ABI just lobbied our State legislature into passing a cooler leasing bill that allows them to control which beers are sold cold, and which are sold warm. Cold beer outsells warm beer 2 to 1. I need to know how much money Iím giving ABI, which allows them said power to bribe their way to an unfair playing field.

ABI has been and will continue to do shit like this regardless of whatís happening here.

And where is it in Joeís post that tells us any money paid to ratebeer goes to ABI?


Nowhere. Which is exactly why I would like more information regarding the deal.

At least upload an avatar before you pretend to give a shit about RateBeer. Welcome new user!

Iíve seen a ton of these new people join recently with no identifying details and just stirring up shit. Go back to TalkBeer.


Ok, not a new user, same question; what % does abinbev own?
There are so many nefarious things they have done with lobbying and attacking smaller breweries.

Thatís how minority interest accounting works. ABís pro-rata share of RateBeerís profits roll up.

At least you finally added some personal details to your profile. Thanks for that. I hope youíll stick around once the news-cycle has moved on to whatever new beer style is hot right now.

Question is: Did AB give Joe a % share in Budweiserís profits?

Iíd wager that ratebeers database is one of the main reasons AIB was interested in the deal. If data was the only thing that they cared for interacting with the Ratebeer API would have sufficed. Its an information and data driven market today. Iím sure AIB got what theyíve bargained for.
