Multinational brewer Heineken has announced the full acquisition of Brixton Brewery for an undisclosed sum.
The acquisition comes three years after Heineken bought a 49% stake in the firm. According to sources, the founders of Brixton Brewery will continue leading the company operations.
Jez Galaun, founder of Brixton Brewery commented: “When we look back over the past seven years, we honestly can’t believe how far we’ve come – from home brewing to starting a small brewery, to building a highly recognisable community-based brand, with a large new brewery and tap room”.
Jochen Van Esch, craft development director at Heineken, said: “We are incredibly excited about the next chapter. Brixton Brewery will continue to operate as a separate entity. Our investment and support will mean the founders can stay in charge of day-to-day management of the company and its creative direction, and we can help develop retail opportunities, support with supply chain expertise and facilitate collaborations”.
