10 Craft Beers That Aren't

9. Shock Top
Why it's not craft: Owned by Anheuser-Busch InBev

The same reasoning the Brewers Association applied to Blue Moon applies here: It's a big-brewery witbier.

Fine, but do you really not trust drinkers enough to suss this out on their own? BeerAdvocate's readers found it decisively average, while its writers think it's a pretty poor version of a witbier. RateBeer's readers have been far less kind.

Also, if the Brewers Association considers Shock Top such pure evil, then why does it have no problem including Anheuser-Busch InBev breweries on its membership rolls? Why does it allow them to take part in its festivals and competitions? Why does it take money (albeit tiny sums) from those breweries for its annual budget?

If Shock Top is so "not-craft," then why are you giving its parent company so much craft cred?
