Belgian Brewer Woos Anheuser-Busch Shareholders

The big beermaker InBev is playing hardball in its attempt to buy Anheuser-Busch. The St. Louis brewer is still resisting the $46 billion offer from InBev, which is based in Belgium. InBev refuses to offer more and announced plans Monday to go directly to Anheuser-Busch shareholders in the hopes of replacing the entire Anheuser-Busch board with directors more friendly to a merger.
