The Chicago Tribune broke the news Friday morning that Anheuser-Busch, which acquired Chicago-based Goose Island in March of 2011, would begin distributing the beer nationwide by the end of November. Though its ownership by a multi-national corporation like Anheuser-Busch sort of flies in the face of the whole "craft beer thing," the beer will still be produced on a much smaller scale than the company's mainstream labels. And perhaps thirsty South Florida fans of Goose Island won't give a rip about who owns it, so long as they can finally get their mitts on the stuff close to home (and the quality holds up).
