Hardly. Brew pubs are pooping up all over town.
They’d have to start making beer first.
As long as there is another beer, I will not drink Bud.
So you're saying that some nerds at DOJ now think they are Tom Cruise in Minority Report and they are going to save us from future thought crimes?
DOJ is to “justice” as Yugo is to cars.
Holder = the Obamadork = Slime.
We have five micro breweries in town, micros will never end.
I drink Yuengling
America’s oldest brewery
Made by Americans for Americans.......
Maybe DOJ is worried they’ll corner the market on American-style pseudo-Pilsner.
“At the same time, sales of Budweiser in the United States have dropped for 25 consecutive years.”
Little wonder, Buttwasher is a nasty beer. Too sweet, watered down, and overpriced.
Beer monopoly? I thought Budweiser was what comes out of the Clydesdales after they drink water.
.... Heck .... I was rather disillusioned to find out the article wasn't about a new drinking game!!!
.... But seriously folks ... I hope we all realize that the era of cheap booze here in America will soon become a thing of the past!!! The price of Liquor and Alcohol is about to double to the prices that are currently paid by our neighbors to the north. There are reasons that the cost of booze is so expensive in Canada ... and this country just adopted those same reasons as new entitlements to go along with it's new system of government.
I read an article last Fall in Bloomberg magazine discussing this topic. They highlighted that InBev’s CEO is all about margins and treats beer as a commodity. Their approach includes cheapening the product and is moving production closer to the client base. For example, those of you who drink Bass, take a look at where it’s made — most likely New York. And they are coming after the regionals too. Goose Island was bought and a lot of the production moved from Chicago. While I don’t like Budweiser, they mentioned that the old A-B used really good hops sourced from the same small farmers for decades. InBev has cut them off.
For those who have never tasted it I would recommend Sierra. I have never liked beer until I tasted it. It just may be one of the finest beers in the world. I hope their success does not spoil the beer
Check how much they give annually in terms of campaign contributions to the ‘rats. My guess would be this is like when they went after Microsoft. “Nice business you’s got here, wouldn’t want anything to happen to it now, would you?”
With hundreds (maybe thousands) of micro-brews in this country, I don’t think we’ve got a problem with competition.
Nope... some people are brewing beer at home, and brewpubs are popping up...
They’d better not buy out Shiner Bock....that’s an act of war.
The game theory basis of DOJ suit is novel to say the least, but if the DOJ is suddenly so concerned about near monopolies in the beer industry why didn't they act earlier? For example why wasn't the joint venture between Molson-Coors and SA Miller in 2009 a concern?
