AB InBev to take over Blue Point Brewing Co.

Blue-Point-Brewing-LogoOn Wednesday, February 5, it was announced that AB InBev would take ownership of Long Island brewery, Blue Point Brewing Company. The brewery will remain in control of their product, but will add on the big financial and marketing power of the “Big Three” beer company (Is it “Big Two” now that Coors and Miller are one?). They will not be the first craft brewery to be taken over by one of the Big 3. In 2011 AB Inbev took over Goose Island in a similar deal, as well as Boulevard Brewing Company, and Belgium’s Duvel.

How do you feel about the “Big Three” beer companies buying smaller craft breweries? Tell us in the comments.
