Boston Beer Co is going to buy Dogfish Head? Wow. I've always been a fan of DFH. Not as much Sam Adams.

DFH left the local market for many years. I didn't miss their high prices.

Hope this merger brings DFH back to realistic pricing.

So, what shall we call the new company? Samuel Head? Dogfish Adams? :D

Based upon reading through the 400 pages, nothing will change from a BeerPal perspective aside from BBC will become the parent company of DFH. Of course, once Sam cashes out, anything is possible

Yeah, it's a biggy. I do not mind when Molson bought Creemore, and now they have more beers coming out every year. When Labatt bought out Mill Street, seems like the quality got a notch better, so I think nowadays big companies know not to fuck with the small ones. I really like those Sam Adams mixed packed every time I go to the States, and last couple of years, was not able to find it, so maybe it needed this to get back on track.
