As it is at any brewery, there's no position more important than Brewmaster. At a brewery as big as Goose Island, the job of Brewmaster comes with even more responsibility and a constant magnifying glass on every decision made. The man making those decisions for Goose today is Jared Jankoski, former Head Brewer at New Glarus, now leading one of the most talented brewing teams in the industry. We sat down with the fourth Goose Island Brewmaster to dig into his past, present responsibilities, why he doesn't always like Goose Island alumni breweries, and even the name of his 'famous' cat.
