A new holiday celebrating small and independent craft breweries begins the Sunday following Thanksgiving – Small Brewery Sunday. The December 1, 2019 celebration encourages beer lovers to support small and independent U.S. breweries and to seek the independent craft brewer seal.
Why is it important to visit craft breweries throughout the year? Every dollar a beer lover spends at a craft brewery fuels a small business that supports the economic health of its local community.
Starr Hill Brewery's beer hall and rooftop bar in Scott’s Addition will open Saturday, Dec. 7.
The Charlottesville area-based brewery announced the Richmond venture at 3406 W. Leigh St. in February.
The beer hall, which shares a building with Tazza Kitchen restaurant, is over 4,500 square feet, plus a 3,000-square-foot rooftop bar and a 1,000-square-foot deck.
Anheuser-Busch InBev and Craft Brew Alliance (CBA) announced today that the world’s largest beer company will acquire the remaining 68.8% of CBA that it did not own for $16.50 per share in cash.
The deal is expected to close in 2020, subject to customary closing conditions, including approval of the CBA shareholders unaffiliated with A-B and regulatory approvals.
At the close of trading Monday, CBA stock (BREW) was valued at $7.33 per share. However, in after hours trading, the stock jumped to more than $16 per share.
“By combining our resources, our talented teammates and dynamic brands, we will look to nurture the growth of CBA’s existing portfolio as we continue investing in innovation to meet the changing needs of today’s beverage consumers, all while delivering certainty of value to our shareholders,” Andy Thomas, the CEO of CBA, said in a press release.
