Dogfish Head Brewery and The Boston Beer Co. — the maker of Samuel Adams Boston Lager — announced Thursday that they have reached an agreement to merge. The deal, which is expected to close late in the second quarter of this year, is valued at about $300 million in cash and stock.
The merged company is going to be led by the current CEO of Boston Beer, Dave Burwick.
If we were in a different leg of the trousers of time this would mean DHB prices would go down while their recipes stayed the same. But we’re in the leg where a semi-sentient pile of malicious orange peels is running the USA, so expect the post-merger batches of DHB to be sugar water with a splash of beer and the juice of half a raisin or something.
Better drink it while it’s still good.
