So, as it turns out, I occasionally have some opinions, thoughts, and considerations on the world of craft brewing. Well, in case you didn’t hear, Anheuser-Busch Inbev, the multinational conglomerate that provides us such thoroughly undesirable beer-like beverages as Bud Light, Bud Select 55, and Natural Light Ice, reached an agreement to purchase Goose Island, a well-respected craft brewery from Chicago. While I’m not exactly running around screaming that the sky is falling, I did have a few thoughts on the matter. Do I consider this deal the beginning of the legitimization of the craft beer industry or personal favorite selling out to The Man? Read my latest post on Hoperatives.com to find out.
