Congrats craft brewers, you’re in a booming market right now, and if you’ve made it this far already, hopefully you have more money coming in than you know what to do with. Savvy business owners will read an article like this one and manage that cash flow properly to build an even bigger, better business. Some established craft brewers may have the opportunity to cash in — selling the business they birthed to sail into the craft beer sunset. It’s a bittersweet moment to be sure (the pile of cash tends to help), but what would happen to your brewery after you’ve moved on?
We turn to Forbes, which profiled Blue Point Brewing Co. after its $24 million sale to AB-InBev. Craft Brewing Business caught wind of the sale back in February 2014. Back then, Big Beer said that the brewery would stay put in Patchogue, N.Y., and that the company would continue to pump money into the growing craft brewery. So what happened to t Blue Point’s craft brewing identity since handing the keys over to Big Beer Boss Man? Watch the video above to find out and then post a comment below answering this question: How much would it take for you to consider selling your brewery, and does it matter who it goes to?
