    Guess what I won't be drinking any more of...not that I was that big of a fan of their styles anyways.

    Yeah, I wasn't much of a fan, but it's a little sad nonetheless. Having said that, I do understand it.

    I like some of their beers just fine for what they are, but their versions of classic styles were never on a par with the "real thing" IMO. Around here they've been as ubiquitous as Sam Adams for over a decade, though, so I suppose it was inevitable that a mega would eventually make them an offer they couldn't refuse.

    their flagship Fat Tire is a decent Amber Ale but not "great" by any means. The Ranger IPA is ok, but in general they never made anything that caused a "wow" from this house
    Why is it whenever someone mentions an artist that was clearly progressive (yet not the Symph weenie definition of Prog) do certain people feel compelled to snort "thats not Prog" like a whiny 5th grader?

    The Asheville NB taproom has some pretty good beers. I would not jump to conclusions that they are going down. Not clear to me that buy outs of larger craft makers have made a big difference. I think the intellectual property of some are being used in some mainstream breweries like Budweiser. Lagunitas has not changed much since InBev bought them.
