Sell Out? Get Burned!

Beer Friends

A few months ago, there was a Serious Eats article about the benefits of craft breweries selling out to macro beer companies. While we have our own feelings about breweries that sell out, we thought it would be better to read from a Blog Post by Modern Times’ Jacob McKean that sums up our feelings, as well as adds the small business and brewer’s perspective that we don’t have. Jacob refutes a lot of the points in the article and brings up some larger systemic problems with these kinds of buy outs. We finish with a discussion about what the future holds for the craft beer movement and how these brewery purchases will shape it. Grab a pint and join the conversation on facebook, twitter, or email us.
