'Bud-Miller' would own nearly half the world's top beers

One giant brewer could soon own nearly half the world's top beers.

The world's leading brewer, Anheuser-Busch InBev (BUD), is planning a takeover of its main rivalSABMiller (SBMRF). If the deal happens, it will be the biggest merger in brewing history, creating a company with sales of $55 billion.

And a huge stable of beer brands.

The new entity would own 18 of the world's 40 most popular beers by volume, Euromonitor data shows.

Its biggest seller? Bud Light. Despite falling sales, the brew remains the world's third most popular beer, outranking stronger brother Budweiser in fourth place.
