New York and Houston, Texas—Today, Anheuser-Busch announced an agreement to acquire Karbach Brewing Co., a leading Texas craft brewer and one of the country’s fastest-growing craft brands. Karbach joins a diverse portfolio of craft breweries within The High End, the business unit within Anheuser-Busch that focuses on its craft and import brands.Karbach is:
- Five years old
- Growing like a weed (17k in 2013, 40k in 2014, etc)
- On the move--from Houston to Dallas and an even newer bigger better.
- The maker of a generic line-up of beers (two IPAs, a pale, a kolsch, a wheat, a lager) that have a middling reputation.
And of course, we have the updated map as a parting gift.
