This week we discuss the ever-changing landscape of craft beer as we see one brewery sold at auction and another close its doors. Last week Smuttynose Brewing Company was sold at auction to The Provident Bank; we look at how they got to this point and what their place is in the current craft beer climate. Then we talk about the closure of Saratoga Brewing and what that means for some of their contracts. Specifically, a Brooklyn craft brewer trying to make a name for themselves in the New York City Craft Beer scene. Finally we wonder if the term “Craft Beer” has a place in today’s culture , or if we need new terms for what defines the beer we drink.
