Seaport Capital Acquires Keg Logistics

DENVER, CO and NEW YORK, NY — Private equity firm Seaport Capital (“Seaport”) announced today that it has acquired Keg Logistics LLC (“Keg Logistics” or “the Company”), an outsourced keg management provider that services local, regional and national craft breweries in the U.S., Canada and U.K. The existing management team and Bregal Sagemount, the prior majority owner of the business, reinvested alongside Seaport in the transaction. The Keg Logistics management team will continue to lead the Company. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

Bill Luby, Partner at Seaport Capital, discussed the acquisition, stating, “Keg Logistics has exhibited exceptional growth since its founding. We are extremely impressed with the Company’s ability to add new brewers to the platform, all while servicing and growing existing customer relationships. Chris Sapyta and the team at Keg Logistics have demonstrated that their deep relationships with brewers and their understanding of brewers’ priorities position the Company for continued growth.”

“We are looking forward to partnering with Seaport in the coming years,” said Keg Logistics CEO Chris Sapyta. “Their team has proven its ability to understand the craft beer market, and we believe that Seaport is the right fit for Keg Logistics as we pursue our various growth opportunities and expand the services that we can provide. In addition to keg financing, we are the only keg provider that has a keg management solution and now can provide craft brewers with mobile canning services and financing.”
