A source close to Northern Brewer told me today that AB/InBev/SAB/Miller/Coors recently have quickly and very quietly acquired Northern Brewer and Midwest Supplies (merged in 2013) !

At first I didn't get why InBev would care about a little local company with only 3-4 retail outlets. My source informed me that Northern Brewer is the largest ONLINE retailer of home brew supplies and ingredients! They are the Amazon of home brew resources and InBev just bought home brewing

According to source, InBev has already moved in to the Northern Brewer headquarters.

Again, unconfirmed. Maybe just a sick nightmare. God I hope so! I would love to be dead wrong and have this post flamed and deleted a million times.

SAB Miller owns the Great Northern Brewing Co.
Maybe the source of confusion?

What did your source say that InBev/Miller/Coors/Bud/etc was going to do when they descended on Northern Brewer's headquarters?

Who is your "source close to Northern Brewer?" You mean they live nearby?

InBev wants to eliminate homebrewing so they can sell more Bud Light.

Troll?

Did a quick search, nothing about it. Sounds like a rumor.

Does this mean we can only brew Bud Light clones now?

I believe InBev has bought up all the northern brewer hops.

After the SAB/Miller-InBev merger, the rivers will turn to blood, there will be plagues of locusts, frogs and biting flies, boils, diseased livestock, and darkness. Better paint the doors with Budweiser.
