    I barely noticed they were still around, I always thought they suffered from unrealistic pricing. That barleywine they did was ridiculously expensive and wasn't even barrel-aged.

    also, instead of having a bunch of styles on the market at once why couldn't they just do seasonals like a lot of others have done?

    that would have renewed interest in their beers also

    Yeah, important questions to ponder. I guess the NZ market is going to see a bit more of this with some biggish craft/ former craft players taking up quite a lot of what can't be a huge market. And although Australia is a bit behind in that regard I expect to see a few more people going the "a couple of regulars/ a few seasonals/ tests and specials at the brewpub" route. Finding that regular drinker is a huge thing for long term survival.

    As for Renaissance, I have found their range a bit baffling, overpriced and staid in recent times. Still love that Elemental Porter though.
