. . . I am second to none, thankyouverymuch. This from Beervana, regarding the sale of several "craft" brewing companies.
Folks, I've been predicting this now for, what?, two years and I said then that in, oh, about two years, we'd start to see this kind of thing unfold. And, ta dah!, here we are.
God, now I sound like some smart ass douchebag know-it-all (can't resist the douchebag part; I'm reading Anthony Bourdain's new book and he uses the word in every other sentence.) Really, I'm not. Just glad to have SOMETHING good to say about myself after a long day during which I believed I knew nuthin' 'bout nuthin' specially history. Sob snurfle.
So I shall depart now to pat myself further on the back, while carefully not drinking any water because the flooding here has knocked out our water supply. So, hey, a beer will do. Or a bourbon. Or . . .
