Big beer industry changing
« on: May 06, 2014, 01:15:42 PM »
http://blogs.denverpost.com/beer/2014/05/02/pete-coors-grappling-ever-changing-world-beer/13551/

Coors:  "Having a premium light brand, whether itís Coors, Miller or Bud on tap actually improves the economics of their business. People stay in their seats an average of 18 minutes longer when they have a light premium beer on tap"

They are getting desperate, lol



Give a man a beer and he'll waste an hour, teach him how to brew beer and he'll waste a lifetime.

Better tasting products will outsell any inferior ones, itís just common sense and you donít need an app for that lol
Instead of focusing on vented cans or any other bullshit gimmicks and propaganda they should just start making actual beer

I dream of the day when these dinosaurs become instinct and craft brewers rule the world!  :rock:

If they don't want their tap handles removed, maybe the answer is a new tap handle design?

Like a vented aerodynamic handle with magnets that changes color to improve the speed of the pour and gives premium magnetic beer experience with really fast bubbles.  A few million to market those nationally should do the trick.   :rock:

I would like to see some of the numbers on what he claims.

Blue Moon is the #1 selling "craft beer" in the country? So your telling me that Blue Moon is outselling something like SA Boston Lager? Have a hard time believing that.

Vented cans show just how desperate big beer companies are getting. I guess it will help people who drink that crap drink it quicker so they don't realize just how bad it tastes.

Haha I'll still grab a 12'er of light lager if I'm really going to tie one on.

Heh heh - a nice light lager12 pack is ok to get the evening started after an unfortunate dinner, like turnips and overdone porkchops, or brussel sprouts and liver sans bacon. Things only get better from there...
