Four Peaks Brewing
Sold to: Anheuser-Busch InBev
That's going to change this year, after the 20-year-old brewery and its Kilt Lifter Scottish Ale leave the comforts of its multiple Arizona restaurants for more expansive distribution. Like Breckenridge, it produced about 70,000 barrels of beer last year and has an extremely high profile in its home state. Unlike Breckenridge, however, it never had the chance to show what it could do beyond that home state. This buyout gives Four Peaks a chance to break out and seek a bigger audience, but it also signals an end to its days as Arizona's little brewery that could.
