Dudes are complaining that as a brewer makes more, the overall quality drops. That's the definition of consistency. Idiot.

I chose crab cakes because I've done that 100 times. You make one order, they're great. You make a few hundred, they're less great. Same with 3500 vs 15000 barrels or whatever.

Too late to get a refund?
Drinking my first Sue from this "new" batch and I....have to agree with ya. Not the same as before. Oof.

P.S. Don't get me wrong, it's still good, but nowhere near what I remember.
Quality always suffers when the emphasis is shifted to quantity. I'm afraid of the same thing happening to Yellow Rose.
It doesn't have to

the ingredients are the same, the process is the same... the infrastructure needs to be there to support it but expanding and retaining quality is very possible

if quality suffers during expansion then there is a larger internal "business" issue
I think that larger internal business issue might be that the head brewer, Mike, left Toppling Goliath. I think his talents are largely responsible for TG's reputation.

As for quality dropping when batches are scaled up, Tree House in MA has navigated the shift to a larger brew house masterfully. If possible, their beer is even better now

I feel like the amount of sours I just drank are currently eating the lining of my stomach. Worth it. Totally lost track of everything I had been drinking there but had some really good stuff from Crooked Stave among lots of others. Managed to make some friends and get a couple of pours off of these as well. A good day.

Drinking my first Golden Nugget (eva). Think I like it more than this latest batch of Sue.
