    I see it lasting... I mean treehouse has been doing it for what four years and they can't even keep up? Trillium etc. I enjoy the beers so I hope they do, they are accumulating hype like crazy around my neck of the woods now which is annoying but what do I expect

    I had this beer a few weeks. It's as clear as a lager and probably less hoppy than most beers.

    I have no idea what they are going for.

    The best product I've ever had from Petoskey Brewing is an olive burger.

    Went to a Starcut Ciders/Melt My Brain sampling from Joe himself. I sheepishly asked him about Mmkay, expansion of canning etc. He mentioned that he does not care for haze, but noted that his scientists had figured out methods to do haze the correct way. lol Slurm, Slurm Lord, Hazy Controversiale and Gary Juicy are likely Joe Short a. allowing his employees to experiment b. grabbing that sweet cash flow before the next craft beer buzz.

    So sad, to me, how much they have declined in only 2 years.

    And now they sold a 20% stake to Lagunitas.

    Joe Jr.'s 529 plan is now fully funded.

    Getting paid though! I honesty still love going there. The beer was great last week, food is crazy good. I don't get what has become of their bottles. Strange.

    The reply from the Short's dude on BA:

    We couldn't do a direct likeness of faces due to trademark issues. The Nolte style hair had a more dramatic feel for the hazy style of beer...

    Bull
    Shit
