Budvar correction

In mid-September, I joined the chorus of beer-bloggers breathlessly re-posting the news that Anheuser-Busch was to purchase Budvar.

Let me correct that record: at the very least, any sale has been postponed for about a year, putatively to allow the brewery to go from state control to publicly owned corporation. Czech officials have denied that negotiations with A-B have occurred.

However, there's nothing to infer that such might not occur.

Budvar Not for Sale

[UPDATE: 2008.01.12 — maybe not until 2011.]
