    You ship hundreds of billions of dollars overseas more than you take in. What do you expect foreigners to do with them - keep them for souveniers, or spend them buying assets?

    Do you really not know who owns Leinenkugels? You honestly cant be so lame as to not know who owns them but instead is just joking about this.

    South African Breweries - Miller which is the world’s second largest brewer with brewing interests and distribution agreements in over 60 countries across six continents.

    So you actually think your drinking and supporting an American companies product?

    If you didn't see this coming you were busy with less important things.

    "Almighty dollar" is a total misnomer. Our dollar is pathetically weak as the result of huge and persistent trade imbalance previously referenced by our friend Pocatello.

    Because virtually every other world currency is strong relative to the U.S. dollar, U.S. assets are priced at a substantial discount relative to assets in other countries. Foreign investors (including InBev SA) literally get more bang for the buck buying U.S. assets.

    While not a huge beer fan, I have enjoyed a Bud or three over the years. I was always a bit skittish of those funny Anheuser and Busch names even though they founded the brewery in St. Louis.


    If the Jack Daniels Distillery ever sells out, you'll probably find me in a fetal position somewhere sobbing into my Tennessee Squire credential.


    Should my beloved motorcycle company from Milwaukee sell out to foreign bastards--I'm going Rambo with my hopefully still American-owned Remington!

    gdbabin,

    I hate to break the news to ya, but Honda Motorcycles have more domestic contint than a new HD does. And before you start blabbering on about where the money goes, the suppliers make just as much as the finish user.

    Go buy one of those chrome accessories for an HD and see what is says on the box. Made in China! Walk into your local Yamaha shop and buy accesories for a Star cruiser. Made in the USA! Enough said.

    Hey, if a foreign company wants to give $52 BILLION back to a lot of American stockholders of a brewery, so what? You worried they will eat the horses and shut the place down?

    Ok that's it---ec90t and EE have convinced me that my only honorable choice now is hara-kiri (notice the foreign flair).

    I've been supporting Canadians and Chinese bastards.... OMF'ingG!!!

    My best bet on doing myself in is probably an overdose of JD--at least my two most observant friends could not find a link to foreign subterfuge with that brand.

    PS: Mr. Made in America Yamahahoppy man, I'm glad you like your bike, be safe.

    The Busch family (or their stockholders) never put any shoes on my kid's feet.


    I paid them my money, and got a beer in return. If I thought they owed me anything beyond that, I'd be dreaming.



    So whether those profits flow into some rich fatass American's pocket, or some skinny, rich, multilingual, bad-teeth European's pocket, really isn't going to make a dime of difference in my life. Or yours.



    Americans are going to realize, sooner or later, that capitalism has no borders. It is not our exclusive ideological possession. There's commie socialists right here in America...and there's fire-breathing let-them-eat-cake capitalists in countries that otherwise resemble socialist hell holes.


    This is going to happen, again, and again, and again.


    And I assure you...those bad-teeth skinny Europeans who now own Budweiser/John Deere/Your Favorite Whiskey/fill in the blank, don't give one iota less of a tinker's damn about you and your family, than the old American owners did.


    The American owners of Busch, Ford, GM, or whoever else you care to talk about, don't give a rip about your family. And, you, as an American investor, can purchase InBev stock to put in your retirement portfolio, just as easily as you could have purchased Busch stock.


    "Keeping the profits here" is a myth. And foreigners cannot buy something unless it's for sale.

    Can't help you with the Remington Rambo or ending it all things. All I have are Rio bullets as I can no longer afford STS, AA, or Gold Medals whether paper or plastic.

    You sold out our country, by voting in the same people for the last 30 years. I think we are like the passengers on the Titanic. W e have an inept Capt. & a crew of idiots steering our ship of state where ever they want to go & damn the passengers. I really believe we are headed for an financial event that will rival the great depression. This one may be capped with a total upheaval of our society. If we don't take charge & dump every icumbent, from top to bottom we have no one to blame but ourselves.

    Dam, hate to hear that Budweiser is being sold to a foreign company.

    I wonder if this will mess things up for me? Tuesday night is domestic pint night at the local sports bar, all domestic draft beer is $2 a pint. I always order a Bud and dam they are now foreign owned. What the hell am I going to do now?

    I have heard that the family members of Mr. Busch only own 3 percent of the total company stock. Surprised with that little of the stock they still maintained control of the company this long.

    As a former St. Louis resident and still a frequent visitor 4 or 5 times a month I have always admired their generousity in the region( probally everywhere in their marketing area). Next weekend is my churches annual picnic and they have always supplied us with a beer wagon and 10 kegs of free beer. Hate to see this donation end.
