ASHEVILLE, N.C. — The sale of a popular North Carolina brewery is causing outrage, but not for reasons you might expect. New Belgium announced its intent to sell the business to Australia-based Lion Little World Beverages. The United Nations and Amnesty International say that Lion Little’s parent company Kirin financially supports the government of Myanmar.


I enjoy Fat Tire, but haven’t bought it in a long time since there are more local brews that are as good or better. However, a lot of people have recommended the brewery tour to me. I was interested in doing that in the near future. But I try to make informed choices about where I spend my money and time, so I guess I’ll need to follow up to see if Kirin changes any practices due to the spotlight.
