The deal's done. InBev now owns Anheuser-Busch, and the new company is called Anheuser-Busch InBev. Not a lot to say that hasn't already been said... So long Sesame Place, no more laughs about Big Bird and Bud Light. Wonder if Busch Gardens in Williamsburg will go as well? (Sorry, got some questions about this: Sesame Place won't be closing, but ABIB will almost certainly be selling it off for cash; they'll probably sell off every non-brewing asset they can.)
More to the point...whither Michelob, Budweiser American Ale, and all the craft brewer investments -- Craft Brewers Alliance, Coastal, etc.? This company bit off a lot for this merger: they're gonna have to come up with cash -- from selling assets -- and savings -- from cutting costs. This meeting of corporate cultures is going to be the Clash of the Titans. Buckle up, kids.
