Well craft brewery in the nation right we have Fred.
And -- Matt joining me net closes to may spread over here your third and fourth generation brewers accompanies a 125.
Years old you are not and then heinous act.
-- -- Really right I'm not a hundred -- yeah.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- I'm so let's hear from upstate New York to clean -- -- -- new York and we are not the largest where -- I think seventh or eighth largest craft for them in the states and and that makes us somewhat and usual because.
We are actually -- historic regional marine company was founded by my grandfather -- great grandfather 125 years ago.
And yet we have converted ourselves become craft for -- and so right -- mixer and their fear and probably that's why we're still there on.
How come you haven't decided to be taken over by Sam Adams.
Molson Coors or what ever how come you stayed independent.
You know there's a certain tradition -- our fairway couldn't just stay in this business the Turks and it's taken a lot of staying power I suppose in some cases that.
Maybe not the best intelligence or wherever but we have been in the business and and chosen to stay.
So fast that it would take them over from -- -- but you know we've had many on brewer's son and most of the time they say that they.
Been taken over by a larger company.
But you know crack crew is he has right now they're hot as a rocket and that -- meant that one is that in your opinion.
You know I think that over the years that we've got we are there a lot of more mainstream -- and what people really come around to -- is more distinctive and drinkable careers are distinctive here's our position -- -- more distinctive and drinkable for.
You would I would say is that you go out drinking a pale -- or -- canal or.
And a blueberry hill and the next -- go to work and -- had a great fear.
But not necessarily can do that if you have a national brand in the national brands are good for years but you're not going to be -- declined to talk about them that you would craft -- it -- It seems to me like the beer industry -- island -- wine industry a little to -- the food and drink pairings and that's true and -- you know there's another element that goes on and that is I think consumers really like the idea that they know where product comes from -- know with people local -- -- this local.
I'm not a lot of the craft person that and certainly -- our company's very open and you know if you call my number answers.
If you send an email to -- we'll answer that day were very involved with consumers and very involved with you know staying staying in touch.
-- you nervous that made me miss.
Whom we'll come to an end.
You know I think in most fit most areas of the food drink products you find that there's a whole segment develops to be.
More awful tasting.
More premium products and I think that's what -- -- it's become men and I think it'll stay that premium.
Will it yes will -- we'll continue to grow to raise its growing probably not but I think it tears today when.
I don't some say that this is -- 125 anniversary and not too many companies can say that it and so we have gone through prohibition.
World -- And we've survived and we we -- reinvented ourselves in fact this year with a 125.
We found my great grandfather's recipe that dates back to 1914 matches this here -- right here is saying I PA.
So we've done is we've we took the rest -- and took up a little bit for today.
In the -- the only place you can buy that forget that is by buying our twelve facts can.
-- what we're basically doing is doing this free to our customers who were not changing the price at all.
And it's a thank you for helping it's good.
A hundred porn site nightmares and I don't know any company today that really kind of goes out and says thank you -- and celebrates.
One point five what I'm not many people -- -- you -- -- -- grocery store all throughout New England -- in order to.
Here there and where you would normally -- -- and I keep trying this and and this -- and certainly been in this book -- in effect for free for the consumers a way of saying thank you for supporting.
-- think you know well at you must get this question on coming years you can today that it could happen.
Words -- been very good.
Saying I think it's -- and -- and not thinking today it's quite an Garland over.
No if you if you were define me out I think you'd find those drinking a beer with the same thing for for a few months there's some mornings we feel that way.
