U.S. soccer fans face World Cup drink dilemma


SEATTLE — Thousands of soccer fans will be watching the United States take on Belgium in the World Cup today, but it could pose problems for fans who plan to have a beer during the game.

Belgium-based brewery Anheuser-Busch InBev owns several popular American beer brands, including:

  • Budweiser / Bud Light
  • Busch / Busch Light
  • Michelob / Michelob Light
  • Stella Artois
  • Rolling Rock
  • Beck’s
  • Natural Light

Anheuser-Busch was founded in the United States, but sold to Belgium-based InBev in 2008.  See the full list.

For purists, Coors isn’t an American beer, either (it’s owned by a half-Canadian company).  To make things more complicated, Corona is produced in Mexico, but is owned by an American company.  Sam Adams, Yuengling, Pabst Blue Ribbon, and local favorites Olympia, Rainier, and Redhook are all owned by companies in the United States.  Of course, microbrews made in the Pacific Northwest are crafted locally.
