Interbrew buys Beck's
Interbrew has traditionally steered clear of Formula 1 racing but may choose to continue with the current Beck's policy.
Beck's is the fourth largest brewery in Germany but exports more than half of its produce. Most of that goes to the United States of America - which is one of Jaguar's major target markets as well.
It may be some time before any decisions are made as the deal has to be cleared by European and German competition authorities.
