Historically, I've been fan of Kona Brewing. Kona beer from the bottle (brewed, I believe, in Ft. Collins, CO) has always been awful. But at the brewery in Kona, Hawaii, it was sublime, at least their Longboard and Lavaman Red (IMHO). I just got back from Kauai, and I tried Kona beers on draft, which presumably are from the brewery in Kona and not from the mainland. They were god-awful. Kona has definitely changed recipes and/or processes. Undrinkable. Really a shame. In my area (Sacramento, CA), a major, long-established brewery (Rubicon Brewing), underwent a similar, negative transformation, and went out of business soon thereafter. So what are we homebrewers to think when a brewery that used to make great beer starts making s*** beer?
