Let us hope that Budweiser will let Goose Island flourish with tasty beer and not micromanage to produce...well...more Bud.

A-B owns a lot of brands from around the world and/or parts of them.
They always let them do their thing, that's why they bought them to have something different.
Same as Jim Beam didn't change Maker's Mark way to do things when they bought them.

I hope so, that would be in their interest; but there have been many ruined companies as a result of mergers. I appreciate Goose Island products and usually have some in the beer fridge.
