Greg Wisinski

Chef Greg got his start in the culinary field at Angler's Inn at Lunker's in Edwardsburg, MI when he was just 15 years old. After high school Greg attended the Culinary Academy in Orlando, FL. Faced with high student debt, Greg knew he was going to have to work hard to get back in control of his finances. He landed two jobs—one in a fine dining establishment, and the other in a high volume, casual restaurant. After being promoted to manager at Murray Brother's Caddyshack he got a good taste of what it takes to start your own restaurant. Chef Greg credits a lot of his knowledge to Chef Carl at Juliana's Fine Tuscan Cuisine when it comes to wine, and from-scratch cooking. "You learn the basics in culinary school, but working in the field is where you really get your knowledge from' Chef Greg states. 'I teach my staff the same way Chef Carl taught me. Explaining things thoroughly, in-depth, and why." The only way to master something is to have knowledge of every step that takes in between. Afterwards Chef Greg traveled the country working in as many different restaurants as possible. Absorbing as many do's and dont's as he could. Moving back to Indianapolis, Greg Wisinski met a restauranteur that wanted to partner with him. After purchasing an old restaurant that had made $400,000 the year prior to closing, Chef Greg created a fine dining establishment, with an impressive wine list, and mostly scratch-menu. The restaurant went on to make $1,200,000 in their first year. Shortly after, Greg went on to restaurant consulting and helped South Bend Brew Werks establish standard operating procedures, and day-to-day routines. Greg and Joel met for the first time and immediately became great friends. Joel had a vision for creating his own brewery and Greg wanted to be there every step of the way.  

After brewing his first batch of beer in 2006, the bug bit and the rabbit-hole swallowed Joel. Always after the pursuit of knowledge Joel wanted to know what makes beer different, and the various ways to make it better. Studying at The Siebel Institute of Technology in Chicago, Joel was able to learn from some of the brightest brewers, microbiologists, and successful brewery owners. Part of his coursework included traveling to Munich, Germany where he studied at Doemens Academy. Learning the proper processes of creating Weissbier, Lagers, and Reinheitsgebot, the German Purity Law. Opportunity struck when a local brewery was in need of a new brewer. Here he met Chef Greg Wisinski, and realized they both had a passion to create their own vision. Several months of searching for a location, Heavenly Goat found a home in Heritage Square in Granger, Indiana. Heavenly Goat Brewing Company Opened it's doors to the public April 10th, 2017. Joel focuses on creating traditional beer with a dash of New World Spirit, searching high and low to find new ingredients that meet his standards. WIld yeasts are harvested from fruit orchards, water profiles are custom=tailored to suit the style of beer he's making. As much as brewing beer is an art, people tend to look past the science aspects—something Joel wants to change. 


MYTHOLOGY

Manuscript_Heidrun.jpg


The 'Heavenly Goat' origin story takes place in Valhalla of Norse Mythology. Heiðrún the Goat, stands on it's hind legs biting the buds that grow on the 'Tree of Life'. From her teats runs the mead that fills a cauldron so large that all of the Nordic Warriors that have fallen, and are carried to Valhalla on the wings of the valkyries are able to drink.

Valhalla is represented by a large hall, similar to our spacious restaurant. The mead can be represented by our hand-crafted beer, and the warriors represent our patrons...souls looking for a place to rejuvenate from the struggles and joys life can bring. 


Poetic Edda

Heithrún, the goat
on the hall that stands,
eateth off Læráth's limbs;
the crocks she fills
with clearest mead,
will that drink not e'er be drained
