Yesterday I got a long email about “Beer Wars” from Harry Schuhmacher, who runs Beer Business Daily.
As I would have expected, his take was thoughtful, nuanced, and suffused with long-view, big-picture perspective — precisely the perspective that was not given its due during the “Beer Wars” saga. (If I seemed to be aggravated while on stage, it was because I was holding my tongue and not saying “Greg, Todd, Sam, Charlie! You’re full of shit. Get some perspective.” Or words to that effect.)
Anyway, I intended to ask Harry if I could post his email here at my blog, but he beat me to the punch and posted it at his own blog. It’s worth noting that, ahem, he’s not seen the film — but in this case (unlike so many others), his comments are absolutely worth reading.
