Not new but …
The acquisition of SABMiller by Anheuser-Busch InBev on 10 October 2016 ended the corporate use of the name SABMiller except as a business division of Anheuser-Busch InBev SA/NV (AB InBev).
As per the agreement with the regulators, the former SABMiller sold to Molson Coors full ownership of the Miller brand portfolio outside of the U.S. and Puerto Rico for US$12 billion. Molson Coors also retained “the rights to all of the brands currently in the MillerCoors portfolio for the U.S. and Puerto Rico, including Redd’s and import brands such as Peroni, Grolsch and Pilsner Urquell.” The agreement made Molson Coors the world’s third largest brewer.
As part of the agreements made with regulators before Anheuser-Busch InBev was allowed to acquire SABMiller, the company sold the Peroni, Meantime and Grolsch brands to Asahi on 13 October 2016.
After acquiring SABMiller, Anheuser-Busch InBev SA/NV agreed on 21 December 2016 to sell the former SABMiller Ltd. business in Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary and Romania to Asahi Breweries Group Holdings, Ltd. The deal includes popular brands such as Pilsner Urquell, Tyskie, Lech, Dreher and Ursus.
In August 2017, the company announced the formation of a 50-50 joint venture with Anadolu Efes, by merging both of their operations in Russia - with the entity to be known as AB InBev-Efes.
Are all the concerned Breweries been updated?
En 2016, se produjeron varias adquisiciones de marcas artesanales en el mundo: Grupo Modelo anunció que una de sus subsidiarias adquirió las artesanales Tijuana, Mexicana, Cucapá y Bocanegra; y la competencia Heineken CM hizo una alianza estratégica con la cervecería Primus para lograr una mejor distribución del producto. Diageo también realizó un acuerdo con el mezcal Unión.
I see this one has but I’m not a fan of such verbosity, it doesn’t even fit on one line. Can’t we just put “Ursus Breweries (Asahi)” like normal?
Wow, not sure how I missed this.
So now three companies have a combined share of ~85% of the Russian market… I guess this is why no one feels the need to buy out any of the craft breweries.
None of the Russian breweries have been updated to reflect this change. The situation with Ukraine is the same, although there are only three breweries affected there.
Here are ones that need to be changed, followed by the new names. In most cases it just involves changing the bit in the brackets:
