I'm not defending either one, just stating observations. As I've said in a previous post I saw some Batch 19 and thought it was something new until I saw Coors hidden on the label.

Something which sucks is that corporations don't necessarily have to put their name on every label if something is operated under a different company name. For example, Disney owns numerous film production companies which operate under different names. Its been found that a lot of pornographic film companies are owned by Disney. But obviously the Disney name is not attached, it would be bad for PR. But if Indie films suddenly became the popular thing to watch, I wouldn't be surprised if Disney started shooting movies that appeared to be Independent using new company names.

Nothing against the large corporations. If they brew something great then by all means I'd drink it. I just haven't found that they brew much that I like...

I was responding to this.

Quote:
AB and InBev seem to have some very nefarious business practices. I don't like their sneaky tactic of claiming that some beer they own is made in a little brewery when in fact it's brewed at their AB brewery. That's lying pure and simple.

Miller-Coors, though a large business, especially now, doesn't seem to have those business practices, and I don't have a problem buying their non typical American lagers. They got that big by buying out the little guys who saw large stacks of cash as more important than brewing their beers. That's business I suppose...
It seemed to say that INBEV was deceitful while SABMiller wasn't. Just not true.

I can't claim to know much, but from what I saw in the movie, AB was doing things that aren't right. MillerCoors wasn't shown in the same light. I haven't heard of them using their brewery to make a fictitious brewery's beer so as to get those who wouldn't buy their products could be duped.

They also showed the difference between the way the companies treated their employees.

People who say "If I like it, I'll buy it" are really simply saying "Ethical, political, social, community and other values don't factor into my consumption decisions." That's a perfectly valid position. Not everybody thinks that way and theirs, too, are valid positions. Is there anything else to this tempest in a brew kettle, really?
