Golden Brands, a subsidiary of the Reyes Beer Division company, has officially closed on its acquisition of certain distribution rights from Saccani Distributing Company in Sacramento, California.
Tom Reyes, President of Reyes Beer Division West, said, “I want to thank Saccani Distributing for being great partners during this process. Bringing these brands to our existing portfolio in the area will be a great addition to our business.”
The acquisition added 1.5 million cases to Golden Brands’ existing operations in Northern California and included key brands from suppliers such as Lagunitas Brewing Company, Pabst Brewing Company, Stone Brewing, Four Loko producer Phusion Projects, and the Belching Beaver Brewery.
Saccani Distributing was founded in April 1933, after the repeal of Prohibition, and for many years was the local distributor of Pabst Blue Ribbon. It also distributed many craft beers in recent years.
Reyes Holdings, parent company of the Reyes Beer Division, is the ninth largest privately held company in the U.S. with nearly $30 billion in annual sales.
