I enjoyed it, as usual, Denny. I also reviewed some of the posted links relating to the whole craft beer scene and I found those to be very interesting and insightful. The effects of the large conglomerate acquisitions are rippling through the industry as each brewery is acquired. Battles for taps and shelf space continue to be waged daily (with market power making it a pretty unfair fight in favor of the big guys); I hope the little guys can hold out, but I think Drew may be onto something in terms of a shift in paradigm away from the mid-sized brewers...and the analogy to restaurant lifecycles and their geographic markets/marketing seems very likely to become the case for craft brewing (however that may ultimately be defined).
Keep up the good work!
