What is MAP Pricing?

 

MAP = Minimum Advertised Price.  It’s an agreement between sellers and manufacturer’s not to sell an item below a certain price.  These items generally sell for about the same price no matter where you purchase them and are rarely discounted.

I think the general idea is… let’s maintain the value of our brand by keeping prices at a certain level. I’ve also heard of using MAP as a way to level the playing field among retailers. In homebrewing I’ve heard this used as reasoning to support local homebrew shops with the idea… if it’s the same price everything, I should buy local and support my LHBS.

This is all fine and dandy and again… I’m speaking in generalities, not mentioning a specific company.

News… Bell’s Brewery Sells to New Belgium Brewing

From Bell’s Brewery:

To the Kalamazoo Community and my Bell’s family:

When I first came to Kalamazoo as an ambitious freshman attending Kalamazoo College, I didn’t think I would stay here longer than my education required. I had aspirations to go far, but also had no idea that I would find my life-long passion and home in this city. It is here, in Kalamazoo, that I found my best friends and the hobby that has kept me around for the past four decades: brewing incredible-tasting beer alongside the people and community that I love.

We’re 10 Years Old Today… Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!

Homebrew Finds started 10 years ago today!

Post #1 from 11/19/10:


Welcome to the Homebrew Finds blog!

It’s my goal to provide you with homebrew and beer related finds and deals found in both likely and unlikely places.

Enjoy!


Since then we’ve published well over 24,000 posts, 161 reviews, many dozens of resource posts and how-tos and hundreds of reader tips.  We have thousands and thousands of email subscribers, 10s of thousands of Twitter and Facebook followers, loads of RSS subscribers and a growing community in our Facebook Discussion Group.

A lot of things have changed (and grown!) but some haven’t.  Other than a few great regular contributors (thank you!) Homebrew Finds is a one person operation.  It comes to you from the home of a homebrewer.  Our offices are my basement, garage and driveway.

I started Homebrew Finds because I found myself wanting to upgrade and brew at a reasonable cost and tried to find deals along the way.  As I found those deals, I thought it would be great to share them.

The Homebrewing Community quickly embraced Homebrew Finds.  I had partner shops come along side me quickly, tips started coming in and people started… reading and interacting.

Thank you for your warm embrace.  Thank you for being an awesome community.  Thank you for being part of a great hobby.  Thank you for 10 years and here’s to many more.

Cheers and… thank you!
