Coors being sued for not brewing all beer in CO
« on: February 29, 2016, 02:45:45 PM »
Sierra Nevada better watch itself now that it's brewing in North Carolina. ;)

I love how this piece of crap "would have bought a cheaper beer had he known Coors Light was not brewed exclusively in the Rockies."

Edit - corrected to NORTH Carolina and added a winkey face to better communicate my attempt at applying humor to a ridiculous story.

Ha! I love when I see a Coors commercial and they give the impression that it is brewed high in the rocky mountains far from civilization. I work in Golden a few blocks away from Coors. Although a great city, Golden is not in the mountains...

His competency should be questioned because of his choice in beer in the first place.

At an elevation over a mile, I wouldn't call Golden a valley.

I was there 2 years ago for a wedding.  I spent a couple of days in Golden.  A very nice town, but I had to tell my family about 17 times, "No I don't want to tour the Coors facility."

These kinds of suits but for craft beer these lawsuits are, perhaps unintentionally, setting the stage to protect craft breweries in a big way. As craft breweries are acquired by the larger conglomerates it will only be a matter of time before they start blatantly advertising the beers brewed in bulk at large facilities as being brewed at the craft brewery's pre-acquisition locations to tap into the localness of the beers as craft brands. This is particularly probable given that ABI obtained trademarks for beer on a number of area codes to potentially sell beers that sound local, like Goose Island 312 pale ale, but brewed at one of the large brewing facilities. (I would not be surprised if 312 pale is the next to endure one of these suits.) Craft breweries that are local will be able to find sympathetic consumers willing to file suit on their behalf to force the larger brewers to be honest about where the beer is brewed (or at least that it is not brewed locally) and curbing the ability to even intimate through marketing that it is a local beer.

Even though I'm not a fan of mass-market lagers, I would certainly enjoy going through a brewery tour at any of them. It's cool to see what makes the big boys tick, even if the scale and end product aren't your cup of tea.

Sierra Nevada better watch itself now that it's brewing in South Carolina. I love how this piece of crap "would have bought a cheaper beer had he known Coors Light was not brewed exclusively in the Rockies."

It says "Brewed and Bottled by Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. Chico CA & Mills River NC" on the label.

If you are ever in Asheville NC area, the brewery is beautiful, the tour is one of the best.

It was tongue in cheek.

I've been to Chico numerous times. If Asheville is half as nice as Chico, North Carolina is lucky to have them.

Think of what they could with a clean slate and $250 million.

I toured that brewery in 1973.  I remember being impressed that there were fresh flowers in the tasting room and that there were almost no people working, just miles of conveyer "belts".
