I spotted them in my local SuperValu over the weekend.

Here's my take on the whole thing.[/url:25gvpjah]

Just read it, well written and informative.
Not surprising results though, successful companies are often wary of moving away from the golden goose. They obviously spend a lot of money on the marketing dept and are usually avant garde in that respect, pity that they can't be the same with the brewing.

Cheers! The really bizarre bit is they think [i:2gz1h0ru]are[/i:2gz1h0ru] being radically different, because they have no point of reference outside Guinness.

I agree as you say they probably think they are being radical (management and accountants that is) and in some ways they are.
But can't help thinking the brewers on this project who are obviously very talented would have loved to 'go at it' (pure speculation on my part of course).
They say you get the politicians you deserve and you can say the same about beer I guess, most people have now grown up with bland beer and view it as the norm.
Thankfully beoir are pushing back on that and you seem to be making progess, been a while since I've been here but you (mean it in the best possible way) do really seem to be becoming the irish camra.
Continued sucsess in the future!
