Today is also the 57th birthday of Greg Hall, former brewmaster at Goose Island Brewing. Goose Island, of course, made some incredible beers. Founded by Greg’s father John Hall in 1988, Greg became brewmaster a few years later and has been setting high standards ever since, though he left after the family business was acquired by ABI. His new venture is Virtue Cider. Join me in wishing Greg a very happy birthday.
