Busch sale may open doors for smaller businesses

I think we could better summarize that Busch will go back to the way they were pre InBev. Prior to that they (specifically BGW) worked with lots of small businesses for various commercial needs.

The big thing that killed them working with SB was the forced move to Net 90 from Net 30, due to InBev's European method of payment. Most companies cannot operate with that payment structure and usually leads to one of 2 things.. Sucking it up, but charging more to Busch or 2 cutting your losses and taking your business away.

Either way as I said day 1.. More and more positive aspects will become apparent. I still hold to my original comment.

I can't believe anyone can get away with net 90 terms. It's bad enough that I have to deal with that in online advertising much of the time.
