Backing Away from Beer Wars

Back in March, I enthusiastically promoted the release of Beer Wars, a movie about the craft beer industry.

Never mind.

Not only does it turn out that they are bribing bloggers to post a press release by offering them free tickets to the movie, but they also had the gall not to offer me the same deal. Despite my high-minded refusal to "monetize" this blog, that's just insulting.

On top of that, early indications are that the movie isn't going to be very good, and it will be followed by a panel discussion led by a creationist.

The movie makers aren't the bribers, but the New Century Brewing peeps are.

In my opinion, preemptively panning a movie because you didn't get free tickets is just as bad as giving a good review because you did get free tickets.

Emaw -

Get with the program. I'm trying to set a precedent here where, if people don't give bloggers free stuff, we pan their products.

I hear this year's Porsches are going to suck almost as badly as the new line of Rolex watches and Ping's new golf clubs.
