Heineken has purchased the remaining shares in Beavertown, assuming full ownership of London’s largest brewery.
As part of the agreement, founder Logan Plant will step down as CEO and take on an advisory role, with Jochen Van Esch taking on the new managing director position.
Heineken UK first purchased a minority share in Beavertown in 2018, and the company has invested significantly in the brand since. Beavertown will continue to be operated separately from Heineken UK.
Logan Plant describes the deal as: “The natural next step for Beavertown, its brands, and most importantly, its people. With Heineken UK, we have a partner who provides support, advice and investment, and gives us the space to flourish.”
“Beavertown’s journey will not see huge change because the strategy is right. We will support, invest and grow the company, and I am incredibly excited about the future,” added Jochen Van Esch, managing director of Beavertown.
