Anheuser-Busch InBev has acquired Four Peaks Brewing Company of Tempe, Arizona. The latest brewery to succumb to temptation expects to brew 70,000 barrels of beer in 2015. It was born in Tempe in 1996 but now has four pubs around the Phoenix area.
Anheuser-Busch noted its plans to make Four Peaks part of a unit called the High End. The High End unit is intended to provide “unique craft and European import brands with autonomy and support for growth,” according to A-B.
“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, a Four Peaks co-founder in a statement released by Anheuser-Busch on its website. “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.”
Terms of the sale have not been disclosed. According to the Arizona Republic, representatives of Four Peaks were not yet available for comment.
