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.

    • I have seen 3 different flocks of Swan's in the past week. I have also seen small flocks of little birds that look to be migrating.
    • MCI:   Sorry, but Waylon's only interests in life are ducks and my dirty laundry. I didn't start really getting into the shed hunting until recently so I didn't train him for it. I will probably do so with my next pup. He just tags along.   With the increase in popularity of shed hunting there is plenty of information out there. I know a few shed dogs and I know it's not as easy to get them excited about old bone then about a nice stinky duck, but definitely possible. The guys I know also compete in local shed competitions (staged courses) , so if you look into that type of thing there should be a group of guys with a lot of knowledge.

This is a government policy, so this comes into play faster then a bullet..   " ...many of the problems stemmed not necessarily from a disagreement over the facts but a disagreement over which facts matter when it comes to interpreting the effects of decriminalisation."   Just like you Dave, only using the facts that fit your narrative.     HIV - down yes.   Due to eradicating drug dens, availability of needles, health awareness.   Deaths, over dose - yes (arguably)   Due to access of real drugs, not designer, dangerous synthetic weeds.     Homicides - yes/no Also there is no data collected for drug related homicides.       Drug users are not deemed criminals but as sick. Which immediately becomes a public expense.       -"" Goulão himself is skeptical of some aspects of marijuana reform in places like the United States, which he says can conflate medical use with recreational markets. "Sometimes I feel the promoters of this discussion are mixing things together using a lack of intellectual seriousness (Big Dave & Purple)," he said.""     This is just in 5 minutes, I'll go on doing this all day long. Leave you laying on the floor.   By the way, you just cut and paste articles. In no way way have you presented an intelligent reason why decriminalization would curb drug use.   Keep pasting,
