Budweiser going Belgium?

12 posts in this topic

Another American company may be bought by another country because of the weak dollar. That is Anheuser- Busch being chased by a Belgium company (!Bev).

Are they going the same rout Miller has, being bought by SAB (South African brewery).Boy, Were not going to have anything left that's an American Icon.

One thing though Belgium makes a mighty fine beer. I would love the chance at trying some of that beer made by Monks

Hey curt, how's it goin? Couldn't believe that Bud might get bought out. Guess Sam Adams is our flagship now. Which is just as well since they make pretty darn good beer.

I'm busy this weekend but would you be interested in getting out on the croix next week sometime?

Well, that's the way of the world. Maybe the new owners will make a better product that the current crop of crappy American executives.

Welcome to the "Global Economy" it isn't just about a weak dollar it is about $$$ changing hands and profits to be made. Somebody wants to buy and someone wants to get paid. Look how much money American companies are investing in foreign markets. Not sure where this will take us but I don't feel real good about it.

Its the way of the world. US companies own and have significant holdings all over the world, so its only a matter of time until it happens here. Once the dollar goes back up (if the fed gets rates back up), then we'll start acquiring foreign entities again. The only thing I am against is if they try to acquire infrastructure, that needs to remain in american hands for security reasons.

Yes they do make some darn good beer! Anybody that hasn't had some, should give it a try. Its good times sampling of the great beer that is out there nowadays.

Sure thing Ben That would be great. Hopefully the no-wake wont be in effect. With this rain that spot by the bridg should be hot.

I'll try to keep the outing below 12 hours this time. Man, when I finaly hit the bed I swear I was still rolling around on those waves. I've only seen that river that bad 2 or 3 times before.

Give you a call early next weak or you can give me a call to.

This would be a good opportunity for Bud drinkers to step out of the backwoods and find some real beer. Watered down pilsner? Why? Life's too short to be drinking that swill.

As goblue mentioned Sam Adams would be a decent start. Then as you become more educated on the subject you may find yourself appreciating the many different bocks, stouts, porters, and ales that are available while supporting American microbreweries. It's a win-win situation. Cheers!

Belgiums are prettier anyways. And they work harder.....

I do drink a lot of Michelob and a fair amount of busch (no respect for busch so no caps.) so I guess this will effect me a little. Not sure how but whatever.

I do second the Sammy's thing though. If they sell out, I will have to curl up in a little ball and cry.

If you like the beer there is no reason not to keep drinking it. It will still be made in the U.S and you will still be supporting the workers who make it.

It's just sad to see another American Icon bite the dust.

    • Hey you guys-you forget I'm an old Alaskan.  I know all I need to know about the dingbat and her famous family. If you are actually accepting her blather as useful intelligence and knowledge than you are as squirrely as she is. Let her just fade away for Pete's sake.
    • Hi Dave.  We have talked about this briefly a year or two ago.  Due to the paranoia factor on this site I and most others aren't here as much.  I do miss guys like you Dave.  I remember the pic of your camper at Itasca so we took a drive through this summer.   I wondered where your spot was.  Man I hope you come out of this alright Dave.  My Uncle had diabetes bad and finally lost the battle.  The docs said change your diet or take the shot.  He said give me the shots.  Well that lasted for many years and his body finally gave in..  He should have changed his diet too.  I took him to a couple of bear baits he wanted to see and he told me his feet were finally giving in.  AND he was a tough guy.   Anyway Dave we all love you and I hope you can persevere....   I am thinking good things for you so you think positive too.....    Barry.    Hope this isn't deleted for one of their paranoid reasons...  If it is deleted I will never be back as many others.   So sad.....
    • It is interesting how people got out so early.  I have done it too.  3 or 4 hits with the spud and it is alright.......  NO it isn't ....  It is manly to talk about getting on the ice first.  Well now that I am older I realize it is stupid talk not manly.  The fishing sales world is just as guilty.  They talk about the first ice fishing being so good.  They actually are hugely responsible for getting stupid people out on thin ice.  The lets make a buck is more important than anything.  ANYTHING!!! 
    • Great pictures.   I'm used to seeing eagles, but those pictures are outstanding. 
    • Didn't I just do that?   Can't you read? 
    • Only if they have a drinking problem and maybe me implants.  That's all the Canadian folks care about....
    • That sounds like a great idea. 
    • I know perfectly well how phishing works.   Typical Liberal thinks anyone who is not toeing the party line is ignorant.    It isn't that hard to phish a fool like podesta.
    • I feel like we were just water skiing not to long ago!  Definitely caught a sun burn for deer season ha.  I'll be doing my fishing at the grocery store for a bit yet.
    • Remember, your fishing for pickerel!!  No such thing as walleye where your fishing
