...I haven't had any Goose Island products in several years and rarely see them in my area, I guess this national roll out is about to change all that...

Anheuser-Busch ramps up Goose Island production in Fort Collins, CO to meet national demand

With a national roll out of Goose Island’s portfolio of beers, the Fort Collins Anheuser-Busch Brewery will ramp up production of Goose Island products locally.

AB purchased the majority, 58 percent, of Chicago-based Goose Island Brewery in 2011 for $22.5 million.

To meet increased national demand for Goose Island beers, such as 312, IPA, Honker’s and Mild Winter, Fort Collins’ AB brewery will brew and bottle the three beers and seasonal beers.

AB announced Goose Island beers will be available on draft and in bottles in a phased national launch this spring. Goose Island has been available in the Fort Collins area since late 2012.

Fort Collins’ AB Plant Manager Kevin Fahrenkrog said they had been brewing Goose Island since last fall for draft sales and started bottling, and canning in the case of 312, Monday.

AB‘s Baldwinsville, N.Y. brewery will also produce the Chicago brewery’s beer. Goose Island’s brewmaster Brett Porter along with Goose Island brewers will oversee the production of all the beers at the new facilities, according to a release.

“As a native Chicago line of brands, the national launch will bring one of the Windy City’s most acclaimed creations to consumers across the country,” said Andy Goeler, Goose Island CEO and president in a prepared statement. “Throughout the craft segment, Goose Island’s beers are recognized, respected and loved, maintaining a passionate and knowledgeable fan base over many decades.”

Specialty Goose Island beers such as Bourbon County Brand Stout, Sofie and Matilda will continue to be produced solely at the Chicago brewery.

Last month the Boulder-based Brewers Association, whose mission is to promote and protect small, independent American brewers, issued a statement titled "Craft vs. Crafty" asking that breweries such as AB put their names on beers such as Goose Island for transparency sake.

At that time, Fahrenkrog stated the growth of beer styles has given rise to hundreds of small brewers and earned Goose Island a place in this growing segment, noting that each of their beers has its own identity.
