Anheuser-Busch Agrees to Be Sold for $52 Billion

The NY Times is reporting this morning that Anheuser-Busch has agreed to sell itself to the Belgian brewer InBev for about $52 billion, the two companies confirmed Monday in a joint release, putting control of the nation’s largest beer maker and a fixture of American culture into a European rival’s hands.

To me this is sad news, as I have mentioned before I a former employee of AB and feel that it is a same that an American icon such as Budweiser will no longer be an American company. We will have to wait and see if they will even be able to keep their name or just be absorbed into the InBev brand.

Survival of the Sudsiest

I don’t know how many of you read George Will’s column on a weekly basis, but I am sure that most of you know of his work.

Usually Mr. Will writes and opines  his conservative views about what is happening in and around Washington and Middle-America. Every now and again he writes about other topics that are near and dear to his heart like baseball, he is an avid Chicago Cubs fan. This week he devoted one of his columns to the subject of beer.
In light of InBev attempt to take over Anheuser-Busch, George wrote about how beer drinking has aided in human evolution and the concept of Survival of the Fittest(Sudsiest).
As usual, his writing is a little cerebral but it is humorous and worth the read.
