Anheuser-Busch has made a play for a piece of Colorado’s craft-brew market, snapping up Breckenridge Brewery for an undisclosed sum, officials announced Tuesday.

Breckenridge will join The High End, AB InBev’s stable of craft-beer brands acquired in recent years, including Goose Island Beer Co., Blue Point Beer Co. and Elysian Brewing Co. The transaction is expected to close in the first quarter of next year.

Breckenridge, which is owned by Breckenridge-Wynkoop LLC, sells its beers in 35 states and is on track to produce 70,000 barrels of beer in 2015. The 25-year-old brewery is Colorado’s sixth-largest craft brewer by barrels produced, according to Brewers Association data.

Earlier this year, Breckenridge left its Denver digs for a 12-acre brewery and restaurant in Littleton. The deal includes the new brewery and the Farm House restaurant, as well as the original brewpub and innovation center in the town of Breckenridge.
