Is Budweiser owned by Labatt?

Answered by Douglas Hiatt

Budweiser is not owned by Labatt. Labatt is actually a subsidiary of Anheuser-Busch InBev SA/NV, which is the parent company of Budweiser. Labatt Brewing Company is one of the many breweries that fall under the ownership of Anheuser-Busch InBev.

Labatt Brewing Company, commonly known as Labatt, is a Canadian beer company that was founded in 1847. It has a long history and is well-known for its popular brands such as Labatt Blue and Labatt Blue Light. Labatt operates six breweries across Canada, located in London, St. John’s, Montreal, Halifax, Creston, and Edmonton.

On the other hand, Budweiser is an American beer brand that was first introduced in 1876. It is renowned for its distinctive red label and the iconic Budweiser Clydesdales. Budweiser is one of the flagship brands of Anheuser-Busch InBev, which is a multinational brewing company formed through the merger of Anheuser-Busch and InBev in 2008.

Anheuser-Busch InBev, often referred to as AB InBev, is the largest brewer in the world. It owns a vast portfolio of beer brands, including Budweiser, Stella Artois, Corona, Beck’s, and many others. The company operates breweries and distribution networks in various countries around the globe.

As mentioned earlier, Labatt is a subsidiary of Anheuser-Busch InBev. This means that Labatt operates under the ownership and control of AB InBev. While Labatt has its own distinct brands and operations, it is ultimately part of the larger AB InBev family.

Labatt is not the owner of Budweiser. Budweiser is owned by Anheuser-Busch InBev, which is the parent company of Labatt Brewing Company. Both Labatt and Budweiser are well-known beer brands, but they operate under the same corporate umbrella of AB InBev.
