I can see that amp and dv8 will never become real Dominicans .If you can not appreciate Presidente and do not know the difference in taste between Presidente and Brahma, then you are not a Dominican . Chalk and cheese

These are big global players.
I used to hang out with the Labatt people in Canada.... they were bought

BTW, the new BlueJay value is about $1,5B..... up 10x since Rogers bought.

Labatt's started it for under $10M.... like $5-6......
Look up N.E.(Peter) Hardy and Peter N. Widdrington

Don't like the idea of super conglomerates they smother competition, the consumer suffers.

I think it's all in the name. If Bohemia or Brahma were bottled and had Presidente slapped on the label I'm sure those would become the #1 beer here too.
No way.
NOTHING beats an ice cold ceniza Presidente on the beach.

51% is more than enough to do what you want with the company
I don't know about that. Often big decisions you need 66% of the votes. However the deal with CND was apparently split in the production part (owned by Ambev) and the distribution part, owned by Grupo Leon Jimenes.

Bohemia is a better beer than Presidente, hands down. It's stronger and more flavorful. Presidente is a bland beer that lacks character.

If not liking Presidente doesn't make me, "platanao" then I will never be Dominicano.
