Anheuser-Busch InBev Acquires UK Beer Subscription Service

Beer Hawk, a U.K.-based craft beer retailer owned by Anheuser-Busch InBev’s innovation and growth arm ZX Ventures, has acquired the BeerBods beer subscription service.

In a July 5 blog post, BeerBods co-founder Matt Lane wrote that his company was linking up with Beer Hawk to “build the U.K.’s leading retailer of craft beer.”

“It has become increasingly clear that in order for BeerBods to reach its full potential, we need a partner that can help take us to the next level,” he wrote. “We’ve therefore taken the decision to join forces with Beer Hawk who have acquired our business in full.”

Beer Hawk was acquired by ZX in 2016.
