Whew...What a Summer.

The dog days are upon us. I've been so busy I haven't had time to post much. There are so many new brands and products flooding the beverage market that I really don't know which ones will miss and which ones will hit. I haven't added any new brands recently because of the opportunities I'm missing with the brands I have. I am planning an all out distribution-space war with the competition in August, just to get some new packages on the shelf.

Heard at all the malt beverage conventions this summer: "space is running out, buyers are hiding from me, employees are saying they don't get paid enough, prices are going up, diesel is killing me, excise taxes are due, I'm ready to get out".

I'm thinking about buying one of those new .me domain names. How does sound. Or,,, Anyway, they just started selling them at GoDaddy if you want to get a great name since all the .com's seem to be taken. Let me know if you come up with any good ones.

Do we still have a major brewery that is American owned anymore? The answer is no. What if the Yankees were owned by the French or the Cowboys were owned by a group from Asia. How about Ford and GM to the Swiss. Coke and Pepsi to Saudi Arabia. My advice if you are confused on which beer to purchase...drink Shiner because I love Carlos and he sings very well.

Adios, mi amigos.
