Boycott Bud!

    Boycott Budweiser!

    Well, not really. I will drink a cold Bud in a pinch, especially from a longneck bottle, but it's not my beer of choice and I've had maybe 2 or 3 at the most in the past year, so the same to the Belgian guys won't change my life.

    Just hate to see another American company sold to foreign interests, which will lead to the loss of jobs here as they make the company "leaner and more efficient," their statements to the contrary notwithstanding.

    Be glad to boycott Bud.

    And any other beers that taste closer to water than say, beer.

    Unfortunately, I won't extend said boycott to Stella.

    I've already been boycotting Anheuser-Bush products for 35 years. It has more to do with the fact that the company believes rice is a good ingredient for beer. It does have a lighter, fresher taste, of course, but so does water.

    Wouldn't drink it with your taste buds, so nothing to boycott. When they announced the deal, though, didn't they say they are not moving operations from St. Louis, and all of the breweries are staying here? I thought they made the statement preemptively because of political pressure they were getting about potentially merging with a foreign corp.

    Did you ever think you'd see the day that Budweiser is an IMPORT!

    It's not. Neither are Miller products, despite being owned by a company based in London.

    And if you're concerned about InBev cutting jobs in the USA, then why are you not drinking the product? Wouldn't that result in even more jobs lost?

    Busch Stadium is going to keep its name, apparently.

    We had a thread several weeks ago talking about foreign interests buying US real estate, and it seems like there was mention that the Dutch were the foreign countrymen who owned the most of it. First, our land, now, our beer. What's next?

    About a year from now, our webmaster will be Pim Koymans, not Lucas Wiseman.

    And American said it wouldn't reduce service in St. Louis when it bought TWA.
