Evergreen, CO – July, 2021 – 1stWEST Mergers and Acquisitions, a leading investment banking and M&A advisory, announced it served as an advisor and finder to SweetWater Brewing in its Acquisition of the Red Truck Brewing Company in Fort Collins, Colorado.

The opening of SweetWater’s new full-service brewery, production facility, and restaurant in Fort Collins – and SweetWater new Mountain Taphouse at DIA – helps to mark its Western expansion in the U.S.

In 2021, SweetWater Brewing celebrated 24 years of heady brews; it is the 11th largest craft brewery in the U.S., according to Brewers Association. In 2020, SweetWater was acquired by Aphria Inc., now Tilray, Inc. (TSX:TLRY and Nasdaq: TLRY), a leading global cannabis company.

Martin Saylor, the Managing Director for 1stWEST M&A who leads the craft brewing sector, worked with SweetWater on its acquisition of Red Truck Brewing Company.

“SweetWater is widely considered an elite brand in the craft beer sector – sample their fine products and you’ll see why – and we are pleased that our team at 1stWEST M&A could play a role in its acquisition of Red Truck,” said Martin Saylor. “Visitors to the Fort Collins location will now have a broader choice in fine beverages, and they no doubt welcome Sweetwater’s new proprietorship.”
