    This story is far too common.

  • Re: Movie Classics/Must see

    I need to know someone well enough to recommend films. That said, you could watch Casablanca and if you hate it you cross off every black and white romance ever made. Watch West Side Story, love it, more musicals for you, hate it, move on to True Grit, hate that, try North by Northwest, if you hate all of those, stop watching film. But that is how I would suggest you broaden your knowledge. Take ten major genres, watch a film that is widely considered one of the best in each and decide where you want to focus your viewing for awhile.

  • Re: Far Cry 5

    I kind of miss playing story based single player games. I've been so addicted to Overwatch that it's taken me outside of my typical gaming habits. I'm with you, this looks like a must play from a story and presentation standpoint.

  • Re: Craft brewer sells out to InBev

    The dream of a millennial dude owning a craft brewery is akin to millennial ladies all wanting their own cupcake bakery several years back. It's a tricky investment for a bank because most regions have reached saturation. There are going to be winners and losers over the next few years. Here in the Mid Atlantic beer has been a boom market. It seems like a new craft brewery pops up every couple months, and I'm not just talking restaurants that brew their own beer, I'm talking facilities with distribution and dreams of owning a slice of the craft beer pie. Honestly, most of it is pretty good, and most of them have a decent branding and marketing plan to differentiate themselves, still..... Something has to give, the bubble is going to burst eventually. If I were loaning money, I'm not sure MD/PA/VA/DE needs another craft brew facility.

    If I had a successful craft brand, when I say successful, I don't mean Sam Adams, they can do their own thing, they have made it and are not in any danger of going under, but think an emerging brand, like here in MD we have this small company, Union Brewing that makes a session IPA called Duckpin that is branded well and quite nice... If I owned Union Brewing and a corporate brewery made me an attractive offer to set my family up good, I think the smart money would be to get out.... Honestly, so many of these great brands are going to go under in the next few years, there are just too many of them, the market is saturated, mankind only needs so many session IPA's to choose from.
