A-B InBev to close U.K. brewery

August 18, 2015

Anheuser-Busch InBev plans to close the historic Stag brewery beside the Thames River in London by the end of the year.
 
One of the oldest brewing sites in the United Kingdom, the Stag brewery produced Budweiser for the U.K. market. It had been slated to be closed in 2009 after InBev’s $52 billion takeover in November 2008 of St. Louis-based Anheuser-Busch, but was given a reprieve due to strong demand for the brand in the U.K.
 
Now the brewery will be sold for redevelopment, A-B InBev confirmed to industry publication just-drinks, which said 100 people work at the site.
 
A-B InBev officials said the company’s Magor and Samlesbury breweries are able to handle the additional volume from Stag’s closure.
 
Belgium-based Anheuser-Busch InBev has its North American base in St. Louis.
