Another 2012 Predictions update:
- We have our first barrel aged beer from Ontario in the LCBO! The 2012 Mill Street Barley Wine has been aged in Jack Daniels barrels. Now all I need is one more before the end of the year. (Beau’s Screaming Beaver should fit the bill.)
- I want to open up debate for one of my predictions, specifically “Two beers or breweries will be started by the macro breweries that attempt to masquerade as craft beer.” As most people probably know by now, Creemore started up an offshoot called Mad & Noisy that is making beers that don’t fit under the Creemore brand. It’s a tough call, because it depends on whether you view Creemore as macro and if they are trying to pretend to be craft beer with the new brand. So I’m going to let people vote in the comments. Put a “Yes” if you think it should count as a correction prediction or “No” if you feel otherwise. Feel free to include an argument stating why. I’ll tally up the votes after a week and award a correction prediction if there are more people that say “Yes”. (In the event of a tie, it won’t count as a correct prediction.) Edit: The “Yes” voters win. Another point for me!
