Have you heard the news? AB-InBev bought L.A.’s Golden Road Brewing.
As expected, some GRB customers are OK with, and even happy about the deal.
From the GRB Facebook page:
And even more people (or just a vocal minority) are pissssssed:
This is the 5th brewery that AB has purchased. The others being Goose Island, BluePoint, Elysian, and 10 Barrel. And it’s not just AB writing checks. In 2013, Belgium’s Duvel Moortgat bought Boulevard Brewing in Kansas City, MO. GRB certainly won’t be the last.
