WASHINGTON - A federal appeals court yesterday revived a patent suit Crown Holdings Inc. filed against Anheuser-Busch Cos., the world's biggest beer maker, over aluminum can lids. Crown Holdings, maker of about one-fifth of the world's beverage cans, claims that the "Lid of the Future" by Anheuser-Busch and its Metal Container Corp. unit infringes on a patent owned by Crown and used for its "SuperEnd" beverage can. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit said U.S. District Judge John Shabaz had wrongly defined a term in the Crown patent and it remanded the case for further review.

As expected, Anheuser-Busch and Richard Childress Racing announced a sponsorship deal Tuesday involving Kevin Harvick and his No. 29 Chevy. Budweiser will be on the car in the majority of points races and two exhibition events for the next three years. It's a good fit, considering Harvick has won two Bud Shootouts. "It's a fun brand to represent," he said. Harvick became the first driver to qualify for the Chase, giving him a three-week window with limited pressure.

ST. LOUIS - On any given weekend, St. Louisans can catch a baseball game at Busch Stadium; see beer of the same name being brewed and bottled; and quaff more complimentary cups of the brew in the courtyard of the Grant's Farm's "Bauernhof." They can brunch at Bevo Mill, a South Side whimsy built by Anheuser-Busch on the eve of Prohibition to make saloon-going seem more respectable. Then they can work off that feast on a hike through the 7,000-acre August A. Busch Memorial Conservation Area in St. Charles County.

With the beer market flat and many beer drinkers searching for less expensive brands, the Anheuser-Busch Cos. announced yesterday that it would take a $565 million charge against earnings and cut its salaried work force in the United States by 10 percent.The moves, part of an extensive program to reduce costs and improve efficiency, follow what has become a pattern among large consumer product companies when buyers have more choices than ever and consumer confidence has not returned to freer-spending ways of the 1980s.

CBS will no longer air three Miller beer commercials and NBC decided to drop five, all on grounds they were unfair to rival Anheuser-Busch. One of the ads showed a Budweiser deliveryman wearing Capri pants. In a letter to Miller Brewing Co. of Milwaukee, CBS said the three commercials were "unduly disparaging" and would be dropped Dec. 30. NBC is dropping five Miller ads, NBC spokeswoman Shannon Jacobs said. Miller has targeted Anheuser-Busch Cos. Inc.'s 50 percent market share in the United States with a series of ads promoting Miller Lite as having lower carbohydrates and being preferred by drinkers over Bud Light, the best-selling U.S. beer.

ST. LOUIS, Mo. - Expect "Blue Ocean" to get deeper and Budweiser's reach to get wider. In a conference call yesterday, executives from InBev laid out their plans to expand cost-cutting at Anheuser-Busch Cos. and to build the world's dominant brewer around its new flagship brand, Budweiser. InBev chief executive Carlos Brito told analysts hours after the announcement of a $52 billion deal to buy the St. Louis brewer that the merged company, to be known as Anheuser-Busch InBev, will be the leading provider of beer in the world's five biggest beer markets and the third-largest consumer products company in the world.

CESKE BUDEJOVICE, Czech Republic -- Its market saturated at home, Anheuser-Busch, the world's biggest brewer, is peddling its Budweiser beer internationally, trying to make it a global brand. But a feisty little beer maker here is standing in its way.Both brewers have used the name Budweiser for more than 100 years. Long ago they reached an agreement that gave the Czech brewer the right to use the Budweiser name in Europe and the former Soviet Union, and gave Anheuser-Busch Cos. the right in the United States and Latin America.

Beer. On the rocks. The trend-spotting folks at Anheuser-Busch have introduced B-to-the-E, the new fruit-flavored Budweiser beer shot through with the natural stimulants caffeine, herbal guarana and ginseng. Aimed at the 21- to 27-year-old "experimenters" and "multi-taskers," B-to-the-E (also called B.E. and Bud Extra) proved so popular in Miami, New York, Los Angeles, Boston and other test markets last fall that Anheuser-Busch pushed up its national rollout a few weeks to late January.

ST. LOUIS - Hammering out a note to investors late last year, Wachovia analyst Jonathan Feeney decided to dispense some philosophical knowledge. "Beer is the best place to go - financially and personally - in a recession," he wrote. Brewers including St. Louis-based Anheuser-Busch Cos., the country's biggest beer maker, are hoping investors and drinkers agree with him. The economy is mucking through falling house values, tightening credit and slumping consumer spending. But at One Busch Place, Anheuser-Busch executives are banking on beer being what they call "recession-resistant" - largely immune to economic swings and turbulence in the markets.

Beverages can be a refreshing antidote for the summertime stock market blues. Shares of Anheuser-Busch Cos., the world's largest brewer, are up 5 percent this year. Steven Ralston, senior analyst with Zacks Investment Research, said it is an attractive purchase because it has about half the U.S. beer market. Aside from Budweiser, it also owns 50 percent of Mexico's Grupo Modelo, maker of Corona beer, and recently purchased the Rolling Rock brand. These are reasons why Warren E. Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway owns 44 million Anheuser-Busch shares.

What's up in the brewing business? I'm interested in the stock of Anheuser-Busch Companies and Adolph Coors Co. - T.R., via the Internet There will be no crying in your suds over beer industry prospects. Both brewing giants are doing just fine, though analysts prefer the stock potential of Anheuser-Busch over Coors. Domestic beer consumption has been relatively flat, imported beers are popular and international expansion is now crucial to growth. However, the fact that Generation Y - a huge group born between 1980 and 2000 - is beginning to come of legal age should boost the entire industry.
