Greg Hall began his brewing career in 1988, as assistant brewer at Goose Island. In 1989, Greg began an aggressive independent study of brewing techniques – touring craft breweries throughout the U.S. and traveling to Europe to study Old World methods. Hall made over a dozen trips to Europe – visiting the best breweries in England, Belgium, Germany, and the Czech Republic. By the time the company’s bottling operation began in 1995, Greg Hall had become brewmaster of Goose Island.
