In early November, Canadian cannabis company Aphria struck a $300 million deal to acquire Atlanta’s Sweetwater Brewing Company — the maker of the 420 Extra Pale Ale brand and other cannabis-themed products.
This week’s edition of the Brewbound Podcast discusses the opportunities and challenges ahead for the combined company, the size of the cannabeer market and more with:
- Liz Connors, director of analytics for Headset, a firm that tracks cannabis data and analytics;
- Rick Maturo, associate director of client services for the cannabis practice at Nielsen;
- And Sean McNulty, host of the Selling Craft Beer podcast.
McNulty and the Brewbound team also discuss growing e-commerce player goPuff’s deal to acquire BevMo, Tree House branching out in Massachusetts, Mark Anthony investing in another production facility to make White Claw, Diageo recalling Guinness 0.0 and more.
