Almaza shared some pretty exciting news today, as Philippe Jabre, the third generation Jabre family member, has now the majority stake in the company after having acquired it from Heineken who “will remain a minority shareholder and will continue to provide access to international brands and technical expertise”.

Almaza was founded in 1933 by the Jabre family in 1933 and has been for as long as I can remember Lebanon’s favorite beer.

The decision by Philippe Jabre to acquire majority control will help secure a durable and long-term future for the company and its employees. Almaza will continue to brew great beers to the highest quality at the historical Dora brewery and production site, and will retain exclusive sales and distribution rights on the Heineken brands.
