Beer Business Daily’s Harry Schuhmacher put together a wrap-up post of this past week’s Beer Summit. Here is a snippet.
WELCOMING INDIE CRAFT INTO THEIR DISTRIBUTORS. So how to get to growth? Ed has some ideas. First of all, he said that "rather than trying to limit or control other craft beers, MillerCoors should help distributors become the craft brewer’s best friend," he says, clearly trying to draw a distinction between MC and A-B. "I want all of our distributors to have a powerful lineup of craft brands" so that they can "lead the dialogue at retail with us" with a strong portfolio, become more profitable so they can "invest for the long-term" and so that wholesalers with craft "can win back those indulgence and comfort occasions that today are going to wine and spirits."
