If there's any question of Heineken engaging in anti-competitive business practices as ABI does, here's an interesting recent lawsuit.

On April 18, 2007 the European commission fined Heineken €219.3m, Grolsch €31.65m and Bavaria €22.85m for operating a price fixing cartel in the Netherlands, totalling €273.7m. InBev, (formerly Interbrew), escaped without a penalty because it provided "decisive information" about the cartel which operated between 1996 and 1999 and others in the EU market. The brewers controlled 95% of the Dutch market, with Heineken claiming a half and the three others 15% each.[33]
Inbev snitched and was totally innocent of such practices? :rolleyes:
