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.

    • Like I said Dave I think you are correct.  But this is a different election.  So your vote might matter.  I also wonder who the Liberal Tribune is actually calling if that is the one you want to hang your hat on.
    • Sorry but if Hillary wins I will not get what I deserve.  Everyone who voted for her or anyone besides Trump gets what they deserve.
    • I could care less if Johnson changes his mind.  I think you're  trolling in the wrong lake if you've ever seen me post about any candidate changing their mind.
    • How  big is the lake and what kind of weeds are most prevalent? 
    • I think we can thank our coach, the D will not lay down to anybody. We have made to MVP quarterbacks look like T-Jack lol. What a fun team to watch, is it sustainable? Only time will tell but I tell you what, nobody wants to play our D in the post season. That's what I'm excited about.  If Trent Dilfer can do it, we can do it. 
    • After that performance? Even the extremely biased Brietbart poll shows Trump losing that debate: Who won the debate polls: CNN/ORC - 62/27 = Clinton +35 PPP - 50/41 = Clinton +9 NBC/SM - 52/21 = Clinton +31 Gravis/Brietbart - 48/43 Clinton = +5 Reuters - 56/26 = Clinton +30
    • Nice design, cant wait to see it completed...    
    • So, for Y'all that are blowing RNT and Zink calls, how do you decide what to get? I'm in the mood to pick one really good goose call and one really good mallard call.  I looked at the $100 plus calls in the boxes at the C store but am leary of just pulling something off the hook based on a model name. Any suggestions for someone who mainly hunts in MN only for waterfowl? A good woodie call should be considered too. I'm still using some old Haydell calls, and Canada Hammer, Quack Head, etc..  Thanks
    • How have sturgeon been up there? Haven't been able to fish much (helping sister with hew wedding that was last weekend), but I do have Friday off and I'm thinking of heading up there to give it a go.
    • The final item on my list is to create a fold down bed. I have the aluminum bought and cut and have a friend using the tig to put it together. I plan on using webbing across the top and will buy a 4" mattress from clarkfield outdoors. Here are the designs, I will add pictures when I have it completed and mounted.
