Yeah, because that attitude is filling pubs right now. I was in the Mill House last Sunday night and there was only 4 of us in the entire lounge.

Cribben is completely correct.

Except, he's completely correct for about five years ago. We've moved on and I'd say he hasn't noticed. I'd be willing to bet that the new bottled beer opportunities he has identified are the like of Erdinger and Corona.

In fairness, McKenna is ahead of the curve. He's describing our little niche as though it was a commonplace reality. It's not a commonplace reality yet, but that's where it's heading.

That's actually well put. He was talking about bottled beer but my head was saying "does not compute" as he really should have been talking about craft beer.
