Goose Island is a young brewery compared to most. It began as a part of the Goose Island Brewpub, started by John Hall. Hall, a beer-lover, traveled throughout Europe and after experiencing so many distinct local beers, he decided that Chicago could do the same. Hall's Goose Island craft brews (and pub) began in 1988. It was very popular throughout Chicago and in 1995 Hall opened a larger brewery and bottling plant followed by a second brewpub in 1999. In 2006 the company was sold to Widmer Brothers Brewery and in 2011 is was announced that the company will be sold in parts to Anheuser-Busch.
Today Goose Island has over 50 craft beers including Matilda (Belgian Ale, Bourbon County Stout (Imperial Stout), Nut Brown Ale (Brown Ale) and many others.
