    Just like the big boys InBev over here that have ruined the likes of Stella (brewed in England, not the same as the proper stuff) and Tiger (brewed in Scotland).

    I've just come back from the cash & carry and they had cases of Tiger on offer but I see it's only 4.5% now,so bought Singha and Chang.
    Buy cheap, pay twice.

    ThaiBev is also behind Archa your favourite Wolfy and the ones whose noses are put out are Heineken. Following the article I spent my luchtime today doing research on this company and finally found out why Carlsberg mats/ashtrays/Umbrellas are all over the place in LOS but it's hardly sold anywhere (if at all) which would also explain why Heineken is the dominant farang beer in LOS.

    Answer for those interested is Carlsberg and the original Thai brewery had a joint venture which resulted in Chang which also explains why some Carlsberg sold in Scandinavia is known as Carlsberg elephant beer as is some Tuborg brands.

    As for my favourite the avatar speaks for itself

    Would not count on it Tribal as in SE Asia they have the smallest share of the market and are worried about losing their foothold so yes they will try to outbid ThaiBev but there are other "lurkers" in this market i.e. what do kirin do sell to the highest or hold out?

    Actually quite an interesting one this and what are Boon Rawd thinking about it?

    It's all absolute rubbish compared to the variety and quality you get in the UK where you can get so many real beers, as opposed to a few much the same crappy lagers. What a joy to go round Tescos or Morrisons back home, spoilt for choice and price. I always go for the ciders the wine when back home, as well as the beer! Can get great discounted wine in Morrisons for a fiver, you lucky devils. Beer is expensive in pubs though, I needed a drink just to get over the prices! not surprised so many are closing. Also the whisky here is second rate, they think JW black label is the good stuff and nobody seems to have heard of single malt.

    Looks like Heinekin have won subject to shareholders approval as the board have recommended their bid over ThaiBev so you were right Tribal

    Yep, Charoen wants it whatever the cost which considering the market share I understand and Heinekins feeble comment we are better won't help as selling shareholders will go for the highest price i.e. Kirin fascinating stuff eh!

    Next move Heinekin and probably down to who has the deepest pockets

    Interesting stuff especially if you hold shares and Heinekin said a done deal before so who knows the next move meanwhile the world is oblivious to all this
