US: Boston Beer Co acquires Coney Island brand
The Boston Beer Co has bought the Coney Island brand from Shmaltz Brewing Company.
Shmaltz will continue to brew and sell Coney Island for two years under licence from Boston Beer subsidiary A&S Brewing Collaborative, Boston Beer said yesterday (26 August). Shmaltz’s founder, Jeremy Cowan, will also advise A&S on Coney Island matters for two years.
The deal, completed yesterday for an undisclosed fee, includes “some brewery equipment and other assets” related to the Coney Island brand, Boston Beer said.
Shmaltz has changed its name from Coney Island Brewing Company and retains the He'brew range of craft lagers, which includes the Messiah Nut Brown Ale and the Jewbelation.
Earlier this month Boston Beer Co reported that it had bounced back from a poor Q1 to post a healthy jump in first-half profits.
