BeerPulse - Wed, 12/17/2014 - 06:16

Press Release: 

Spain’s Leading Brewer Invests in Founders with Shared Commitment To Build Long-Term Growth in Craft Beer Industry

(Grand Rapids, MI) – Founders Brewing Co. has announced a partnership with Mahou San Miguel, who is coming on as a minority investor with 30% ownership in the brewery.

The partnership will help Founders grow through Mahou’s international distribution network to access the emerging craft beer community around the world. Founders and Mahou are focused on long-term strategic growth, with a commitment to brand longevity and product quality. “Founders will remain Founders,” with continuity in their recipes, processes, facility and staff.

“We knew that taking on a partner was the necessary, responsible thing to do for the future of Founders because it would open up new doors for growth as well as ensure our legacy for years to come,” said CEO and Co-Founder Mike Stevens. “We spent a long time determining who would be the best partner to help us grow Founders while staying true to our beers and our culture. Mahou shares our family values and a commitment to their communities; they also believe in the importance of long-term partnerships. We are honored to be working with a brewer that commands so much respect.”

“Our investment in Founders is a great source of learning, innovation and transformation for Mahou San Miguel to get directly involved in the U.S. craft market,” said Javier López del Hierro, President of Mahou San Miguel. “It’s the most valuable beer market worldwide, a market that sets consumer trends, with excellent prospects for growth. Founders combines product excellence with a level of business acumen that stands out in the craft beer segment.”

Robert W. Baird & Co. is serving as exclusive financial advisor to Founders Brewing Co. in the transaction. Greenberg Traurig is acting as the company’s legal advisor. The deal is expected to close in January 2015.

About Founders Brewing Co.
Established in 1997 by two craft beer enthusiasts—Dave Engbers and Mike Stevens—with day jobs and a dream, Founders Brewing Co. brews complex, in-your-face ales, with huge aromatics and tons of flavor. Founders ranks among the top 30 largest craft breweries in the U.S. and is one of the fastest growing. The brewery has received numerous awards from the World Beer Cup and the Great American Beer Festival, and RateBeer and BeerAdvocate users often rate its beers among the best in the world.

Founded in Madrid in 1890, Mahou purchased San Miguel Brewery in 2000, followed by the incorporation of Canary Islands brand Reina in 2004 and Cervezas Alhambra in 2007. It also diversified its business with the acquisition of Solán de Cabras, a natural mineral water, in 2011. The company’s extensive national beer portfolio includes category leaders such as Mahou Cinco Estrellas, San Miguel Especial, Alhambra Reserva 1925 and San Miguel ECO, Spain’s first organic beer. The brewery also distributes a wide range of quality international beers in Spain as a result of agreements with partners such as Carlsberg and Warsteiner.
