Anheuser-Busch Inbev (BUD) purchases one of the domestic rivals of Czech brewer Budvar in a bid to gain control (once and for all) of the Budweiser brand name - fought over for over 100 years in pitched legal battles between the firms. It's only a small victory for the "King of Beers," after it's been falling steadily in the rankings of sales by brand as full-calorie, non-premium varieties of beers fall out of favor.
