by AB Inbev or MillerCoors, so I avoid them when I can. I figure with the amount of beer I buy the stores will notice that the shelves are always empty and maybe give those beers a bit more shelf space.
