Maybe you should consider a post explaining exactly what it is you disagreed with.

As a Chicagoan who loves to stop by the brewery after a Cubs game that made me very sad to see them gobbled up by a conglomerate.

I am surprised to hear that Goose is selling well in Europe though. After all the brewery was started when a couple of Chicagoans went on holiday through Europe and could not find the great European style beers back in the U.S. upon their return home.

(The third was one in Milwaukee, and I don’t currently remember what it was called.)

I guess this is payback for Stella Artois, the MGD of the EU, for which Americans pay $9 a six pack.

More fascinating to me is the explosive conquest of Baltica Breweries, which dominates Eastern Europe and has a strong foothold in the US market. Their brand-averse “number” beers (particularly Baltica 3, 5, and 7) are charming classics that sell well, ship well, and are great values, and the giant version of Baltica 9 has achieved a certain grim infamy in the Midwest and Northeast.
