AB InBev is acquiring Karbach Brewing Co, a leading Texas craft brewer and one of the fastest -growing craft brands in the US. Karbach joins a diverse portfolio of craft breweries within The High End, the business unit within Anheuser-Busch that focuses on its craft and import brands.

In 2013, just two years after Karbach launched, the brewery produced 17,000 barrels of beer, reaching 40,000 barrels just over a year later. The brewery then expanded capacity by building a new brewhouse at the end of 2014, equipped with the latest state-of-the-art technology and innovative equipment. Karbach opened an on-site restaurant, tap room, and biergarten last May. The company expanded from Houstonto the Dallas/Ft. Worth metroplex region in June of 2015.

Anheuser-Busch plans to invest in Karbach to realize a brewing capacity of 150,000 barrels per year by 2019.

“Karbach has built a unique, thriving brand rooted in the Texas spirit,” says Felipe Szpigel, president, The High End. “From the beginning, they have shown creativity and passion with the super beers they brew, and they’ve been able to use their unique offerings to appeal to the laid back lifestyle that resonates with Texans. Pair these qualities with dynamic leadership, an amazing brewing team, and a dream to do more, and you have a recipe for a promising future together.”
