yes i thought they had moved on to use buying power to get deals on common ales, volume sales on common lager and shop window for smaller breweries. All at a beneficial price to themI believe this was the original model but I was told it has moved on somewhat (in terms of shelf life rather than buying cheap) since the early days.
I should add that I have friends who run breweries and one who is a manager at a Spoons. Some breweries often brew especially for Spoons so why would they brew with a short shelf life? Others take the price hit so that they can get their beers 'known' and increase their customer base.
