Coke buys local brewery

Swan Valley-based Feral Brewing Company has been sold to the business that bottles and distributes Coca-Cola in the Asia-Pacific region for an undisclosed sum.

In a Facebook post this morning, head brewer Brendan Varis said that after opening the brewery’s doors 15 years ago (almost to the day), the time had come to make a tough decision in the best interests of the company’s future.

The amount that Coca-Cola Amatil paid for the acquisition was not disclosed.
