Wait, isn't AB owned by some French company now?
What's with all this America crap on my Budweiser products?
Is it some cynical marketing scheme?
Does France have a giant boner for America?
What are those frogs up to...
According to wikipedia, it's still based out of St. Louis.
Where did you hear that?......I have heard nothing of the sort.
Also I don't think AB makes 211 or 4loko
I only skimmed that but I'll read more later....As it looks they don't make Budweiser and shit.....All of that is still domestic.....But I could be wrong.
anheuser-busch was acquired by belgian beerco inbev (think beck's, stella, hoegaarden) in 2008. inbev is actually a merger of belgian company interbrew and brazilian beerco ambev, which happened in '04. a-b still headquarters in stl, but is technically part of the international corp that has something like 25% of the global beer market. america, f**k yeah.
then there's this ongoing thing where ab-inbev is working to acquire sabmiller, which is the 2nd largest beer conglomerate in the world next to ab-inbev. if that happens (which it probably will later this year), the new company is expected to hold 30% of global market share. combine that with the exclusionary practices being conducted by a-b in their attempt to drive out market competition in any form, and you can actually feel the chokehold tightening around the micro / craft beer markets. "america"? f**k you.
You're a well informed bartender huh.
