    Archer was also recently purchased by a big macro. I hope Lagunitas stays true to craft as well. I read another article stating that it will be a 50/50 partnership and the main reason for sale was to make the brand global and expanding their reach. BUT i still don't buy that shit.

    Im not mad at them for making a big profit. But macro companies have been losing tons of money to craft. I just hate to see great breweries bought and butchered
