Just a moment ago a thread where the OP asked about beers that pretended to be craft but were actually macro, was locked down, and rightfully so. The conversation quickly became a debate between people who support Ab/inbev products and people who do not. It was off topic for sure. I am guilty for participating in a major way. Again, Todd locked it down and rightfully so. But I think this is a worthy conversation to have, I just fear that starting the conversation will get it locked up. I have seen a number of other threads spiral into this topic before and, because they happen in threads that aren't really asking about that issue, they got locked down. I once started a thread about the issue itself and it was deleted. With all the intensity around the issue I think it is worth having a conversation about it. I think the staunchest anti-ab/inbev folks have a lot to learn from those who support ab/inbev and vice versa. But obviously, I don't want to see it get locked down. I think it is an extremely relevant topic and would love to see it be discussed. I would post a thread along the lines of "Inbev: To boycott or not to boycott? That is the question"; but I fear that would be locked down instantly. So my question is, is this a topic that can not be discussed here or is it just being discussed in the wrong manner? And if it is the latter, what is the best approach? How can beeradvocate be the venue for such a conversation? I think it should be, as this is the place where beer lovers gather and this is a very important topic. Any feedback would be great, especially from either of the Bros. Thanks in advance!
