Founder's is my favorite brewery and their All-day IPA is my goto. As long as it doesn't affect the quality or taste of their beer its pretty much a moot point for me.
I see this as totally different from the 10 Barrel topic and it doesn't bother me at all.
So, what happens when InBev acquires San Miguel? Is Founder's still your favorite brewery?
The bigger breweries get, the more mergers are going to happen, the more breweries InBev is going to acquire.
In this case, they'll still only own 30%, so I guess my answer would be yes, not because of who the investors are but because they make my favorite products. If the product quality stays the same, the investors could be nazi war criminals and it wouldn't bother me.
bother me about mergers and acquisitions like 10 Barrel is when the new company takes over and changes everything just for the sake of "making it their own."
There have been way too many instances where a huge company like in-bev has purchased a brewery, then shutdown the business, fired all the employees, sold off the equipment and real estate and just slapped the acquired brand on some mass-market product that has nothing to do with the original.
