What's interesting to me is the evolution of the argument.
At first, BIG BEER had crappy, not tasty beer. Craft had the tasty stuff.
Lately, BIG BEER bought smaller operations, so you can buy tasty beer that's kind of big corporate beer. So now the argument has shifted to the fact that your friendly local brewer is a better neighbor, paying taxes, employing a few folks, maybe starting a community volunteer program.
Where it gets interesting is when the big guys fund the little guys, and let them run their own stuff. Not to put too fine a point on it, but our host is an example. After the big buyout, I kind of fretted, but the service around here is still top notch. It sounds like breweries that got bought out are kind of still given some autonomy, so stuff gets weird.
