MillerCoors announced today that its craft and import division, Tenth and Blake, will acquire a majority interest in San Diego’s Saint Archer Brewing Company.

Saint Archer, founded in 2013, forecasts a sale of 35,000 barrels this year, a 100 percent increase over last year’s sales, making it one of the fastest-growing breweries in California. The good news is that Tenth and Blake intends to keep Josh Landan, Saint Archer cofounder and president, at the helm.


LDW 2015: SoCal Beer Tour


What did you guys do for Labor Day? We drank beer. All weekend long. It’s not as profligate as it sounds; we paced ourselves.
