Brewer Swinkels Family Brewers takes over Brouwerij de Molen completely. The owner of brands Bavaria and La Trappe already had a minority interest and now extends it to 100 percent. The current owners of Brouwerij de Molen not involved in the business operations but are fully engaged in the brewing of beer. Swinkels manages all other matters and makes its technical expertise and distribution channels available for the beers of the Brouwerij de Molen. Swinkels wants to grow further with the purchase and, with its beer portfolio, can offer local craft beers in more places. The beer brewer previously took over the importer of specialty beer Bier & cO and the Belgian brewery Palm and entered into a partnership with the Spanish Moritz to grow in the specialty beers market.
