Article fails by calling Shock Top a craft beer. The whole point of faux craft beers is to grab shelf space from the real ones, and deceive those who don't know who really makes them.

I wouldn't really consider beers like Blue Moon or Shock Top to be a bad thing if they were at least honest on the packaging about who really brews them. It's the deception that bothers me. I know you can always Ask Google™, but that shouldn't be necessary.

/Quarter taps of that lovely beerlike substance back in college in the 80s

Dear Lord in heaven I heard that jingle about a billion times before I graduated high school!

/born in 1961, grew up in Northern Wisconsin where the only TV stations we got were in Minnesota, so we saw *plenty* of Hamms commercials, I still remember the Hamms bear with some fondness

Oh, and if you ever find yourself in Kalamazoo, you need to go to the Beer Exchange:

Their beer prices are driven by demand.

I think Michelob would be easy to rebrand.  It has a reputation has better beer, just need to go away from the macrobeer image.

Put it in a different shaped bottle, give it a label that looks 40 years ago and bend it towards microbrews.
Make a Michelob wheat, ect.

\Do we really think blue moon is a microbrew?

If you ask for a specific brand in any bar, they'll give it to you.  But, in Philly, if you ask for a lager, they'll give you Yeungling.
