Firestone Walker to Acquire Cali-Squeeze from SLO Brewing Co. •

Firestone Walker plans to support the rapid growth of Cali-Squeeze, while SLO Brewing Co. will focus on other promising brands in itsportfolio.

PASO ROBLES – Firestone Walker, a craft brewer that has been in business for 25 years, and SLO Brewing Company announced on 15… April announced that they have signed a definitive agreement whereby Firestone Walker will acquire the Cali-Squeeze brand from SLO Brewing Company.

Packed with refreshing real fruit juices and a smooth hefeweizen body, Cali-Squeeze was launched in 2017 and was an instant hit. The infused brand came to the attention of Firestone Walker after noticing its rapid growth and success.

We have been good friends with Hamish and Rod for over 20 years and have been impressed with their dedication to innovation and the way they bring their brands to life, said David Walker, co-founder of Firestone Walker. Cali-Squeeze introduces us to a unique style of beer that we like to call Fruit with Benefits. As a craft brewer with traditional hops, we have seen these styles evolve and saw in Cali-Squeeze a beer to help us in this discovery.

Since its founding in 1996, Firestone Walker has grown into California’s premier craft brewery, with brands like 805, Union Jack and Mind Haze, as well as a history of vintage ale programming. Firestone Walker believes its state-of-the-art brewery and distribution platform will take Cali-Squeeze to the next level and make new friends along the way. Cali-Squeeze retains its own identity and brings a new beer style and brand offering to the Firestone Walker family.

SLO Brew is more than a craft brewery, it’s an incubator for innovative brands. Cali-Squeeze has been a huge success for us and has quickly become a West Coast favorite, says Hamish Marshall, co-owner of SLO Brewing Company. Our talented team of brewers and marketers know how to capture the zeitgeist and create new and exciting beverages for an evolving market. This sale gives us the opportunity to invest in what we do best: developing and growing new and innovative brands such as Tio Rodrigo Craft Micheladas, Porch Pounder and Rod & Hammer’s SLO Stills whiskies.

No details of the transaction were disclosed, except that it will be completed within a year. July is expected, subject to normal closing conditions. SLO Brewing Co will continue to produce Cali Squeeze during the transition to maintain inventory on shelves in the western United States.
