Funny, I really expected to see at least a few beers on that list that I drink, but not a single one.

Other than laughing at their commercials during the Super Bo... er, the Big Game, I don't contribute to them at all...

It has been a good year / year and a half since I purchased anything from A-B...

After watching Beer Wars, I plan on buying even less...

Ha, after I just got done preaching to my friend's SWMBO about Blue Moon (Coors) and Michelob I am humbled by the news that Franziskaner and Spaten are owned by them...

I always assumed they were owned by a larger, more sinister company, but not InBev

As was said earlier in this thread, there's nothing you can do as an individual about this- except: Don't. Buy. Their. Beer.
That's what I do.....and I was tempted to try Bud American Ale. And I didn't. And I've been tempted to try all those little Michelin "Oh, lookie, we can make a craft brew, too!" items. And I haven't.
The business of the BMCs is essentially trying to muscle into all the nooks and crannies of an essentially inelastic market. Every time a Coors buys out a Blue Moon, we're headed back to the bad old days of "New improved beer, same as the old beer." We can't prevent an InBev takeover, but every six you buy helps, too.....just DON'T, that's all.

It's not great for the suppliers, but they sadly don't have a choice as A-B is probably their biggest client. That's what happens in oligarchies, the big companies can abuse of their power (think oil).

The worst is that Wal-Mart actually does something one level up: They don't buy any of the stock that's in their stores. It belongs to the supplier until Wal-Mart sells it, at which point Wal-Mart makes their profit and pays the supplier.
