Anchor Brewing Company SOLD.

In perhaps one of the greatest surprises ever in the craft brewing industry, the Anchor Brewing Company has sold.

It was announced today that the Griffin Group, an investment and consulting company focused on beverage alcohol brands has acquired Anchor Brewing Company, including its portfolio of artisan spirits.

The Griffin Group, headquartered in Novato, Marin County is led Keith Greggor and Tony Foglio who built the Skyy Vodka label. Additional affiliated companies to be held under the newly named “Anchor Brewers & Distillers” include Preiss Imports, a specialist spirits and beer importer, and BrewDog USA, the US division of the leading UK craft beer.

More details to come.
