I just got my Chronical BME with the temperature regulation, and I love it! I'll be using it again in a few more days.

I have a nearly complete collection of Zymurgy and BYO, starting in the mid-90's. Like others have said, lots of info is inaccurate, especially before 2000, but I can't bear to part with them. I like the feel of paper in my hands, too. Online just doesn't cut it, and can we really be sure ezines will be available when stuff like the Zombie Apocalypse hits?
How often do you look at them? That was the deciding factor for me.
I would say (and I know that I'm in the minority on this by a wide margin) that the ongoing trend of "it doesn't matter, as long as I get the point across" only leads to lower expectations of everyone all the time. It doesn't take much more time to just try a little and make things much better. Must we always lower the bar?
(I know, I'm just a grumpy old man and should accept it and shut up)
opinions: Am I supporting AB-Inbev if I finally use up the several Northern Brewer gift cards I've won as competition prizes (it's the only thing I've won more often than my 5 Beer Guns)
Do those that are anti AB also avoid Walmart, Target, Amazon, Home Depot, Lowes, Best Buy, Total Wine, Specs, BevMo? All of those can be considered anti competition.
There has to be a strategy here, but it is not apparent to me.
Exactly where I'm at. AB doesn't do things without a reason, but I can't fathom the reason here.
I agree NB is a very large HBS but very small for InBev.What If they use their contracts to make it THE homebrew supply? Maybe NB grain prices will finally become reasonable.
Maybe I underestimate NB revenue and profit but I am thinking annual revenue less than $10M. That doesn't seem worth InBev's time or attention.
That's what I heard. Sold to their incubator.What incubator? Are we taking about the stores? Why would InBev want a relatively very small retail business for home brew supplies?

I'd skip the Poe house unless you have lots of free time on your hands... his grave is closer to downtown.
The Poe House doesn't seem that big. Does it take a long time to tour? I think it's only open on the weekends.
It's just not very conveniently located. I wouldn't walk there, personally.
