Curtis advises on the sale of market leading Italian craft beer maker to A.B. InBev


Rome, April 26, 2016 – Curtis has advised on the sale of Italy’s leading craft beer maker, Birra del Borgo to Anheuser-Busch InBev, the world’s largest brewer.  
Curtis Italy advised the founders of Birra del Borgo and the other shareholders, which include the Italian food and beverage specialist Eataly. 
The deal closed on 20 April, 2016.  It is the second craft brewery acquisition for A.B. Bev in 2016 and follows the acquisition of U.S. craft beer Devil’s Backbone earlier this month. 
The agreement sees Birra del Borgo become a wholly-owned subsidiary of Anheuser-Busch InBev.  
The Curtis team was led by Curtis Italy partner Sergio Esposito Farber, as well as partners Ian Tully and Dino Dima, counsel Carmine Gravina and Dario Ciapponi and Alessandro Bianchi.
