This story is a waste of time for consumers in Japan. Every bar, izakaya, pub in Japan sells one beer: Asahi, Kieran, Sapporo, Premium Malts, and if you're lucky, Yebisu--which is just Sapporo in another outfit. Japanese beverage companies buy these foreign beverage companies to stifle competition, keep Japanese drinking only Japanese beer, and to sell sporadically a foreign beer for an arm and a leg.

There is an increasing number of places in Japan that sell lots of different beers: there's no need to suffer the corn and rice-ridden slop any longer.

It is being acquired by Asahi Group Holdings, not Asahi Holdings. Big difference.

I can buy just about Japanese beer in America, a long with hundreds of others. I'm not talking about a special 'high cost' import store. I'm talking about 'EVERYWHERE'. If Americans truly new how Japan has 'zero' competition, I confident that they would demand massive tariffs on all thier products. The American Military Establishment has produced a political situation of compensating the Japanese 'elite' with unfair market advantages so they support occupation. The people of Japan suffer with extremely high prices. Average cost of a quality Micro Beer in California is USD 5.99-7.99, for Six bottles. Budweiser (a crappy US beer) is 2.99 a six pack. Crazy... how Japan limits competition and rips off it's people.
