So much for Domestic beer

Well, it looks like non of the top 3 brewing companies in the US will be US companies come tomorrow.  InBev will takeover AB. 

AB - Bud, Michelob etc - will now be owned by InBev a Belgian - Brazilian co.

Miller -  is owned by SAB Miller a UK - South African co

Coors - is part of Molson Coors a US - Canadian co, but marketed in the US by the new (as of July 1st)Miller Coors joint venture.

So no - we really don't have a major US beer wholly owned by a US company anymore. 


Yes, I do realize there is a lot that has to happen before the AB InBev deal actually goes through.
