Inbev Buying Anheuser Busch for $52B

art.busch.file.ap.jpgYep, you read that right - American beer juggernaut Anheuser Busch is being bought out by a foreign company. We should've read the writing on the wall back when AB started mucking around making horrible-tasting hard liquor, but we really didn't think about it much. We have two questions - A) will they still be able to go with red state marketing campaigns if they're not owned by 'Mericans, and B) will they be able to create a Budweiser beer that doesn't taste vaguely of Clydesdale piss?

InBev is the world's second largest beer maker, with brands that include Stella Artois and Becks.

The deal must be approved by shareholders and European and U.S. antitrust regulators. The merger will produce the fourth-largest consumer product company worldwide.
