Default Beer News

Maybe we can use this thread to keep track of the goings on in the Beer world. Seems like everyday there is some tidbit of news that affects someone/somewhere who enjoys a cold one.



Great Divide Brewing Pulls Out of 4 States and 2 Regions:

Quote:
We are pulling out of MI, RI, DE and CT due to our exponentially increasing orders. Additionally, we are pulling out of DC and southern and central VA. While we are excited to see this massive growth, we simply do not have the production capability to keep up with these orders. We appreciate the loyalty that our customers have shared with us in these states and hope to be back in the future.

I like the idea and that sucks that GD is pulling products from those states. I hope they don't pull more states from New England because I absolutely LOVE Yeti!

I wonder if we are going to see more and more of this.

Some breweries seem to be handling it proactive though, like Cigar City. They have been approved for GA but are not going to ship until they can figure out demand issues in their current markets.

Yep, and some like GI turn to AB for help, for better or worse.

It is definitly unusual to see a company pull out of an area because of to high a demand for product.

They must not have gotten very far into Michigan. I've never seen it anywhere.

My logic could be wrong, but the way I see it is this:
Would you rather ship low quantities to 10 states and have it move quickly thus creating inadequate supply for the quantity demanded or supply only 5 states with an adequate supply in order to satisfy demand.


Either way it's disappointing for those states that are longer receiving GD products.

**I was using arbitrary numbers just to make a case**

I agree with you there. Its just pretty uncommon in todays day and age. Either companies are pulling out due to lack of business or they forgo quality to try and capitalize on that demand.

It may unusual business wise, but with the craft beer market becoming more highly competitive it would be detrimental to their business to start producing a lower quality product. Customers are becoming more aware of what quality is and with user review sites ratings being posted as advertisement on shelves it is very important that the beers continue to deliver.

Not so much new about beer, but a cool offer from a brewery...

Southern Tier is giving away a free blue spruce with every 422 six pack purchase on earth day. 422 is a great lawnmower beer, and I like trees. Too bad I don't live closer to the brewery or I'd be knocking down an old fence and planting a row of blue spruces.

That sucks that y'all lost DFH and Great Divide. Let me know if there is anything you are ever looking for (under 14% stupid GA) and I'll see what I can do.

They are pulling distribution to four states and exports to the UK and Canada. The states are Tennessee, Rhode Island, Indiana, and Wisconsin. They also said they'd be limiting distribution of some of their beers, which I guess means the limited stuff will be more limited (geographically).

Speaking of DFH... Supposedly "Big Beer" killed the Brewmasters show threatening to pull ads.

Well I'm out of the loop. Ouch 14% limited, no WWS for you guys No 120 minute either....brutal.

I never had Great Divide, I don't think it was ever here so no loss there for me. DFH is probably my favorite brewery so that sucks. The liquor store said they were saving their last DFH brews for the regulars (obviously this includes me). Everyone else gets the "we don't have anymore". I'm still sure they will be out in the next few months, hopefully if I have some extra $$$ I can snag a case.

Either way though very $hitty. Worst news I've heard in quite a bit.
