Update. As this story develops, it's worth following Twitter to see the reactions. 10 Barrel is saying "trust us," but that mainly seems to be sowing more mistrust (though 10 Barrel has their supporters). Comments on the Facebook announcement make for similarly interesting reading.
Further update. The AB press release.
ST. LOUIS and BEND, Ore. (November 5, 2014) – Anheuser-Busch today announced it has agreed to purchase 10 Barrel Brewing Company, located in Bend, Ore. One of the country’s fastest-growing and most innovative breweries, 10 Barrel was one of only four U.S. breweries to win three medals and tied for most medals won at this year’s Great American Beer Festival, the largest beer competition in the world.
