Budweiser, Miller to raise prices in the fall

Neither will say by how much; both brewers seeing decline in sales

NEW YORK - The top U.S. brewers said Tuesday they plan to raise prices this fall, even as some of their top brands are seeing sales volume drop.

Anheuser-Busch, maker of Bud Light and Budweiser, and MillerCoors, maker of Blue Moon and Miller Light, both say they're going to raise prices.

But neither brewer would say how big the increases would be. Pete Marino, a spokesman for MillerCoors, said the increases will be made on a local basis, depending on the market. "Pricing has been very strong on the MillerCoors portfolio (http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/32557991/ns/business-consumer_news/#) and we believe that we can take a moderate price increase in the fall," he said.

Price increases have been helping insulate revenue results for MillerCoors, a pairing of SABMiller'shttp://www.chiefscrowd.com/forums/images/imported/2009/08/150.jpg (http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/32557991/ns/business-consumer_news/#) U.S. unit and Coors Brewing Co., from the increasing trend of consumers limiting their spending. Anheuser-Busch said in a statement it plans on raising prices on a majority of its volume in the bulk of its markets this fall too, to cover some increases in its costs. "The markets have been assessed, and we'll be acting on a by-market, by-brand and by-package basis," according to the statement from the company, the St. Louis-based North American unit of Anheuser-Busch InBev.

Sales of Miller Lite MillerCoors' flagship and Bud Light the top brand for Anheuser-Busch have both been suffering amid the recessionhttp://www.chiefscrowd.com/forums/images/imported/2009/08/150.jpg (http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/32557991/ns/business-consumer_news/#). Prices across all beers, however, have been rising. In 2008 the price of beer, ale, and other malt beverages sold for at-home consumption rose 5.3 percent, according to the government's Consumer Price Indexhttp://www.chiefscrowd.com/forums/images/imported/2009/08/150.jpg (http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/32557991/ns/business-consumer_news/#). As of July, prices on those same items were 4.6 percent higher than they were a year ago.

Canada might pick it up, though I cannot see how he can stand to drink Budweiser at all, and Miller is only slightly better.

Now the stuff that Capital T and I drink on Sunday mornings... Well let's just say if you can get past the first glass, you will feel nothing for the rest of the day.

Stone IPA 7% alcohol
Arrogant ******* Ale, 7.2% alcohol
Double Arrogant ******* Ale, (when you can get it) 14% alcohol.

Do you also wrap your bottle in a paper bag like the other hobos? I like beer because it tastes good. Getting drunk is a pleasant side effect!!

Are you worthy?

This is an agressive beer. You probably will not like it. It is quite doubtful that you have the taste or sophistication to be able to appreciate an ale of this quality and depth. We would suggest that you stick to safer and more familiar territory - maybe something with a multi-million dollar ad campaign aimed at convincing you it's made in a little brewery, or one that implies that their tasteless fizzy yellow beer will give you more sex appeal. Perhaps you think multi-million dollar ad campaigns make a beer taste better. Perhaps you're mouthing your words as you read this.

Arrogant ******* Ale

Hated by many, loved by few!
