Anheuser-Busch InBev SA/NV (abbreviated as AB-InBev) is a multinational drink and brewing company based in Leuven, Belgium. Additional main offices are located in São Paulo, New York City, London, St. Louis, Mexico City, Bremen, Johannesburg, and others.
The company was enlarged in October 2016 when AB-InBev purchased SABMiller and concluded a merger of the two entities. It was the world’s largest brewer even before the acquisition of SABMiller and is considered one of the largest fast-moving consumer goods companies in the world.
The annual sales for the company in 2018 were U.S. $54.6 billion; prior to the merger, AB-InBev had realized US $45.5 billion in revenue in 2016. The company was expected to have a 28 percent market share of global volume beer sales in 2017, according to Euromonitor International.
AB InBev was formed through InBev (itself a merger between Interbrew from Belgium and AmBev from Brazil) acquiring Anheuser-Busch from the United States. In October 2015, Anheuser-Busch InBev announced a successful all-cash bid to acquire multinational competitor SABMiller for £69 billion (US $107 billion). Shareholders for both companies approved the merger on September 28, 2016. The deal closed on October 10, 2016. The new entity has approximately 500 beer brands in over 100 countries.
SABMiller ceased trading on global stock markets. The company subsequently sold the former SABMiller’s interest in MillerCoors to Molson Coors, sold many of the former SABMiller’s European brands to Asahi Breweries and sold much of its Coca-Cola bottling and distribution interests to the Coca-Cola Company.
Anheuser-Busch InBev SA/NV is a publicly listed company, with its primary listing on the Euronext Brussels. It has secondary listings on Mexico City Stock Exchange, Johannesburg Stock Exchange and the New York Stock Exchange.

First, Devils Backbone Brewing Company is inspired by traditional brewing styles, but you’ll notice we might throw in a tasteful left turn here or there. Second, since we’re surrounded by nature and are pretty big outdoors aficionados, we generally like to stick to beers on the sessionable side so your rucksack or bike’s the only thing weighing you down. And thirdly, we love to make true-to-style beers, mostly lagers. You can call us a lagerhouse if you want, but we’re not big on being pushy ‘round here. Read More
