European beverage giant InBev made a $46 billion bid for Anheuser-Bush.

InBev owns beer brands like Becks and Stellar Artois. Anheuser said that it will review the bid.

Anheuser-Bush's beer brands account for 50% of the beer sales in the United States.
Anheuser also owns 50% of the Mexican brewer Modelo and about a 1/3rd of China's Tsingtao. As you see the beer business is highly international - at least for big brand beers. I am very glad that Germany has still a very vibrant small brewer landscape. "Hand-made" beer just tastes a lot better and the variety of the different beers is half the fun.
