Bud sales and Bud light sales are all down in our 7 bars in Key West. We even quit carrying Beck's and Stella Artois. AnBev/Inbev are destroying one brand after another in Europe.

Read this article to see what cost cutting on ingredients and brewing foreign beers in the USA have done to inconic brands over here. If these clowns get a hold of total ownership of Corona, you can kiss that one goodbye too.

I would never drink Bud or Bud Light, nor Corona, and have a hard time thinking what there is to destroy in such insipid beers. But if AmBev can profitably sell $40 bn worth of beer every year, up from $24 bn a few years ago, then someone must like it, so who cares what you and I think of the taste?
