The article discusses Anheuser-Busch InBev's (A-B) acquisition of the Fulton Street Brewery LLC. It states that Fulton is a brewery based in Chicago, Illinois and produces Goose Island beers, while A-B has been its distribution partner since 2006. In March 2011, Fulton agreed to A-B's purchase terms as it needed the extra capital to meet the demands of wholesale partners and retailers. According to John Hall, Goose Island's chief executive officer, not only will he retain his post, but the company will continue to operate in Chicago, and expand its line.
