Anheuser-Busch (BUD): As InBev Closes In, Americans Boycott Budweiser

Corey Lorinsky | Jul 12, 08 1:16 PM

Jordan Moore took the news that his beloved Budweiser could soon fall into foreign hands very personally: He decided he would scrap his plan to get the logo of the King of Beers tattooed on his right rib cage.

"I'll tell you one thing," said the 21-year-old concrete worker during his lunch break at The Brick of St. Louis bar, in the shadow of this city's storied Anheuser-Busch Cos. brewery, "if Budweiser is made by a different country, I don't drink Budweiser anymore. I'll go back to Wild Turkey." (Wild Turkey, a Kentucky bourbon, is owned by French drinks giant Pernod Ricard SA...)

It's a sad day...Budweiser in foreign hands. At least there's still Leinenkugel.
