The word is official today. Anhueser-Busch has bought a majority share of both Sam Adams and Sierra Nevada.

Turns out A-B was unloading unsold bottles of their "hi-test" Christmas beer to employees before the expiration date and the accountants in the Purchasing & Acquisitions Department, after a "lunch" in the parking lot (it WAS such a lovely spring day), screwed up the deals and bought these outfits "by mistake". (Lesson- "Don't drink and merge.")

Ah, yes, and do look at the date on the press release.
I always thought smart guys from Seattle were less gullible than most.

Actually, because it fell on a weekend, April Fool's was, um, "celebrated" on Monday the 3rd this year...

Of course. Consider the many governmental regs on beer, for instance. (Or don't. Drink a beer instead.) Clearly, they were April Fool's gags that, somehow, got taken seriously.
However, what was not at all foolish was the bottle of 3 Fonteinen Schaerbeekse Kriek that Herself & myself downed at the Toronado last Saturday. Now, *that* is a kriek. A very good one, indeed.
No foolin'.
BTW, A-B *has* entered into a distribution deal with a small brewery, but not Boston Brewing/Sam Adams.
