Two Florida Breweries Become One as Big Storm Brewing Buys Darwin Brewing
Big Storm Brewing, based in Clearwater, Florida has purchased Darwin Brewing, located in the nearby town of Bradenton.
According to an article in the Tampa Bay Times, discussions between Big Storm and Darwin date back years, but the “stress and pressure” of the pandemic pushed Darwin’s owners to reach out about closing a deal.
It is another in a growing list of “craft on craft” deals that has picked up the pace in recent months across the country as small brewers look for ways to gain efficiencies in challenging times.
