    Molson/Coors buys an Irish craft brew.

    THE UK and Ireland wing of beer giant Molson Coors has bought a brewery built on the site of a 13th-Century monastery. The company acquired the Franciscan Well Craft beer brand and micro-brewery in Cork and will also be developing a new brewery in the city under plans to expand its capacity.

    It is the first development from the new Emerging Markets & Craft Beer unit, headed by Niall Phelan, set up to oversee its interest in craft beer in both countries. Mr Phelan said the craft beer market grew 100pc in Ireland and 13pc in the UK alone in 2012.
