Beam is so full of sh8t.

They have a ton of bourbon in their supplies. If you don't believe me...ask someone that has access to the open distillate market.

If that's not a good enough argument for ya'.

Look at it this way....
if Beam isn't keeping up with demand:(a) Is that the kind of company you want to support?(b) just what exactly are they doing in bourbon country, if, they aren't making bourbon?

My point is....Beam needs to quit artificially tightening push the price up. Their job is to make bourbon...and make plenty of it. Problem is...they have continually made up stories to explain their own ineptness at making sufficient bourbon supplies or....they are flat out lying to their consumers about their supplies.

Either doesn't bode well for the Beam family tradition.

Beam owns at least 5 different plants: Maker's Mark facility, Beam Claremont, Old Grand Dad Frankfort, The Boston facility, and one or two in Ohio.

It's time to quit supporting companies that continually monkey with their supplies to artificially raise consumers prices.
Strangely never hear this kind of problem from some of the more trustworthy distillers(Heaven Hill, Brown Forman, Wild Turkey, Four Roses). Beam and Buffalo Trace have been the two that started this whole "short on supplies, need to raise price" B.S.
I say don't support Beam and Buffalo Trace!
