Budweiser accuses craft brewery of theft, slanders Calfkiller Brewing Company in Tennessee
Lautering.com reports today on one of my favorite breweries, CalfKiller Brewery from Sparta, TN, being accused of theft by Budweiser over the use of old kegs that they bought from a reseller. The Sergios responded on Facebook to the situation. "The big monopoly Budweiser has started walking in to accounts, and simply taking the little guys kegs! FLIRTING WITH SLANDER they have told business owners that Calfkiller had stole the kegs," in their words. Very petty of Budweiser (or, at least their local tentacles).
If you are in the area, please support Dave and Don by buying their wonderful brews. If you are not in the area, you are missing out, as they are very creative and out-of-the-box in their brewing, but you can still help by spreading this story far and wide.
