    Need to cut product in primary markets to take on distro to Kodiak Island and Guam.

    In all seriousness, my area saw lower allocations last year in favor of every grocery store having it. Could be happening all over - sounds very Goose Island to do

    Infection or screwing over local bottle shops. Whatever it is, ABinbev is really fucking up BCBS at a rapid pace.

    But... nothing changes when there is a buy out. People keep telling me that so it must be true?

    GI was bought out in 2011.

    If I had it my way, GI's distro would revert back to 2009, screwing over most of the country so I could buy a case. NC wouldn't be getting much. Don't even ask about Australia.

    I will forever be far more annoyed with the over thought corporate marketing-y bottle format change than the infection scandal. The beer will be fixed, but these stupid fucking bottles aren't going anywhere.

    Yeah the idea that it's ABInbev's fault that the beers got infected is hilarious.

    Haven't the barrel house masters left GI since the buy out occurred?

    I was thinking it was a skill/experience thing as opposed to the actual beer.

    oh, hmm, I don't actually know. Point taken though you may have wanted to say all of that instead of just generalizing blame on AB especially seeing as how GI was 30% by them since 2011.

    Can we assume this is because they deemed the barrels infected cause of last year?

    Just not taking any chances?

    annoying redesign of bottles to make $.002 more per oz... end up refunding retail price on about half of the entire year's products. Thanks Obama.

    I see the makings of an epic ice cream BCBS float.

    On a practical level, I prefer smaller formats, but I think the bigger bottles look amazing.

    Wifes ice cream, my beer. We don't share the same tastes.

    That's a fine looking carrot. Certified organic I presume?

    I've moved most of the recent discussion to this thread as it generally was shifting to discussion of the 2016 release, even if a few posts in there did reference the 2015 infection.
