Belgium-based beer giant Anheuser-Busch has revealed plans to acquire Los Angeles-based Golden Road Brewing for an undisclosed amount.

The brewery will join Anheuser-Busch’s portfolio consisting of Goose Island Beer Company, Blue Point Brewing, 10 Barrel Brewing and Elysian Brewing on acquisition.

?Golden Road Brewing president and co-founder Meg Gill said: "The energy and passion of the beer community is what drew me into this industry and with Golden Road we wanted to help develop the craft beer market in L A.

"Our team worked hard to build Golden Road from the ground up and we are proud of the growth we’ve achieved in such a short time. California is an exciting and competitive market for beer and I see endless opportunities in partnering with Anheuser-Busch and their incredible distribution network to bring our beers to more people."

Currently, Golden Road Brewing comprises of a brewery focused on draft and can production, a pub in Los Angeles and a new tasting room downtown.

In addition, a second production brewery and pub in Anaheim will be operational by late 2016, besides a new tasting room which is slated to open this year.

The deal is expected to enable the brewery to bring more of its canned beer and core brands including Point the Way IPA, Wolf Among Weeds IPA, Golden Road Hefeweizen and 329 Days of Sun Lager to the local market while also expanding the market for its range of hop-forward beers.

The transaction is expected to be completed later this year.

Golden Road, which is sold in more 4,000 retail outlets, has targeted to sell approximately 45,000 barrels of beer this year.
