Beer News: InBev Swindles Asahi

January 23, 2009

Reuters announced today that Japan’s Asahi Breweries LTd., furthering the trend of recent intergalactic beer company consolidation, is going to buy nearly twenty percent of China’s Tsingtao Brewery from InBev for 667 million, that is until Reuter’s realized that they made a big mistake and prompty changed the “m” in million to a “b”. Lord knows, Asahi and Tsingtao taste the same anyhow, so I’m not sure any beer drinker cares. I was always get a Sapporo when eating sushi anyway and pretty much stay away from Chinese Beer entirely, that is unless my local asian fish-market superstore is chucking twelve-pack of cans for $4.99.
