3 Floyds is finally realizing that clear information is critical to capturing today's savvy beer consumer, especially when dealing with a price point even BeerAdvocate is questioning.

Just kidding.
ah, you mean this BS:

If being opaque and inaccesible is your 2020 craft beer strategy, even as your previously highly sought after beers sit on grocery store shelves everywhere... yikes.

I mean who knows maybe that angle still works for them. But when the consumer community is debating whether or not your variants are worth taking on 4 overpriced and unwanted bombers I gotta imagine things are less than ideal.

A Black Friday event at Binny's just won't be the same if people can't figure out a way to cut in line or drink whalez out of solo cups one oz. at a time. Sad!
I like how they say "you'll be randomly assigned one of the two options" then ask for your Binnys card like they're not going to use that to see who's more loyal (spends more) to decide who wins and what you win :) It's the same thing Binny's does with bourbon allocations (at least the store's I've encountered):p

Don’t sleep on this year’s regular Deth’s Tar. It’s damn good. Big, heavy stout but still dry and no alcohol burn. My first thought is that it reminds me of Baudonia.

beeraficionado, you guys aren’t using moldy barrels, are you? Baudonia has long held the crown for me for BA stouts, flavored variations notwithstanding, but this one… damn. Nice job to Marty and the entire team!
