Sen. Wyden suspects big breweries trying to push out craft breweries.

Senator Ron Wyden says he views with alarm reports that Anheuser Busch is in negotiations with SAB Miller Brewing on a possible merger. Against this backdrop Wyden says he fears such a merger will only further the big national breweries’ efforts to control local markets through their wholly owned distributorships which could limit beer choices on tap and in stores all across the country.

Wyden, in his letter to the Federal Trade Commission, expressed concern that Oregon’s 230 beer breweries as well as its distillers and cider producers could find themselves squeezed out of the marketplace thereby imperiling Oregon jobs – over seven thousand – and the state’s $2.8 billion home-grown industry that continues to grow and thrive.

Wyden has introduced a bill to give the FTC more market monitoring resources to determine whether the proposed merger of Anheuser Busch and Miller could produce a giant monopoly that would mortally wound Oregon’s own contribution to the craft beer marketplace by being excluded from the beer distribution networks run largely by the two big national breweries.
