    Once they stop paying the small guys huge amounts of money for their beer, so basically never.

    Re: AB InBev consumes Goose Island

    I liked Goose Island as well...
    I suppose if they don't mess with the quality and etc and it instead helps the pricing or whatever, I don't think I have any issues with it. (other than a corporate monster gobbling up another small company)

    Dangit, I love 312. Hopefully AB does not mess with it too much.

    They won't "mess" with it. They will just start putting Shock Top swill in the 312 bottle and sell it.

    Re: AB InBev consumes Goose Island

    I like shock top much better than 312, but the wife prefers 312.

    Here is a good editorial about it...

    Goose Island is Cooked by Anheuser Busch Aleheads

    I like the point the article makes about large and growing "craft" breweries just wanting to keep growing and growing. A lot of people in Ft Collins worry that New Belgium has gotten "too big" and lost some of the traits of a real craft or micro brewery, and I think there's lot of truth to it.

    I can understand always wanting to grow. Who doesn't want to make more money. But I think it's almost exactly like the "Social Network" dilemna: when, if ever, do you sell out and cash in, because as soon as you do that, it's not cool anymore.

    I've been through "special" tours at AB. They have full capability of making great beer at mass quantity. I've had Budweiser before its last stage in the brewing process, and it's fabulous. Then they water it down, because that's how they make more money. They'll cut costs on Goose Island beers, and it will not be the same.

    This is essentially what happened to Rolling Rock. Another beer ruined by AB.
