That's cool. Looks like they stopped at Dave's Brew Farm.

I would add that a lot of their problem has everything to do with size. It is easier to turn a ski boat than a tanker. Organizations have inertia, politics and lazy people (and dare I say unions). It is a significant strategic advantage to be smaller when it comes to change and adaptation.It is not the unions preventing BMC from adapting, that's just silly.
In no way do I want to hijack this thread into a union pro/con debate. My only point was to say that unions do add a layer of complexity which sometimes results in delay - not that they would prevent BMC from adapting. A union has its members welfare as its primary focus. Sometimes this conflicts with the goals of the company in which they work.
And that is all I will contribute to the matter.
My local 666 union wants donuts and coffee every morning. Easy to please.
I think the point of having a light beer on tap is to have something for the non craft drinker. I think that beer bars that don't carry BMC are missing out on customers. That doesn't mean they should have more than one on tap. No when it comes to natural ice keystone etc. They are worse than Heineken or corona to me.That is why there is soda and bottled water at our tap house. I do enjoy taking tap handles away BMC (mostly Lienie's)

I disagree. plenty of smart people have made great beer and gone out of business. plenty of dumb people make bad beer and make a killing. I wish the world was fair, but it's not.
ROI's for most small businesses are negative for something like 5 years, at least. Beer is a low-margin, capital-intensive industry, so I suspect it's worse than that, on average.
However, I know of a few breweries that got crazy successful accidentally, so I guess it's kind of a toss-up between spending $1m on a brewery vs $1m on lottery tickets.
