LINCOLN PARK — Goose Island Brewery will keep its original Lincoln Park location in business for at least 10 more years, the company announced Thursday afternoon.

The announcement of the lease came months after a publicized dispute between Goose Island and the landlord, who had expressed doubts about a lease renewal.

Goose Island opened at its 1800 N. Clybourn Ave. location 25 years ago and continues to run a 10-barrel brewhouse and brewpub there.

"The past 25 years have exceeded our greatest expectations — we cannot thank you enough for all of your support," Goose Island posted in an announcement of the lease signing on Facebook. "We've been right where we belong since 1988 and are eager to unveil what's in store for us in the future."

In June, the landlord of the 12,500-square-foot space, CRM Properties Group, announced it would be looking for a new tenant for the space as Goose Island had requested a 30 percent reduction in rent.

Those reductions were to be on top of an unspecified cut in rent that Goose Island and CRM agreed to in 2008.

The specifics of the new deal were unclear, and owner John Hall was not immediately available for comment.

The brewery will host a celebratory toast at the premiere of its Birdhouse American Wheat at 6 p.m. Thursday.

The lease dispute was not the first between Goose Island and CRM, as threats of Goose Island moving were made in 2008  when the sides could not come to an agreement on a deal, according to Crain's Chicago Business.

The Goose Island brewing company was sold to Anheuser-Busch in 2011, but Hall still operates the original brewpub at 1800 N. Clybourn Ave.
