The Actual Owners of Craft Breweries

Axios has a good write-up reminding us that some of our beloved “craft” breweries are actually owned by some of the largest corporations in the beer industry. Some that surprised me:

  • Ballast Point (Constellation Brands – Corona, Modelo, etc…)
  • Elysian (InBev)
  • Goose Island (InBev)
  • Lagunitas (Heineken)
  • Terrapin (MillerCoors)
  • Wicked Weed (InBev) (I knew this one, obviously, since it was big news in North Carolina when it happened. It felt like it belonged on the list, though.)
