Anheuser-Busch and the shooting sports

Belgian brewer InBev acquired Anheuser-Busch (Budweiser).

Anheuser-Busch has long supported the shooting sports and for years through the local distributor sponsored a skeet shoot at my home club with both added money and prizes (with Budweiser logos attached).

Still in the box, sitting the garage, I have two Budweiser folding chairs from are last shoot.

It will be interesting to see five years from now if Anheuser-Busch will still be involved in the shooting sports, as those who do not have American values will be leading the company.

  1. FWIW...While the chances seem small, at best...there is a possibility that InBev may see the results of A-B's involvement in shooting and start similar marketing programs in Europe. There, because gun control is largely a settled matter, the shooters have more disposable income - on average - than our shooters here, so they may discover a new market. Just my $0.02
