Thanks and cheers!


Craft Beer Getting a Cable TV Spotlight

We've been hearing stuff lately about some Craft Brewers being involved in some shows for Cable TV.  Dogfish Head and Harpoon are just a couple that are currently being spotlighted.  Check out some of the stories we've attached links to below and give us your thoughts.  Personally, we here at the Beer Coasters Podcast belive that this could be great for the Craft Beer Industry and Community.  Listen to the "Farmhouse Ales" show, check out the links below and chime in!  Cheers!

Craft Brewers Using AB For Distribution

What do you think about small Craft Breweries using large Corporations like Anheuser Busch for distribution?  Some of the breweries in question are members of the Craft Brewers Alliance out of Portland, OR.  Kona, Redhook, Goose Island and Widmer Bros. just to name a few.  Some people have accused these breweries of "signing a deal with th devil", while others see it in a much moe positive way.  There are even talks of stripping these craft brewers of they're "craft" title for this very reason.  Check out a few of the links provided, give us you thoughts and we'll use them on an upcoming show.  Cheers!
