CNN: The U.S. government moved to block the proposed merger of beer giant Anheuser-Busch InBev with Mexico’s Grupo Modelo on Thursday, with a Justice Department official calling it “a bad deal for American consumers.”
ABI already owns about half of Modelo, which brews the popular Corona brand. The Justice Department’s antitrust lawsuit accuses ABI of trying to eliminate “a significant competitive threat” from Modelo’s Corona brands by purchasing the rest of the Mexican company for a proposed $20.1 billion.
There are only two kinds of people who drink Bud. People with not enough money to buy a better beer, or people with not enough taste to buy a better beer. Concurrently, there are only two types of people that drink Coronas. People who are Mexican, or American tourists on vacation, and those two categories can be merged into one category as simply people in a hot environment. Corona tastes like piss. Bud tastes like bitter water. Bud Lite is even more egregious.
I remember hearing a few months ago that Budweiser was being purchased by the Corona, which basically pissed off anyone who is an American patriot, even if they hate Bud like me. I guess it was a just of nonsense, turns out it was just Budweiser tryin to make a buck. Well, whatever. I’m keeping the title of this blog the same. Remember the Alamo!
