Ever since learning that World of Beer was planning an Arlington, VA location just blocks from my front door, I have been excitedly following the progress of the beer mecca. On Monday August 6th they hosted a “VIP” event for their Facebook fans and Twitter followers, one day prior to their official opening on August 7th. So I made plans to visit the new beer establishment and see what their 50 draft lines and 500 bottles had to offer.
News broke Monday from the Chicago Tribune of former brewer Greg Hall of Goose Island, having an “incident” at Wicker Park’s Bangers & Lace in Chicago, IL. A little over a week ago, Goose Island announced it’s acquisition by Anheuser-Busch for a mere $38 million and with that, Greg Hall announced his resignation from his family’s 23-year old brewery.
