Almost none of them seem to do it 100%, even if it comes to their views on “big beer”.
In one of the local beer groups I’m a member of on Facebook, someone went off on Devils Backbone (or some other brewery) for “selling out” and that this person would never give a single penny to one of the mega corps in any way, shape or form and would avoid any businesses that take their money. I had to point out that the distributor of a number of his favorite beers was owned by one of these mega corps, and that he was indirectly giving them money. Also, the beer he drunk at baseball and football games was most likely there only because a mega corp had the contract for the stadium/arena, even if it was true craft beer so he was still giving them money. There’s also the number of sponsorships that they have all across the spectrum, so their “dirty” money is in a lot more than he ever would expect it to be in.
I understand he was probably only talking about direct purchases of beer from “sellout” breweries, but I often hear similar absolutist statements made by others. However, this type of virtue signaling has serious cache with the hardcore beer nerds.
He not so kindly told me to F-off.
