    Somehow, I don't see America as being part of the win-win description. This saddens me. I've toured the damn brewery and thought it was grand that this was still an American product. To hell with the St. Louis Cardinals and everything Busch is about.

    Title sucks, but this is being hashed out over on AG.

    Subjects with multiple threads right now:

    Politics (of course)
    Brett Favruhruh
    The sale of an American company to a European one....whose main produce coincidentally, I'm sure, is beer...

    If it makes Bud taste like a Belgian beer, I'm all for it.

    I have a case of the Michelob craft brews that I'm working through. It will be my last purchase of A-B product.

    Why do you think the new Bud slogan is "America's lager"

    Boston Beer Co.: Now America's largest domestically-owned beermaker.

    Which is fine, because their beers are better than those produced by the "domestic" competition.

    Ever wonder how it is that countries whose asses got completely kicked in the Second World War still managed to end up running the world anyway?

    I mean, it was bad enough that we rebuilt Japan and Germany and have turned a blind eye to China's ongoing transformation from economic backwater to the next evil empire. Now Belgian corporations are picking off venerable American institutions like they were knick-knacks at a flea market?

    What's next, IBM being taken over by somebody in Norway? Jesus Christ, whatever happened to American pride and ingenuity and fortitude? Or has all of that also been sold to the highest bidder?? :mad: :'(
