Spain’s Leading Brewer Invests in Avery Brewing Co. with Shared Values and Commitment to Quality and Long-Term Growth in Craft Beer Industry
Boulder, Colorado, November 28, 2017 – Avery Brewing Co. has announced a partnership with Mahou San Miguel, who is coming on as a minority investor and long-term strategic partner in the brewery.
Avery Brewing and Mahou San Miguel are excited to focus on a continued promotion of organic growth of Avery Brewing in the evolving U.S. Craft Segment. Investments will support Avery Brewing in their recognized obsession for the highest quality craft beers, innovation, distributor and retailer relationships, customer experiences, and strategic growth.
“Dad and I decided 2 years ago that in order to fulfill our vision of the new brewery and all of Avery Brewing’s potential, it made a lot of sense to seek a partner” says Adam Avery, Founder of Avery Brewing. “At that time, we established our criteria for our perfect partner: Minority Investor, Privately Held and Family-Owned Entity, Long-Term Investment, Strategic Advantages, and Good People with Shared Values. Mahou San Miguel emphatically checked all of those boxes for us and is our ideal partner for continued growth, remaining faithful to our beers and our culture. It is with great satisfaction that we stand side by side such a respected family company with a dedicated focus on brewing and the future.”
Eduardo Petrossi, CEO, Mahou San Miguel adds, “This new alliance, between two family companies, has been possible thanks to the passion we share for beer and tradition, and that we have similar values. We share the commitment with the communities in which we are present, our long-term vision, concern for the development and well-being of individuals and our aim of doing things right, placing the consumer always at the centre of our decisions. Avery Brewing stands out due to the excellence of its beers, recognised on numerous occasions, with a focus on tradition, but also innovation, ingenuity and creativity.”
First Beverage Group is serving as exclusive financial advisor to Avery Brewing Co. in the transaction. The deal is expected to close in January 2018.
