One thing I will say is that, if you have a new local brewery and they are producing decent - maybe not great, but decent - beer, cut them some slack. Maybe the clarity or carbonation is off. Maybe the consistency is different from batch to batch. Give them time to dial it in. It may take a couple years even.
I agree with this statement.
All good things come with time. As many of you may already know that when you establish a new technique, start using a new piece of equipment or brewing process, then you discover there is a learning curve involved to gain better control over your process. Well this is the same kind of issue that many new small breweries can experience when they startup or evolve early on in their growth stage. I believe it's all part of the evolutionary process. However, it certainly doesn't give them a license to produce sub-par inconsistent products.
