The biggest drinks acquisitions of 2019

Boston Beer Co. acquires Dogfish Head Brewing for US$300m

In May, Boston Beer Co, which produces Sam Adams, agreed to buy Dogfish Head Brewery in a deal which sees two of the country’s pioneering craft breweries join forces.

The acquisition, which is estimated to be worth $300 million, was the largest in Boston Beer’s history.

Boston Beer has also put forward $173 million to buy back a stake in the Delaware brewery currently owned by private equity firm LNK Partners.

    What about the fact that Constellation just sold off Ballast Point, which they originally purchased for $1B after just 4 years??
