Anheuser-Busch Acquires Elysian Brewing

Anheuser-Busch has announced they will be purchasing Elysian Brewing, and its four brewpubs for an undisclosed amount. The sale will be completed by the end of the first quarter.

“For two decades, we’ve welcomed guests into our brewpubs and served them creative and impeccably crafted beers,” said Joe Bisacca, Elysian ‎CEO and co-founder, who will continue with Elysian along with his partners, Dick Cantwell and David Buhler. “After a lot of hard work, we’ve grown from one Seattle brewpub to four pub locations and a production brewery. With the support of Anheuser-Busch, we will build on past successes and share our beers with more beer lovers moving forward.”

The deal includes Seattle Airport Way brewery, and four Seattle brewpubs: Elysian Capitol Hill, Elysian Tangletown, Elysian Fields and Elysian BAR.

    How crazy does everyone go over Bourbon County? Lets all remember that good beer is good beer no matter who owns it.

    No issue with trying to get better distribution channels but that Super Bowl ad Bud ran that insulted those who have started Elysian is just wrong.

    These loyal customers had their own funeral for Elysian and moved on.
