I get it- you build your biz from the ground up, some big corporation wants to pay you some serious coin, and you're set for life- I'm not a fan of the grind anymore than anyone else- BUT you can't continue to use that local, independent craft brewery stage anymore; you're just another pawn for the big guys now ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
From @apintofhoppiness - "One of the biggest trends in craft beer is the shift to hyper-local, where small breweries are taking market share away from larger operations. Ballast Point sold out to Constellation Brands, Inc., a publicly traded company based out of New York. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Now they are trying to play the “local” card, and capitalize on it in the name of philanthropy. Saying BP is local, is the same as those stupid BudLight “Hecho in” signs AB-InBev has throughout cities in Southern California. Don’t be fooled, San Diego —support a real independent local brewery..."
We're incredibly excited to announce our newest San Diego-only release, "Made in San Diego" Golden Ale! This beer is dedicated to our hometown and the community that has supported us for over 20 years. ⠀
We've partnered with San Diego EDC (@sdlifechanging) to donate a portion of sales to San Diego startups. It's our way of honoring our hometown supporters while empowering other local business owners to pursue their passion – just like we did back in 1996.⠀
"Made in San Diego" Golden Ale is an easy-drinking Kolsch that features toasted bread aroma and flavor from Munich malt and a soft bitterness from Cascade and Mosaic hops (4.2% ABV). ⠀
Available now on draft in our Tasting Rooms, so enjoy a pint and support San Diego! For more information, visit MadeInSD.com. 🍻
Things I did today: First solo win for Fortnite, me vs 99 other people. I spent most of the round running from the storm and looking for people to fight. Sniped one guy and shotgunned 3 in a row to the face to win it lol. Finished the day off with Brew Battles Pure Project vs Black Plague brewing companies. My favorite is the Murky IPA, which I suspect is from Pure Project. #fortnite#sdbeer#commontheory#brewbattles
