I can’t say that I’m surprised to read that Goose Island has had trouble with their flagship beer.
I don’t want to believe that this is a “big vs little” problem.
No, the problem is one of attitude. If your attitude is to make as much money possible, then quality comes in second.
If your attitude is to make the best beer possible, then money comes in after. I’ve seen the examples time and time again: The attitude always comes through in the end, no matter what you do.
So despite reading from GI employees that “nothing has changed”, there are facts that make me wonder who’s fooling who?
