AB InBev SABMiller Merger Name Game


Hi folks. As you may know, the beer world has fermented a fusion. AB InBev and SABMiller, the two largest brewers in the world, reached an agreement on a merger. AB InBev gave them the old ‘there ain’t room in this bar for the both of us, here’s $104 billion.’ And if the deal goes through, one in three of the world’s beers will be sold by the new megabrewery. To boot, this merger would combine two nearly-unpronounceable, acronym-name hybrids into one tipsy-turvy behemoth. Certainly they can’t just smash the already awkward names together, and as our fearless partner Mark Skoultchi said in Reuters, “A sure fire way to create friction among a newly unified employee population is to tip your hat to one of their businesses and heritage but not the other.”
