Rumor has it that North American Breweries Inc. is set to acquire Magic Hat Brewing Co. It is assumed that this sale will be of International Brewers United Inc. and North American Breweries would acquire Pyramid Breweries of Seattle as well. Though, details are sketchy as no one from any of the breweries will confirm or deny any of the reports. Hopefully a sale like this allows Magic Hat to produce and distribute some more of their lesser known beers while still keeping the quality that we expect from them. Magic Hat is already available in 26 states; it's probably safe to assume this will give them the distribution to become a truly national brand.
Another possible effect of this acquisition would be that we could see more Pyramid brews distributed on the east coast.
That's about enough speculation for right now, I will wait to hear official word before I start to demand a wider distribution of Odd Notion...
