Dude, I don't have time to be your babysitter and look things up on Google for you. If you want to live in ignorance thinking Goose Island was the first "big" brewery that AB and/or InBev picked up (hint: start with Rolling Rock, Stella Artois) or that Dogfish Head was the only brewery that AB and/or InBev has brought to court (hint: start with the multiple interactions between AB nBev and Budvar), that's awesome for you. I'm going to go wash some yeast now.

Haha I already mentioned these... And I give it to you I wasn't thinking about rolling rock but Stella huh? That is not true Stella bought Budweiser. InBev bought AB. So obviously those interactions between the two were not really bud pushing around a big brewery! But apparently I'm ignorant my bad ill do research next time I post something I know an incredible amount about

At some point you have to account for WHERE THE BEER COMES FROM
lol You're comparing InBev using it's buying power to take over smaller craft beweries and their market share, to Hitler burning Jewish babies.

LOL HAHAHAHA

No, more their willingness to wrongfully sue to try and run a brewery under.

My burning babies was in response to "I don't care where my beer comes from if it tastes good"

Your defense of Inbev when they do Intentionally decieve and actively try to hurt other breweries is a little disconcerting.

Shall I burn some babies for you?

You might be on to something here. What I have read about the history of AB indicates that they did work to make a quality product but that they also used (possibly use) legal, illegal, and questionable methods to sell their product.

If InBev cheapens the product to the point that their customers notice (like Beck's), they could very well start losing market share. Cheaper product and lower market share could mean higher profits for InBev.

You're right. Good point. I'm not drinking anything made by Monsanto.

Ab inbev uses the same tactics of manipulating the law as monsanto.As far as not drinking anything made with monsanto products I say good for you, not all of us can avoid products like milk and soda.

Angry much? I'm not going to tell you I am aware of Bud's business practices, because I'd be lying (though, I'd appreciate it if you post a link to facts before your resort to quotes from Mussolini). But this country has a free press that work like vultures to bring to light any wrongdoing. If politicians are in the pockets of business, and of course many are, it is brought to light quickly.

Bud makes mostly crappy beer. At least I don't like it. Maybe they are trying to make a better beer. That's what this topic is about. If you want to get all pissy about something you saw in Beer Wars, start your own topic.
