    Seriously though,

    I wish Kuhnhenn would send me a mixed case of beers so I can try their stuff

    I wish the evil AB-Inbev would make sure more of the BCBS variants came to StL, and that you could get cups full of it at Cardinals games

    I wish Bent River (local, no distribution) would think outside the box a little and brew something other than what they've been brewing for the last ten years. Oh yeah, down with bombers and 750's I want black tuesday in 4 packs.

    I wish some Beer Companies in Maine would (allegedly) keep their Pliny clone recipe the same when they move to Freeport. Do what's right.

    I wish breweries were allowed to sell directly to retailers, thus removing 35% of the price we pay as consumers.

    I wish Great Lakes would release a bomber of barrel aged blackout stout to my area. It's good to drink a true big stout from time to time that doesn't have An abundance of coffee or chocolate. It's a good change of pace for this stout guy. I also wish Stone brewing co would decide to make this years vertical epic(12.12.12.) a regular in the month of December. Man that stuff was killer. My final wish would be for the great Belgian breweries like fantome, d'achouffe, and st bernardus would make their brews available here In my area. It'd be nice to have the option of some of those strong dark Noel ales and dark saisons at Christmas time

    You really think that the mark-up that distributors add to the final cost of beer is pure profit? That they don't have the typical business overhead costs (fuel, trucks, labor, warehousing, etc) and that those cost would then have to be borne by the self-distributing brewery? And, in most cases, the self-distributing brewery would not be as efficient as a multi-brand wholesaler so it might cost them MORE to distribute the beer?

    Lots of states allow breweries to self-distribute and beer is not appreciably cheaper in those states, or from those S/D breweries. And many breweries in those states still choose to go with an outside distribution deal outside their immediate region of the state and/or once their barrelage reaches a certain size.
