So Feral sold out to Coke hey. Another one bites the dust.

Seems to me a good blueprint to make a feck load of cash these days. Flog yourself to death making a business for 5-10 years then retire. Well done to them I say.
Agree. Not sure why people get upset at business success stories. Vale bought out today too.

Its always the same old story: The products you love are never the same again.
Not always, Mountain Goat has managed very well under Asashi.

Nail brewery will be effected by Feral selling up too I'm lead to believe.

It's certainly not the end of the world. There's a never ending supply of great up and coming craft breweries in Australia

The trouble with these takeovers is the new parent company's pen-pushers & bean-counters start waving the finger at the production costs of these great beers & pretty soon they dumb down/water down the recipes to minimize costs & you're left with a beer that is then a mere shadow of it's former self.

For these big breweries it's about shelf & tap dominance, & eliminating the competition.

Cheers,

Lusty.
Awesome beer is just around the corner. I'll meet you there!

I have some cans of Sierra Nevada Pale Ale in the fridge. It's pretty good.

And in come more little independent breweries and the cycle starts all over again... (no different to many businesses out there... see it in consulting engineering firms often too.

None of these surprise me, I figure any brewery selling volume in Uncle Dan's is owned by a multinational or about to be owned by a multinational.

Not really true.

Selling beer is like selling anything but we'll just stick with beer.

Market penetration is a key to selling beer. Alongside and it and working hand in hand is logistics. Look at Amazon, it's just one giant logistics company. Coca Cola have probably the deepest market penetration wordwide of any other company. Absolutely ideally placed to get beer into every corner of this planet.

This is where a lot of smaller brewers struggle. If you have a brewery/restaurant then you have a magnet, without it, you're pretty much limited. You are literally winging it.
Just another Adelaide brewer

Cash flow is pretty important too. I don't think it's uncommon for micros to have to wait to sell some beer or wait until a debtor pays to be able to buy malt before they can brew. Coke should have some cash lying around if they're struggling to collect on some debts.

Not sure if it's related or not, but CCL are up since last week. The market has had a good week, so it might be entirely unrelated to buying Feral.

I had a Little Creatures pale on Sunday, I don't think Lion Nathan buying them has completely ruined that beer yet.
I have nothing interesting to add here.
