  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

I do some work on the side for the Star-k, Angry Orchard is owned and produced by Boston Brewery, a.k.a. Sam Adams

But then again, I could be making that up :-)

I know you weren't, was just kidding around :-) Enjoy, they are all quite good and favorites of mine. If your into interesting brews they make some shandy's that I look forward to trying when they are back in season (Shandy is a mix of beer and either lemonade or lemon soda).

Anyone know what the deal is with r Meir Goldberg vaad hakashrus of Flatbush?
Can someone please explain why people are choshed this hechsher so much?
Why don't the same people ask about what the deal is with khof k, or crc (the Satmar one, who IMHO are worse than the OU) etc.??

Is there someone here who is perhaps very familiar with the hashgocho situation in Flatbush?
If yes, can you please elaborate as to why people consider Vaad Hakashrus (Goldberg) and Gornish to be second class to Kehila Kashrus?  What's up with that?  Politics?  Or solid issues?  TIA.

@robi, please don't perceive this as attacking you, totally not, just asking generally.

I don't know about Gournish, but Va'ad has had many stories, and people just don't trust them anymore. There was a big one a few years ago, I don't know details as for some reason it was really hushed, and no one wanted to talk about it. All I know is that it involved a fish store

That's the problem, no one wants to talk about anything.  Most Kashrus agencies "don't comment" on the reliability of other certifiers, so we hit a brick wall.  No body to talk to...
What type of stories?  I haven't heard them.
