Goose Island Beer Co.
Goose Island, launched in to Australia Mid 2017, bringing American brewing know how and love of hoppy IPA’s with them, although the story goes back a lot further than that!
Our famous beer began with a trip across Europe, when Goose Island founder (and unabashed beer lover) John Hall took a tour across the continent. Pint by pint, he savoured the styles and selections of brews in every region, and thought to himself, “America deserves some damn fine beer like this, too.”
Craft brewing wasn’t widely known at the time, but upon return from his European sojourn, John set out to change all that. He settled down in his hometown of Chicago—a city perfect for craft beer, with rapidly evolving tastes and the largest system of fresh water on the planet. And then he got to brewing.
That was back in 1988, and we haven’t slowed down since. By 1995, John’s beer had become so popular that he decided to open a larger brewery, along with a bottling plant to keep up with demand. What was once one man’s pint-filled dream has become the Goose Island Empire you know and love today.
Here at Goose Island we don’t need to be the only beer you drink, we just want to be the best beer you drink!
