Last week, Belgian company InBev acquired Anheuser-Busch, the maker of Budweiser (Yay, America!) to the tune of $52 billion.

“I’ll tell you one thing,” said a 21-year-old concrete worker during his lunch break at The Brick of St. Louis bar, in the shadow of this city’s storied Anheuser-Busch Cos. brewery, “if Budweiser is made by a different country, I don’t drink Budweiser anymore. I’ll go back to Wild Turkey.” (Wild Turkey, a Kentucky bourbon, is owned by French drinks giant Pernod Ricard SA.)
