Corona/Constallation Brands offer to buy Ballast Point

Just in case you have not heard. Maybe we can start a discussion on the topic. Which ones have "worked" and which ones have not.

I think Goose Island worked.

agreed on goose island but was goose island anywhere as good as ballast point ?

If it brings more grapefruit sculpin to my neighborhood at a lower price at the same quality I would be happy I guess.

Conservatism is not about leaving people behind. Conservatism is about empowering people to catch up, to give them tools at their disposal that make it possible for them to access all the hope, all the promise, all the opportunity that America offers. - Marco Rubio

With that offer they may just forego the IPO.

I think the thing with Goose Island was/is that the new owners took over and scaled up the "popular" Goose Island beers, and let the original guys keep making other very good, but limited volume beers. Not sure who does what in which brewery, but it seems like that worked for everybody.

Per Kevin, some of these are very good. They also seem to fly under the radar screen to some degree.

Hopefully they just take the company and leave the infrastructure in place to keep the production the same.


Hopefully
