Full story: Myrtle Beach Online

So, where were the horses and the Bud booths at the California State Fair? Do Belgians even understand that symbolism and how close those horses are to the American heart? No Bud until I see our horses showing up at events.....

I also work for the company and there is talk that In-Bev may pull out of the deal with Busch. Is this possible. The stock would crash and 401k will drop to nothing.

Anything is possible, but do not think it is plausible. If the shareholders really do not like this deal, than all they need to do is vote NO with their votes. I know alot of people within the company either with Anheuser, Amusement Parks, Canneries or just investors and they are voting NO for the invetors.
Alot of people take pride in the fact they work for Anhueser, but are disgusted with August IV who basically sold out the company and Stokes who is a greedy bastard and who is reigning in money through personal sales.
In a perfect world, the sale would be voted down by the stockholders which would shelve the deal or dissolve it. Bring up a new vote and get rid of August IV and bring back AugustIII to re-establish the pride of this company and get rid of some of the company officers who do not believe in this American Icon

I feel for ya... If Obama wins, he'll tax Budweiser into the poorhouse, and you'll be looking for another job.

Coors Light, Heineken, Samual Adams, P.B.Ribbon and Blue Moon are probably my favorite. Budweiser isn't bad though. Good American Brewed Beer. A MAN'S BEER!
