We salute the ballsy, but honest guys that run Lagunitas Brewery!
They went to the chronically graft riddled city of Chicago, opened up a brewery and taproom there, and then donated $25,000 to the mayor. All above board and legal like.
This move shows that at least this one previously small micro-brewery is highly profitable as well as interested in shaping politics that are usually left to the big boys, like InBev.
And they even embrace the negative by brewing a “Lagunitas Sucks” ale.
Way to go guys! Please let us know when you are ready to buy up a bunch of smaller microbreweries to form your own international conglomerate and buy some sweet advertising space right here on this site.
