Anheuser-Busch InBev to Acquire Four Peaks Brewing
BE Four Peaks

The giant brewery AB InBev (we are waiting for the new name after the SAB Miller deal) announced the purchase of Four Peaks Brewing, from Arizona.
This deal with the largest brewery in Arizona, confirms the company’s interest in the craft beer segment: this is the sixth craft brewery acquired by the international beer company.

“For 20 years we’ve had more amazing experiences than I can count doing what we love to do most – brewing great beer and sharing it with a growing craft community in Arizona that has supported us from day one,” said Andy Ingram, Four Peaks co-founder. “We’re excited to join the enthusiastic team and tap into their resources to expand our footprint and share our beer with even more people moving forward.”

Four Peaks was created in 1996 and today sells approximately 70.000 barrels per year, including the award-winning and flagship beer, Kilt Lifter, a Scottish-Style Ale that represents more than 60 percent of the brewery’s sales.

“As the leading craft brewery in Arizona, we’re proud of what we’ve built and of our brewing heritage. We’re excited to build on that success with The High End,” said Jim Scussel, Four Peaks co-founder. “Arizona has a rapidly-growing fan base for craft beer and we look forward to more opportunities to share what Four Peaks is about within our local community, and beyond,” added Randy Schultz, Four Peaks co-founder.

The brewers expect to close the acquisition during the first quarter of 2016. The specific terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
