By now the news out of St. Louis is about a day old: Job cuts at Anheuser-Busch. Lots of them. Not surprising. August IV more-or-less promised them last summer while the InBev deal was still a bad dream. Still -- a sad day for the fine folks at A-B, who are, in my experience, dedicated to their work and the company. I'm sure they knew it was coming but .... For excellent coverage on the event, I turn the "mic" over to the man-on--the-beat, Jeremiah McWilliams at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. The link is to his "Lager Heads" blog, but there's plenty of other team coverage by Jeremiah and his colleagues here. To my friends at A-B: I'm thinking of you.
