Question: Was budweiser sold!? to a foreign company!?
I heard bud was was sold to a belgum company is it true!?Www@FoodAQ@Com

yea, drink coors!Www@FoodAQ@Com

Yes, in 2004 the Belgian company Interbrew, and the Brazilian Company Ambrew, merged and Inbev, the largest brewer in the world was created!.
Then on July 13, 2008, Inbev agreed to buy Anheuser-Bush, The deal is still pending requiring approval of shareholders and regulatory agencies, but the total value of the deal would be an estimated $52 billion!. The name of the new company would then be Anheuser-Bush Inbev!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

well I get St Louis news so the latest scoop channel 4 sold us was due to the economy banks in Europe might not lend InBev the $$

Ergo, it's not a done deal!.

""InBev said there was no change to its target to complete the deal by the end of 2008, once it gets approval from regulators and Anheuser-Busch shareholders on November 12th!.""

and i found this online below, quoted above:::: (this is a huge deal where I live, south of St Louis)
*although it should be stated the news may be biased toward st louis, because as I said this is enormous to the STL economy!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

yes it sold but there is nothing about it thats not american, still made here and everything, the only thing is profits will go over seas now!. thats just how todays world works, money and profits out weigh tradition!. Www@FoodAQ@Com

Bud is now owned by InBev from Belgium
Coors/Molson was bought by Miller which is owned by South African Breweries
