As I was just in Chicago, and was very close to making the trip to Goose Island, this news hits hard. The bad news is Brewmaster Greg Hall will be stepping down, however the good news is founder and president John Hall will still be there serving as CEO, as well as increased beer production in the future.
“Demand for our beers has grown beyond our capacity to serve our wholesale partners, retailers, and beer lovers,” Hall said. “This agreement helps us achieve our goals with an ideal partner who helped fuel our growth, appreciates our products and supports their success.”
I don’t know what the outcome of this deal may be, but ill just point you to this little documentary. “Beer Wars“
