    I can't imagine what she hopes to accomplish with this. I have seen quite a few people change their view of the brewery in the past months, letting go of their issues with the OG club and appreciating the beer. This does nothing but open up old wounds. Luckily the beer is far better than the PR.

    This is fucking awesome because she manages to weave together true facts and legitimate points with a bunch of non-sequiturs and complete bullshit. I can't recall a better example of someone repeatedly making a good point and then immediately undermining it.

    It's gifts like these that made me create this thread once the glorious OG thread had run its course.

    And I think some people still haven't seen the extra little tribute in the OP.

    May God Bless J Wakefield's Dysfunction.

    What provoked that response? It must've been something that hit a nerve. I didn't see anything but I know they have a habit of deleting comments they don't like.

  7. I'm so glad this thread is back to the important things. God damn. Cory's response to the Blanc de Blancs thing was the best brewer on brewer violence I've seen in months.

    Thanks. I read it. I just don't understand how anyone can call him humble. For a guy who takes great joy in the collection of C&D letters he's received from other breweries, you can call him anything you want except humble. Also, a humble brewer wouldn't smear his face on the labels of so many of the brews he makes. Humility makes the beer the star of the show, not the brewer.

    "Let Them Eat Cake" seems like something a humble man might name a beer

    His wife needs to open a fucking dictionary. That was painful to read.

    Seems like nothing came of it, beer was released to somewhat positive reviews. I think it was overshadowed by the Cafe release that happened simultaneously

    Wakefield is now distributing to South Carolina. Not sure what we're going to get, but there's a launch event next Friday in Charleston that JWB is going to be at. I'd probably check it out but I'll be on my way to Chicago for a much better event instead.

    Damn, how did they come up with those beers? It's like they analyzed a bunch of trading data from 2016 to ensure maximum shitlord appeal.

    So what were the negative complaints and comments about? And why is the instagram account private?
