The reaction has been interesting to the idea of BBADD. From those in the trade, there's a reluctance to look anything like MADD or to discuss the negatives related to craft beer. That makes sense. No one, at least as a first reaction, wants the product they depend on for a living to be associated with controversy. But I don't depend on a product. I am on the other side of the deal, a craft beer consumer. The reaction from other consumers has been the opposite from the trade. For them, it's a good idea and one that should be discussed. Let's see how that plays out as we go along. Early days and, you know, I am not going to turn this into A BBADD Beer Blog or anything but I do want to explore the idea a bit without being on one hand preachy or on the other a chicken little.
More importantly, Grant from ThirstyMates.com cleaned up the logo. Much better. Let me know if you paste it at your place. Grant also wrote a post last May about how he agreed with Ontario's new increased licensed suspension penalties and how it's in line with his concept of personal responsibility. You may have a different take but have a look.
