Anheuser-Busch InBev has acquired another U.S. craft brewery. This time it’s Houston, Texas based Karbach Brewing.
Karbach has been operating for nearly 5 years. The news comes on the heels of A-B InBev purchasing homebrew supply giant Northern Brewer.
The terms of the deal have not been disclosed. The brewery states this move was about “resources” and the need to grow. The brewery will join AB InBev’s craft division, alongside other acquisitions like Goose Island, Blue Point, Elysian, Golden Road, and more.
The brewery’s only response to the acquisition came today, via Facebook:
We’re excited to announce that we’ve entered into a partnership with Anheuser-Busch to join their High End division. In the 5 years we’ve in business, we’ve been blown away by the outpouring of support for our beers and culture.
In fact, we’ve been overwhelmed with brewing and selling quality beer to drinkers across Texas. This partnership will allow us to continue to grow and focus more on brewing new and exciting beers for you to enjoy.
We’re still a Texas brewery, with Texas employees, making great Texas beer on Karbach Street.
Karbach Brewing’s year-round lineup includes Love Street Kolsch, Hopadillo IPA, and Weekend Warrior Pale Ale.
