From craft beer to crap beer. Reply Dave says: May 28, 2011 at 6:18 am I was wondering when the big boys were going to start gobbling up theses upstarts. Make good beer? How dare they!

I work for Hensley the #1 distributor in the country for Anheuser-Busch and can assure you that nothing has changed for Goose Island. It was all part of the contract, that they would keep brewing beer the same way. I was actually looking forward to more beer coming into my state but was informed that will not be happening because Goose Island with the same company objective. So don’t give up and keep enjoying quality beer, and be happy for the brewers/owners that do not have to worry about the bottom line anymore but simply making beer that they enjoy!
