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 Brixton Brewery. 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.”
