Foodopoly: Beer

Which two companies produce nearly 80 percent of the beer sold in the U.S.? Text BEER to 69866 to find out, then take action to stop the Budweiser/Corona merger: http://fwwat.ch/beeropoly.

If you look around the beer aisle at your local grocery store, it might seem like you have a lot of choices. But, in reality, all those multitudes of beer brands are owned by a handful of international beer companies. This centralization of ownership has led to higher prices and lower selection for consumers, and it’s about to get worse.

Please sign the petition asking Attorney General Eric Holder to stop the Budweiser/Corona Merger: http://fwwat.ch/beeropoly. Check out Wenonah Hauter’s book, Foodopoly, at http://www.foodopoly.org.
