Beer brewer Anheuser-Busch InBev (AB InBev) announced Thursday that it had approached the board of beer and soft drink maker SABMiller about a potential merger.
Anheuser-Busch brought home 15 medals from the North American Beer Awards last weekend, with its newest brand — Stella Artois Cidre — earning a gold medal in the cider category.
Stella Artois is introducing Stella Artois Cidre to the surging U.S. cider market, Anheuser-Busch announced today.
Brewers finally have something to celebrate. After three years of flat performance, the category is up 5.3% due to a flurry of new introductions.
Craft beers, particularly India Pale Ales and seasonals, continue to drive category growth in the beer category.
