AB InBev Drops One Case Against Heineken as Beer Battle Goes On

April 30, 2019

Bloomberg reported that Anheuser-Busch InBev SA is dropping a U.S. trade case against Heineken NV because Heineken is no longer importing its Blade or Brewlock beer dispensing systems into the U.S. According to Bloomberg, an AB InBev spokesman said the company had achieved its “desired outcome in this proceeding – namely Heineken’s withdrawal of its products from the market.” As a next step, AB InBev will move to reopen its civil lawsuit in New York that seeks monetary damages, Bloomberg said.
