(Daleville, Virginia – March 23rd, 2023) – Today, New Belgium Brewing announced an agreement to acquire Constellation Brands’ 259,000 square foot production brewery in Daleville, Va. This agreement pertains to the facility itself and will include offers for continued employment by New Belgium for all current employees, but the acquisition does not include any brands. The deal is expected to close in early May.
The acquisition will expand New Belgium’s existing production capacity to help meet growing demand for its industry-leading craft beer portfolio – including Voodoo Ranger, America’s #1 IPA brand family. Upon completion of the deal, New Belgium – the largest and fastest-growing U.S. craft brewery – will immediately commence brewing at Daleville, focusing on Voodoo Ranger Juice Force IPA (the top U.S. craft beer launch of all time in 2022) and its high-velocity 2023 sequel Fruit Force IPA.
