Deschutes Brewery has announced the acquisition of Boneyard Beer. Both breweries are located in Bend, Oregon.
This will be the first acquisition for Deschutes long 33 year history. In a statement, the two companies called the deal “a unique, Bend-based, local-to-local, craft-to-craft partnership.”
Boneyard Beer co-founder Tony Lawrence worked at Deschutes for 12 years prior to starting the 15,000 barrel capacity Boneyard in 2010. Founded in 1988 Deschutes Brewery is now the nation’s 11th largest craft brewery.
