Sinegal defended Obama's original meaning behind the "you didn't build that" line.

Our initiative, our enterprise - this, in part, is why our company succeeded. But here's the thing about the Costco story: We did not build our company in a vacuum, we built it in the greatest country on earth.


Exactly, the 'I got mine so fark you' narrative the GOP are spinning is basically saying the USA doesn't count, doesn't matter, doesn't factor into a business' success.

Sinegal's take is far more realistic and patriotic.

Has anyone else noticed that Pema Levy is kinda cute?

"For these last four years, I've had a president who's on my side," said Bill Butcher, the owner of Port City Brewing Company in Virginia.

"I remember what it was like to go to bank after bank after bank hearing 'No,'" said Butcher, recalling his attempts to get a loan for his fledgling business. "We may not have ever gotten to 'Yes' if it wasn't for President Obama and the SBA loan program he started."


And it's a good thing because Port City Porter, besides having a lucky name, kicks all kinds of ass.

Tartan (Scottish Ale)....drool.

If Bill (the) Butcher credits the president with the Genesis of Port City Brewing, then the man has my vote.

And only a few miles away, right across town, you have Mad Fox Brewing which is run by a full-on tea-party nutso. They used to be great but then started serving significantly smaller glasses and charging more so I stopped going.

Port City is just all kinds of awesome though.

It's the lack of the auto-preview. I've been typotastic since that was initiated.

Of course they do. Because stealing the name of a beer that is actually good, attaching it to far inferior product and then burying the original brewery in lawsuits when they complain... is bootstrappy!

They can be added post fermentation for accent.

Lord Dimwit: ...I really want a nice, medium hopped IPA right now, but if I drink this early in the morning, apparently I have a "problem"


On brew days, it's bad form not to crack open a beer during the mash. So if you start early on a brew day, you can be drinking by 9am.

Just another great reason to start brewing your own beer.

I should mention that it's a bad idea to get drunk before you pitch the yeast, so that is a mitigating factor.

Speaking of beer and politics, if, somehow, he does wind up being Carter 2.0, can Obama at least legalize home distillation to one-up Jimmy's ok'ing homebrewing? Pretty please?

As a St. Louisian, I have to agree. The InBev takeover was just unnecessarily mean-spirited.

A lot of my relatives stopped drinking Anheiser products after that. Some of them work for Anheiser.

/haven't tried kraftig yet

Even better, they're owned by a foreign company, making the picture complete.

My favorite right now is from the O'fallon brewing company. They make a wheat beer brewed with Peaches - called Wheach. farking awesome.

Careful though... in some of the classier places beer can cost almost $2 for a half-liter.

No matter who wins the election, I just want the exchange rate to stay the same as it is now.

Yeah, but you'd have to dial the hops waaaay back because of the bitterness.

I own a craft beer. Actually have a dozen or so. I don't own a brewery, but I own the craft beers themselves until I get around to fdrinking them, does that get me a speaking gig, subby?
