I saw today InBev finished up the deal and will be buying AB. Their went another company overseas. Hated to see it since AB has been a local icon for many years.

First, a story for emptybrass: back many moons ago when I was working in St Louis right out of college, my colleagues used to go across the street to a bar called Harry's, which was an upscale place and always full of hot women. It was also a favorite watering hole of Auggie Busch IV, who is now the CEO, but back then was a thirty-something party-boy. So one day after coming in on his custom Harley with some arm candy holding on to his back and acting like he owned the place, we sent him and his date a round of Miller Lites. You should have seen him go into a rage trying to figure out who did it. Still cracks me up to this day!
As for AB being bought by InBev, InBev distributes like 200+ beers, including Stella and Beck's. It is based in Belgium, but is really owned by the Brazilians. Did you guys know that 80% of the beer market is no longer made in America? Bud -- Belgian/Brazilian. Miller? Nope -- South African. Coors? Umm....Canadian now. Remember the days when the "imports" section of beers was the smaller one of the two?????
