Where has all the beer gone ?

Recommended Posts

Guess I'll have to make do with my stash of Coronas, Carlsbergs, Budweisers and Hoegaardens.

'Bud'....?..cheesy.gif.pagespeed.ce.HaOxm9--Zv.gifcheesy.gif.pagespeed.ce.HaOxm9--Zv.gifcheesy.gif.pagespeed.ce.HaOxm9--Zv.gif

You stick to your Leo's. I'll drink, my Euro beers

You think Budweiser and Corona are Euro beers?

You truly know nothing about beer.

Really, this is the 3rd time. Can any of you read??

The history of brewing in České Budějovice (Budweis, Kingdom of Bohemia) dates back to the 13th century, when the city received the brewing rights.[2] The original Budweiser Bier or Budweiser Bürgerbräu (Czech:Budějovický měšťanský pivovar), was founded here in 1785. The company began exporting to the United States in 1871.[3][4] In the U.S., Anheuser-Busch started using the Budweiser brand in 1876 and registered it two years later.

A second company (now named Budvar) was established in 1895 in same town by mainly Czech brewers, which also started exporting beer under the name Budweiser (being the German way of referring to something from the city such as a beer, while "Budějovický" means the same in Czech). These exports into the US market led to the Budweiser trademark dispute. Negotiations between the three companies, the two from the original town and the American Anheuser-Busch, about using "Budweiser" reached an agreement in March 1938 that allowed Anheuser-Busch to use the brand "Budweiser" only in North America.[5]

After the fall of communism, both local breweries tried to secure rights to traditional names.

Does that help, or do you need to get your set of crayons out?

kurnell, I got get my set of crayons out:

That may be true for Europe.

But on Nov.18,1994, Anheuser-Busch International Inc. and Bangkok distributor, Thai International Products Co. Ltd., launched Budweiser in Thailand.

ST. LOUIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 18, 1994--Anheuser-Busch International Inc. and Bangkok distributor, Thai International Products Co. Ltd., today announced the launch of Budweiser, the world's largest- selling beer, in Thailand.
Anheuser-Busch International Inc. is a subsidiary of the parent company, Anheuser-Busch Companies Inc. and is responsible for the company's foreign beer operations and for exploring and developing beer markets outside of the United States. Its activities include contract and license brewing exports, sales, marketing and distribution of the company's beers in foreign markets, as well as equity partnerships with foreign brewers. With sales in more than 65 countries, Anheuser-Busch International is the leading exporter of beer from the United States, accounting for about 43 percent of all beer exports.

So I think the Wikipedia statement, "that allowed Anheuser-Busch to use the brand "Budweiser" only in North America." isn't quite correct. Since the Thai agreement occurred in 1994 and the agreements mentioned in Wikipedia occurred after 2006.

In fact my point for Forrest Gump and his buds was that the beer I was drinking was a European beer and not a yank beer.

Just popped in the local Family Mart (Soi 12 Pattaya Klang), and there's NO BEER at all!!!

Went round to the 7/11 nearby and there's very little left on the shelves (even less after my visit).

Just wondering how long this, "shortage" is set to last?

My regular 7-11 (Darkside) now has large and small Leo bottles; I don't know what the price is.

No large bottles of San Mig Light, but the small SMLs are still 40 baht, the old price :)

Makro is full of beer at the moment

The Senate approved the tax hike so Makro and others will start sticking it on the display stands instead of hoarding it out the back.
