I got my proxy vote ballot on the merger in the e-mail box today.
I had to vote no. Frankly I don't really want to sell my stock to a Belgian company and have an American business completely removed from the stock market.

So how did or would the rest of you vote.

I thought this already was a done deal. I don't really care to be honest. I dont have AB stock and I don't buy their beer.

It is. InBev has more votes than anyone else combined and I know how they're voting.

If I'm voting as a beer lover, I'm for it (increase the likelihood of good imports becoming mainstream) but if I'm voting as an american citizen, I'm against it. I hate to see our largest corporations move overseas.

I really couldn't care less, i only voted yes in this pole to give some grief to the Bud drinkers out there

My Belgian brother-in-law would tell you that Stella is the piss of Belgian beers, he feels about it much the way I feel about Bud. That being said, i do find it encouraging that Bud is now selling an ale, haven't had it yet, but it does show you how the beer market has changed in the last 10-20 years....

My reasons are not so much about my like or dislike for Budweiser beer, I just hate to see a great American company get sold over seas for no apparent good reason. I never heard any reports of AB looking at bankruptcy or anything. I just can't seem to understand why this is in the best interest of the company. All about the money I guess.

A little birdy told me that InBev is probably going to drop the Sam Adams product line from their distribution facilities. Guess they are not going to sell the competitions beer Too bad, its the best one they distribute!

If that's true then sounds like another good reason that I voted NO. I realize that my no vote is probably meaningless, but oh well.
