ST. LOUIS – The Bud Knight has conquered yet another kingdom!

According to a Monday announcement,  Anheuser-Busch acquired The Craft Brew Alliance which includes Widmer Brothers and Redhook Brewing companies for less than it could have just a few months ago. The biggest surprise was the price at which they bought the company at; a mere $16.50 per share.

In 2016 Busch struck a deal with the craft brew alliance to buy the company for an increased price at $22 dollars a share that year. Then $23.50 in year two and $24.50 in year three, but that deal failed to happen.  Last summer when White Claw rose to popularity the beer markets were affected, and shares of craft brew plummeted to less than $8 dollars.

Craft brew alliance includes several big-name beers like Kona, Omission, Square Mile Cider and many more.
