Yeah, that's 80 large of funny. Hope the brewery manages to stay in business.

Yeah, no doubt this sucks for the brewery, and it very well may be a game changer for them. However, the level of absurdity with this whole situation is humorous, and I couldn't help but laugh when I heard the story.

That really sucks! But its good to see fellow brewers helping each other out! It just goes to show the sense of community we all have as brewers!

Other breweries lending equipment? A brewery from Nebraska offering to can their beer?

This makes me quite proud of the human race.

Cheers to those guys!

Destroying property and stealing an essential asset? Sounds like somebody wants to put the brewery out of business.
