MarketWatch:

Anheuser-Busch Cos. has approved a $52 billion takeover bid by InBev in a deal that will create the world's largest beer maker and transfer ownership of the iconic American brewer to the Belgian-Brazilian giant.

The new company, to be called Anheuser-Busch InBev, would have had net sales of about $36.4 billion in 2007. Anheuser-Busch and Belgian-based InBev together operate 300 brands, including Anheuser's Budweiser and Bud Light and InBev's Stella Artois and Beck's.

I wonder if McCain's pledge to "veto every single beer" would extend to this deal?
