News broke this morning that Anheuser-Busch InBev has purchased Chicago's biggest brewer Goose Island for $38.8 million. In addition to the behemoth taking over, longtime brewmaster Greg Hall will be stepping down, to be replaced by former Deschutes Brewery headbrewer Brett Porter. Said Porter in a Goose Hollow press release: "Goose Island has somehow retained an approach to beer that you often only find at brewpubs, an ultimate respect for the craft of brewing... It is the kind of environment where a brewer can focus on the craft and be creative to explore." [CBB via Eater Chicago]
