In craft beer, collaboration and shared knowledge is a large part of the culture. After brewing beer for Alpine for about a year, Green Flash Brewing has officially announced that they have acquired Alpine Brewing. Beer nerds have no fear, each brewery will remain independent to operate and maintain their own brands and culture. Pat McIlhenney will remain Alpine’s president and brewmaster to oversee all operations of Alpine Beer Co. while also ensuring Alpine beers continue to meet their standard of quality, whether brewed at the Alpine or Green Flash facilities. The most exciting change will happen over the next several years, as Alpine beer will become available to fans from across the country that have only experienced the greatness of Alpine beers while visiting California. Rejoice!
