    The best conclusion I can come to is we need to be aware of these kinds of acquisitions, as well as the business practices of Big Beer so we can understand how it impacts us. As craft beer drinkers where we spend our money is what will ultimately determine the future of the craft beer movement and the brewers that have fueled its growth.

    I am not so sure what statement Greg Koch made that are critical of Goose Island. His honesty is refreshing and it comes from 1st hand experience. Try to beat that.

    And Rate Beer’s input is about as laughable as their website. Rate Beer is NOT in the industry.

    I love that Greg has the balls to come out and say how he really feels about it.

    Cheers Stone Brewing!

    As a huge fan I have read everything i can get my hands on regarding this sale, and while my initial reaction was negative it is tempered (slightly) by the fact the stated intention is to let Goose Island run as its own division within AB. If that stays true then I will remain optimistic. But no matter what happens Greg is departing as brew-master and while I wish him well, that is not something I look forward too.

    Did you ask Greg Koch what he thought? He’s made some statements that come off as critical of Goose Island.
