The article discusses renewed calls by founder of craft brewer Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. Ken Grossman for U.S. big brewers to be more transparent over the craft beers they own. He notes the frustration felt by small brewers as Anheuser-Busch InBev an MillerCoors do not include their names on craft-like brands like Goose Island and Blue Moon. It cites Grossman's belief on the lack of soul in bigger operations which is the reason he argues why craft brewers are growing up strongly.
