CANarchy Strikes at Oskar Blues As A New Platform Emerges

Oskar Blues Holding Company, the name given to the portfolio of breweries containing Perrin, Cigar City, Squatters and Wasatch, and Oskar Blues itself, is changing its name to CANarchy to create a brand that more properly reflects their breweries and goals. This group of brewers, majority owned by Fireman Capital, are creating a platform by which small craft brewers can grow independently together. The collective makes them one of the only platforms giving brewers full control of their business and brand, allowing them to control their direction and scale of production. By sharing industry knowledge and networks, brewing, canning, and distribution of craft beer will become much easier for member breweries, all without compromising their independence.
