Anheuser-Busch InBev is teaming up with St. Louis-based Major Brands to get back an Oregon beer distribution operation it sold back in 2008. The deal will return ownership of Western Beverage in Eugene, Oregon to A-B InBev in the next couple of months.


A-B InBev vice president of business and wholesaler development Don Johnson says buying back Western would help A-B to compete better in the St. Louis area which is a craft-heavy beer market.
