Every Easter we go down to Vermont (yes, from Canada) to see my buddy and this is where I do a bunch of Vermont beer ratings. Hope you all had an amazing Easter :)

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.

I hope the same thing happens there that has happened in Canada with recent purchases. In the case of Molson and Creemore, I believe that only the legacy products are brewed at the original Creemore facilities while the newer products are brewed at the 'Six Pints / BATCH' site in downtown Toronto that used to be home to Amsterdam/Denison's and Duggan's. As for Labatt/Mill Street and Sleemans/Unibroue - all Mill Street and Unibroue brewing was left untouched asided from increased market penetration across Canada....not that Canada needs any more Mill Street.... Aside from Trafalgar being put out of their misery by All or Nothing Brewhouse, I can't think of any mergers between two Canadian craft brewers that was successful. So hopefully America will see a similar story where both brands survive and get more penetration into non-traditional markets (like Ontario, Canada)
