Yes, you read that right. Greg Hall, brewmaster of Goose Island Brewery and son of founder John Hall decided to turn the bar at Wicker Park’s Bangers & Lace into a urinal after relieving himself into two 8-ounce glasses, both of which he filled completely before leaving them on the bar for the bartender to tend to. It sounds crazy, but keep reading.
It wasn’t celebrating the $38 million acquisition of his family’s brewery by Anheuser-Busch – it was just a birthday party. But it ended with a bartender saying that Goose Island brewmaster Greg Hall urinated into two beer glasses while standing at the bar and Hall saying he “(screwed) up big time.”
The incident Friday at Wicker Park’s Bangers & Lace, which Hall sheepishly blamed Monday on overconsumption, has generated apologies from Hall and lingering hard feelings from the bartender who said he had to clean up the urine left behind.
Totally unacceptable, but sounded like a crazy night and it’s creating a ton of buzz on the internet. The craft beer world’s Charlie Sheen? Perhaps! Be sure to check out the rest of the article on Greg’s wild night.
