Flat12 Welcomes Books & Brews’ Wuerfel as New Owner

The Flat12 team is excited to announce we have changed ownership, as we welcome Books & Brews owner, Jason Wuerfel, as our new CEO.

The Flat12 production team, led by our Head Brewer, Sean Lewis, has been contract brewing Books & Brews’ beers for the past two years, so it was a natural move for our organizations to join forces. Aggressive adaptation is necessary in this increasingly competitive craft beer landscape, and the move will allow both of our companies to continue to produce the beers, events and ambience our consumers have come to love.

“As Books & Brews grew, we got to a critical point where you start to look at the numbers,” Wuerfel said. “Really, the purchase came out of our relationship with the brewers there​.”​

Consumers are unlikely to notice any changes to either of the establishments as a result of this acquisition. Current staff for both businesses will continue on to lead their respective brands. Core beer portfolios will remain unchanged and we will continue brewing innovative beers and hosting the quirky events and community initiatives that put us on the map.

“We are excited to welcome Jason, and the entire Books and Brews team to the Flat12 family. Flat12 will continue to produce the beers and events our community rallies around. Our breweries will collaborate to continue to make high quality, exciting beers, in a wide variety of beer styles,” said Marketing & Events Director, Valerie Green.
