After three years with Golden Road Brewing, brewmaster Jesse Houck has departed the company and accepted a new position as Maui Brewing Company’s director of brewery operations, Brewbound has learned.

We’re pleased to announce that video playback from last week’s Brew Talks meetup, held at Golden Road Brewing in Los Angeles, Calif., is now available for video playback. During the evening’s first conversation, Brian Mulvaney, the senior vice president of Bank of America’s beverage finance division, discussed investment strategies for craft brewers. In a second discussion, Golden Road co-founder, Meg Gill, and Paul Burgis, the brewery’s COO/CFO, explained the circumstances that led them to explore a sale to Anheuser-Busch InBev.
Brewbound is pleased to have both Gill and Burgis join tomorrow’s Brew Talks event, being held at the “side lawn,” located next to the Golden Road Brewery pub, to discuss, in-depth, why the company was sold. In a moderated question-and-answer session with Brewbound editor Chris Furnari, the pair will discuss the circumstances that led to a sale and how greater interest as well as investments from international players is impacting the broader craft sector, particularly in California.

Anheuser-Busch InBev today announced it would acquire Los Angeles-based Golden Road Brewing. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed and the deal is expected to close before the end of the year. Golden Road launched in 2011 and expects to sell 45,000 barrels of beer this year. It is the largest craft brewery in Los Angeles.
When Golden Road Brewing co-founders Meg Gill and Tony Yanow wrote their first business plan, initial forecasts called for 60,000 barrels of beer by year five. Now, midway through its fourth full year, the brewery is on pace to sell 45,000 barrels, and it will likely exceed the 60,000 barrel threshold in 2016, Gill told Brewbound. So, with the expiration date on its first five-year plan just 18 months away, we checked in on the company’s plans the next phase of growth.
