The year-end spending spree for Anheuser-Busch InBev continues. In the same week they announced their purchases of Four Peaks Brewing in Tempe, Arizona, and London-based Camden Town Brewery, the world’s largest brewing company announced the acquisition of Breckenridge Brewery of Littleton, Colorado.

“They are innovative and have built an amazing business that’s enabled them to get their great beers to fans across the country,” said Andy Goeler, CEO, Craft, The High End (A-B InBev’s stable of craft brands). “We look forward to even more growth together.”

Breckenridge Brewery is currently available in 35 states, with an annual production of 70,000 barrels. The announcement comes on the heels of Breckenridge’s announcement of a line of nitro-infused tallboy cans of Lucky U IPA and Nitro Vanilla Porter.

“We’re excited about the partnership and have been encouraged to continue on our path and become more innovative moving forward,” said Todd Usry, President of Breckenridge Brewery, via press release. “I’m a believer in what The High End is focused on accomplishing and we are flattered that our team was chosen to help guide that journey. We’re looking forward to utilizing resources like decades of research and brewing expertise as we continue to create new beers.”

The terms of the sale were not disclosed. Both the acquisition and Nitro Series will be completed in the first quarter of 2016.
