Brewing news USA, MI: Saugatuck Brewing Company’s acquisition of Gonzo’s Biggdogg Brewing gets approval

The Michigan Liquor Control Commission and Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau signed off on the acquisition of Gonzo’s Biggdogg Brewing by Saugatuck Brewing Company, WWMT-TV reported on September 28.

Saugatuck Brewing, from Douglas, Michigan, announced in March 2019 that they planned to acquire Biggdogg Brewing. The tap room in Kalamazoo will have Saugatuck Brewing beers on tap and have planned a “Mega Final Grand Reopening Celebration Weekend” starting Thursday, Oct. 1, 2020.

“We could not be more excited and honored to finally be an official part of Kalamazoo,” Saugatuck Brewing Company President and CEO Ric Gillette said.

Saugatuck Brewing said the tap room would be closed Sept. 28 through Sept. 30 to prepare for the reopening celebration weekend. Doors would be opened noon Oct. 1 as Saugatuck Brewing Company Kalamazoo.

“I am most thankful for the staff at Saugatuck Brewing Company Kalamazoo,” Gillette said. “They have really stuck with us through the thick and thin. There have been some tough times waiting this out and they have all been in great spirits throughout.”

The brewing company will be honoring Emotional Wellness Month by making donations to Gryphon Place of Kalamazoo.

Saugatuck said when the acquisition was announced in 2019 that the pint club memberships of Gonzo’s Biggdogg Brewing would be honored and would receive the same benefits that Saugatuck Brewing Company pint club members receive.
