The celebration will … Continue reading →

Breaking: Anheuser-Busch buying Elysian Brewing!

The news is all over the internet and social media this morning: Anheuser-Busch is buying Seattle’s Elysian Brewing! I am completely stunned by this news, even moreso than the 10 Barrel news from last year—I never would have though Elysian would sell to AB. From the AB press release: Anheuser-Busch today announced it has agreed to purchase Elysian Brewing Company, based in Seattle, Washington. For nearly 20 years, Elysian has brewed an award-winning portfolio of … Continue reading →
