Sapporo U.S.A., a beer maker, has acquired Stone Brewing, a craft beer brand.

Sapporo increases brewing capacity on both sides of the United States, increasing production.

“We approached Stone Brewing seeking a partner for our growth plans in the U.S, and we quickly recognized they were an ideal partner with bi-coastal brewing capacity, loyal fans and superb management,” said Kenny Sadai, chairman of Sapporo U.S.A. “This acquisition puts the resources and legacy of the largest Asian beer brand in America together with one of the most innovative and recognized craft beer brands.”
