Acquired Loughran Brewing Stores in UK to supply 1,000 breweries in Ireland, UK and Europe

Loughran Brewing Stores, a family business based in Dundalk led by James Loughran, has acquired Brewers Select based in Peterborough, UK. The combined companies will have sales of around EUR 12 million.

rewers Select was established to supply brewing ingredients and equipment to meet the needs of the craft beer industry in the UK.

The enlarged company – Loughran Brewers Select – will supply over 1,000 breweries in Ireland, the UK and Europe.

Brewers Select have relationships with around 800 breweries in the UK

Loughran is now the seventh generation of his family to grow barley in Dundalk since the first crop was planted in 1908. He founded Loughran Brewing Stores in 2014 as a ‘value added’ option for grain.

Loughran also co-founded Leinster Environmentals, Ireland’s largest plastics recycling company.

Now the company has relationships with almost all craft breweries in Ireland – it’s believed there are close to 100 of them.

Brewers Select have relationships with around 800 breweries in the UK.

“But it tends to be smaller. Their average spend per customer in the UK is lower than our Irish sales per customer,” said Loughran.

We are very excited to introduce these fantastic hops to these British brewers

“It’s about selling more to existing Brewers Select customers, selling more to existing customers.

“And we will do that by expanding the range that Brewers Select sells. We have great relationships with a small number of producers in the US and distribute for them in Ireland and the UK. So we are really looking forward to introducing these British brewers to this fantastic hop that we are bringing with us.”

Loughran Brewing Stores employs 10 people at Clermont Farms in Haggardstown, Dundalk, Co. Louth, while Brewers Select employs 14 people at its warehouse.

Grant Thornton advised on the transaction, Loughran’s first acquisition to date.
