Reader: Corporate "Craft" Beer Has Been Around a Long Time — Money Talks

Before AB InBev gobbled up the Breckenridge Brewery, it purchased 10 Barrel out of Bend, Oregon — and the news that 10 Barrel will now open a brewpub in RiNo, perhaps at Casselman's, was not met with open arms — and mouths — by craft-beer enthusiasts here. Says Adam: 

Don't bother...if Casselman's is indeed the intended location, you'll be in the "taint" too far from clueless fucks stumbling out of Rockies games in LoDo to drink your beer, and on the fringe of locals who know far too better where to visit true local craft brewers. On second thought, sounds about perfect.

Adds J.T.:

Run them out of town Denver. You have all the choice in the world for TRUE QUALITY craft beer.

But here's Gary's conclusion:

Corporate "craft" beer has been around a long time and is here to stay. Money talks.

Do you think Denver drinkers will embrace corporate "craft" beer?
