To bring you truly great beer,
we have focused our efforts to one simple pursuit…ignore mainstream.
We brew the beer we want to drink.
In this pursuit we have found lower efficiencies, higher cost, less yields and smaller market share. This may seem like an unsound business model, but in our pursuit for bigger and better beer we have discovered a subculture of microbrewery aficionados. People like you, who enjoy beers that push the envelope of creativity.
That sounds like Crazy, Deranged Foolishness to me.
Thanks to Craic for the link, and for his most excellent blog post, “Crazy, Deranged Fools: Grand Rapids Hall of Fame”. Rock on.
Nothing beats a long tail of quality hops. CDF loyalty will lap that up. Up.
WOW, and I thought me and my beer buddies at Brecknock Brewing were odd balls because we went organic from seed to sip with our Pale Ale and Pilsner. We too are not looking to take over the beer business, nor are we craving huge market share, we simply want to make a quality beer with the lowest possible carbon foot print. We could care less what the rest of the world does, we care about what we brew. http://www.brecknockbrewing.com
We love beer. A little too much. But I`d like to draw your attention to some real CDF.
Everyone wants to be a part of it. What started as a joke, a rumour and a RAT in a SUIT is growing…
F**k knows why?
in fact this brewery is working with our friend,another crazy deranged fool, Steve Stallard of Blis who ages maple syrup in used bourbon barrels. They are using these barrels to age their breakfast stout. From what I have heard the foolishness has created something existential.
Thanks for the link to my blog! The Founder’s guys are certified CDF’s.
Michigan certainly is need of more of this mentality too.
All the best!
I used to go to Founders quite a bit when I was attending GVSU. Great beer. Hugh if you ever decide to head over there let us crazy deranged fools know. I’ll make sure I stop by and buy you a beer or two.
