Elysian Brewing Is About to Sell its Soul to Anheuser-Busch

The only craft brewery I can think of that I've experienced before and after being taken over by AB/InBev is goose island. I haven't noticed a decline in quality. So I have no issue with small breweries "selling their soul". Especially if this leads to their beers being easier to find.

First time posters

Now that you mention it, it has been awhile since I've seen it done.

First time posters

I think it depends on how the link is presented. Just a link seems like a brush off. Simply saying, these links have good info seems welcoming and helpful.

Heinous KFC commercial

The commercial is for fried chicken!! What do you want them to say? If you want to feed your kids crappy grease bombs, pick ours instead of some other fast food chain?

Accused of shoplifting!

You mean you don't like it when a single shopper blocks up an entire aisle? Seriously, those things are awful. I also try to get my shopping done during what would be the time that most people are at work. This way my two kids and my stroller are causing as few problems as possible.

Accused of shoplifting!

I do as I'm usually shopping while pushing a stroller. I have a hook that hangs off the handle and a bag hanging from the hook. I've tried managing the basket and the stroller, it's very cumbersome.

Reluctance to buy online?

Do they actually sell things in stores any more?

Amazon Prime for almost everything, Zappos for shoes and clothes and FreshDirect for groceries. Life is good.

Jewish Cooking not just Kosher

If it's not Kosher cooking you're looking to talk about, then home cooking would be the right board. It would be unwieldy to have boards for every type of cuisine.

A Message from The Chowhound Team & Plans for 2015

If you quoted the entire sentence I think you'd see what it means.

In the near future, we intend to clean up some older threads that have outdated information and may confuse new or longtime users alike.

Football during Thanksgiving dinner - am I a snob?

Great ideas by both of you. To me, nothing demonstrates class and good manners better than making a public spectacle of someone whose ettiquete does not meet your standards.

Football during Thanksgiving dinner - am I a snob?

Both of which scenarios could simply be met with "sorry,but no". If the guest said they refuse to come otherwise, that would be more of a demand.

Why does this one Post have arrows, numbers and not collapsing previously read posts?

That is the newish "question" format as opposed to the "discussion" format. You can vote answers up or down. I think it is supposed to be used for people looking for a quick answer to a question, but I don't really understand it.

Kitchen and Service Issues @ Burger Bar and Bistro

We stop there a couple of times a year on our drive back to NY from RI. We've always enjoyed our burgers, but the wait times often seem way too long and the service in general pretty hit or miss.
