    Accusations don't necessarily equate to guilt on the part of the accused. I suggest that we let the legal process play out before we change beers.

    btw - Dirty Bastard is one of my favorites

    Damn they make some good beer. Definitely not a good look. Plenty of other beer options out there.

    Sam Adams started selling a 15 pack session IPA that I like but I can't find it anywhere.

    In today's world, we make judgments before the legal process plays out

    I'm guessing the general public has formed rash opinions and made up their minds about someone's guilt or innocence throughout history. Good thing it doesn't matter what random people think and as you said, the legal process will play out.

    It's not as bad as I thought it would be...when I opened the thread, I was expecting to see someone suing George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, and Ben Franklin posthumously...

    We make judgments every second of every day based on what we know. In this case, I believe what the guy is saying and don't need the legal process to make a judgment for me so I will be finding my beer elsewhere.

    If they are cleared of all wrongdoing I will go back to drinking their beer until then I have plenty of other options. Just my opinion though. You can handle the news however you see fit.

    First, it was Ricketts (owner of the Cubs) supporting Kavanaugh and Scott Walker and now this. Founders is my favorite, hands down. But I can't support this sort of crap. I'll let the whole thing play out, but I won't be buying any more of their product in the mean time.

    It's ironic because I bought the 15 pack last night as it was on sale.

    Wholeheartedly agree. In a perfect world, people would withhold judgment until the investigation has been completed, but that's not human nature. Which is why protecting your reputation (individual or businesses) shouldn't be taken lightly.

    On the flip side, we shouldn't be completely dismissive of this guys' claims either. Reading the article it seems he has a case to be made.

    I don’t know what country you’re living in but the presumption of innocence is gone in today’s current climate.
