Craft beer companies are hot and I am interested as well as some limited partners and private equity friends. Green Flash was just an startup when I moved to San Diego and now the are number 49 nationwide in the US! I have few industry experts at my fingertips and would enjoy speaking 15 minutes or 2 day strategy meeting in DC or SoCal! The Brewers Association estimates that craft brands more than doubled their share of the $100 billion beer market, to 11%, in the past four years, while sales of mass-market beer stagnated. In 2015, 19 craft-beer deals worth $13 billion were announced in the U.S., according to research firm Dealogic. AB InBev, MillerCoors, Constellation Brands, and Heineken—which together control 81% of the U.S. market—all announced deals.
