Formerly located in Cambridge MD, Wild Goose was purchased by Frederick Brewing in December 1997. The brewery was closed down in January 1998; Wild Goose then operated as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Frederick. The company was acquired in May 2006 by Flying Dog Brewery for $1,400,000. In January 2007, Flying Dog closed their Denver brewery and moved all of their operations here.
