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.

Under the agreement, Breckenridge joins The High End, AB-InBev’s unit consisting of a smattering of craft beer brands the giant acquired in recent years such as Goose Island Beer Co., Blue Point Beer Co. and Elysian Brewing Co.

Breckenridge, which sells its beers to 35 states, is on track to produce 70,000 barrels of beer in 2015.
