Thanks!

I noticed that under M/C it shows Stones as owned by them. That's not Stone's that makes Arrogant Bastard, Sublimely Selfrighteous, etc. is it? I thought they were independent.

No. That would be Stone. Singular. No "s" on the end.

I can't claim to know much, but from what I saw in the movie, AB was doing things that aren't right. MillerCoors wasn't shown in the same light. I haven't heard of them using their brewery to make a fictitious brewery's beer so as to get those who wouldn't buy their products could be duped.

They also showed the difference between the way the companies treated their employees.
I won't disagree that Beer Wars focused more on Inbev/AB but that doesn't mean that SABMiller is any more ethical.

Certainly not. But because I am not aware of nefarious business practices I won't dislike them or bar the beers that I do enjoy that they sell.

Does anyone know of bad business practices that MillerCoors has?

They seem to care about their employees.

You have to pick your battles, the fact that Miller-coors is still an american owned company is fine by me.

Are they? I thought I read somewhere that they are Canadian owned.
I like a couple of their products, and at times, it's the only decent choice when out to eat at a place that doesn't have much variety. And so I choose a Blue Moon typically.

Their. Full name is SAB Miller. As in South African Brewers. They are most definitely not American owned.

After a quick google search I found that miller coors is a joint venture between north American, Canadian, and U.K. based companies.In short, globalized Just like everything else.

Spoken like a true liberal:
Walmart bad. Target good.
Budweiser bad. Miller good.
McDonalds bad. Chick-Fi-Lay eeerrrrr ummm, In and Out/Wataburger/Sonic good.
Subway bad. Panera Bread good.
Taco Bell bad. Chipotle good.
KFC bad. Any other Fried Chicken place OKAY.

Do what ever "they" tell you to do sheeple.
