Boak & Bailey's Beer Blog - Writing about beer and pubs since 2007 (http://boakandbailey.com)
We’ve got into the habit of asking*industry people about money.One distributor gave this response to our query about why beers from a particular brewery were so expensive*(paraphrased):
Everyone, including me, is begging them for a few bottles here, a keg there, so they’ve got absolutely no incentive to offer discounts.
We’ve found*that the best way to turn down a job is to quote a ludicrous fee, but sometimes*people say ‘Yes!’ anyway.
Your choices as a consumer*seem to be*(a) drink something less trendy; (b) buy direct; or*(c) grit your teeth and pay up.
