Ryan from the Chicago-based blog Guys Drinking Beer checks in to talk about the difficult circumstances Anheuser-Busch InBev now finds itself with the Illinois Secretary of State’s office, when it was recently revealed their wholly-owned subsidiary WEDCO (owners of large ABI distributor City Beverage) has never been registered to do business in the state. We speculate on possible repercussions the upcoming decision could have on AB-InBev and the beer distribution landscape in Illinois, talk about the recent influx of exciting new breweries in the state, and get an update from a local on how Goose Island is perceived since they were acquired by ABI.


The boys are back, talking craft beer industry news and analysis (with all the floral notes you love and the sturdy malt backbone you need) with stories including: SAB Miller being bad in the Badger State; Flying Dog goes home; Goose Island recall; Sam Adams/ DFH make flower beer for DC event; and Ska stays true to homebrew roots.
