AB InBev Approaches SABMiller in Record Industry Combination

Oh, joy, now there will be even more homogeneity on tap!

As much as I enjoy defaulting to some of Miller’s brands (when no local choice exists), I think the muscle of AB InBev’s distribution empire will further harm small brewers by either pricing them off the available taps or forcing them to buy in. Why stock Golden Road or Summer Hummer when you can buy Blue Moon for half as much?

Anheuser-Busch InBev NV said it intends to make an offer to acquire SABMiller Plc in a deal that would unite the world’s two biggest beermakers and control about half the industry’s profit.
