Artisanal Brewing Ventures



  • John Coleman – CEO

Primary Business

Artisanal Brewing Ventures is headquartered in Charlotte, NC and was formed in 2014 by the founders of Southern Tier Brewing Company and Ulysses Management, with the vision of creating a dynamic platform for best-in-class craft breweries in close partnership with their founders. Arbor’s investment in Artisanal Brewing Ventures was made in conjunction with the closing of the unique alliance between Southern Tier of Lakewood, NY and Victory Brewing Company of Downingtown, PA. This union presents a new model for craft beer partnerships by preserving brewery independence while pooling and capitalizing upon deep collective sales, marketing and administrative resources. Under the umbrella of ABV, Victory and Southern Tier independently operate their breweries, with an annual production capacity of over 800,000 barrels. This alliance creates one of the largest brewers in the Northeast and ranks within the top craft brewing companies in the United States.
