BeerÂ giantÂ Anheuser-Busch InBev has acquired aÂ third craft brewery in the past week, Colorado based Breckenridge Brewery. It was only a few days ago that AB InBev announced the purchase of Four Peaks Brewing Company in Arizona and London based Camden Town.
25-year-old Breckenridge Brewery will be the seventh craft beer to join The High End, Anheuser Busch’s unit of craft beers thatÂ also includes brands such as 10 Barrel, Elysian, Blue point and Goose Island.
“Breckenridge Brewery has a long history of innovation and they continue to brew new and exciting beers, from their specialty brews like the Mountain Series that celebrates the brewery’s origin as a ski town brewpub, to their planned nitro can series,” saidÂ Andy Goeler, CEO, Craft, The High End. “They are innovative and have built an amazing business that’s enabled them to get their great beers to fans across the country. We look forward to even more growth together.”
The 160-year-old Anheuser-Busch is the world’s largest brewing company, producing famous brands such as Budweiser, Corona, Stella Artois, and Michelob.
