If you didn't think the craft beer movement was in jeopardy, look no further than Shock Top Brewing Company. This is what I got for posting too damn quickly. Getting content out there is no good if you don't do research.
My apologies to my fellow craft beer brethren out there. I led you astray by not divulging fully the following:
Shock Top Brewing is wholly owned by Anheuser-Busch.
It doesn't alter the taste of the beer by any stretch of the imagination, but no wonder the value is there. $6 for a six pack is because of the big machine behind it. I support smaller, local brewers. Had I not been duped by the packaging I never would have paid for this beer.
