U.S. Government Suing to Keep Beer Prices Down

Finally, the U.S. Government is doing something we can all agree on.

Anheuser Busch InBev (which makes Budweiser, Bud Light, etc.) wanted to merge with a Mexican beer company named Groupo Modelo who makes Corona.

The merger between the two would make a behemoth beer company worth over $20 billion dollars and they would control almost half the beer sales in the U.S. which would allow them to raise prices and reduce competition and the U.S. Government said oh no you don’t and filed suit Thursday.

The U.S. Justice Department filed an antitrust lawsuit saying that combining the two companies would threaten consumer choice. Bill Baer, head of the Justice Department’s antitrust division was quoted as saying “We took this action today because we believe the acquisition is a bad deal for American consumers.”

Upon reading this, beer drinkers across America were heard chanting, “U S A! U S A! U S A!”
