Dick Cantwell resign from Elysian Brewing

In my post about Elysian Brewing being sold to Anneuser-Bush InBev I mentioned the rumor that head brewer Dick Cantwell had opposed the deal. "If true," I wrote, "it will be interesting to see what Dick does now." Well, Dick has announced his resignation from the Elysian. I find his statement a little confusing, but it seems to boil down to the fact that he couldn't consider himself a craft brewer if he worked for AB/InBev.

This news does actually make me less interested in the Elysian now, although on the other hand I'll be curious to see if Dick's departure changes their approach to brewing at all. They can continue to make his old recipes, but will they continue to experiment? Who will try to fill his shoes?

In any event, I hope he ends up brewing somewhere else, and it's hard to imagine that he won't. I believe he's around the same age as me.
