Anheuser-Busch InBev and SABMiller’s merger cleared by U.S. Department of Justice

BeerNews.org - Wed, 07/20/2016 - 12:36

[Press Release:] Transaction on Track to Close in Second Half of 2016

Anheuser-Busch InBev NV/SA (“AB InBev”) (Euronext: ABI) (NYSE: BUD) (MEXBOL: ABI) (JSE: ANB) announced today that it has entered into a consent decree with the United States Department of Justice (see https://www.justice.gov/atr/antitrust-case-filings-alpha), which clears the way for U.S. approval of its recommended combination with SABMiller plc (“SABMiller”). The company reaffirmed its expectation to close the global transaction in the second half of 2016.

“With today’s agreement, we have taken a significant step forward on the transaction, which will create the world’s first truly global brewer,” said Carlos Brito, CEO of AB InBev. “Our combination with SABMiller will bring more choice to more beer drinkers—and extend the global reach of our iconic American brands, such as Budweiser—in markets outside of the U.S.”

As part of the consent decree and consistent with AB InBev’s approach to proactively address potential regulatory concerns, the company agreed to divest SABMiller’s U.S. interest in MillerCoors to Molson Coors. This divestiture, which was previously announced between AB InBev and Molson Coors, is conditioned on the successful closing of the combination of AB InBev with SABMiller.

The terms of the consent decree formalize prior commitments the company’s U.S. entity Anheuser-Busch (“AB”) has made including:

– AB will not acquire a distributor if doing so would result in more than 10% of its annual volume being distributed through wholly-owned distributorships in the U.S.

– AB will not terminate any wholesalers as a result of the combination with SABMiller.

In addition, certain aspects of the company’s U.S. sales programs and policies will be reviewed and modified to conform to the consent decree.

Carlos Brito added: “We will continue to invest heavily in the U.S., including our efforts to build our entire portfolio of brands, support and incentivize our wholesalers, and compete effectively in a dynamic and fast-changing market. While we will make some adjustments to certain aspects of our U.S. sales programs and policies, our fundamental approach and commitment to this market will not change. We will continue to compete and win in the U.S. marketplace going forward.”

AB InBev has now obtained approval in 21 jurisdictions. Clearance decisions, with or without conditions, have now been obtained: in North America (US and Canada); Asia-Pacific (Australia, India, and South Korea); in Africa (Botswana, Kenya, Namibia, Swaziland, Zambia, Zimbabwe, and South Africa); in Europe (the EU, Albania, Moldova, Turkey and Ukraine); and in Latin America (Chile, Colombia, Mexico and Uruguay). Approval in Ecuador is subject to certain conditions.

In the remaining jurisdictions where regulatory clearance is still pending, AB InBev will continue to engage proactively with the relevant authorities to address their concerns in order to obtain the necessary clearances as quickly as possible.

Legal Remedy Brewing Co. now featured in Beer of the Month T-Shirt Club for July

BeerPulse - Wed, 07/20/2016 - 12:25

[Sponsored Post:]

Final orders are due at 11:00 pm on Thursday, July 21st. Shirts will be mailed Saturday, July 30th.

Are you looking for a fun gift for that special beer lover in your life?  Beer T-Shirt Club is a great option for birthdays, anniversaries, it even makes a thoughtful wedding party gift for bridesmaids and groomsmen. Each month, members receive a high-quality, uniquely designed T-shirt promoting a different craft brewery. Offering one-month, six-month, or twelve-month memberships, the Beer T-Shirt of the Month Club is the only way beer enthusiasts can enjoy these fun T-shirts.

So this one time a lawyer, a landscape architect, two bankers and a computer guy decided to brew some beer.  It sounds like the beginning of a bad joke, but this is in fact how Beer T-Shirt Club’s July partner, Legal Remedy Brewing, started with home brewing back in 2009.  After entering a ton of home brew competitions they decided to “go legal” and turn their beer club into a reality.  In 2015 they found a vacant car dealership in Rock Hill, SC and converted it into a craft brewery and brewpub.  The building has 11,000 square feet of space that allows for a 17-barrel brewing system that can produce over 10,000 barrels of beer per year.  This is the most American of stories – people with a common goal trying to turn a dream into a reality.

 

Legal Remedy Brewing’s amazing brewing space sets them up to brew a lot of different types of beer.  Their year-round line up, that they refer to as The Usual Suspects, include Alibi Pale Ale, Motion to Strike Milk Stout, Pro Bono Porter, Sequestered Saison, and even a non-alcoholic root beer called Recess Break.  Legal Remedy is currently tapping 13 seasonal beers.  You can find Alternate Apple Watermelon Wheat, Jury Panel Jalapeño Pineapple Ale, and Stipulation Strawberry Vanilla IPA.  No matter what seasonal or year-round beer you choose, it is sure to be cold, refreshing, and help get you through the summer heat.  Check out their full and current tap list here: http://legalremedybrewing.com/wp-content/uploads/beer-list.pdf.  And we cannot forget to mention their food menu here: http://legalremedybrewing.com/wp-content/uploads/food-menu.pdf.

 

Seven years later, this group of original home brewers have a beautiful taproom and patio. Now they are crafting delicious beers that they enjoy drinking and sharing with those in their community.  They will be celebrating their anniversary on Saturday, August 27th, so be sure to mark your calendars for that fun event!
