Anheuser-Busch forced to sell its two Ky. distributorships

(WHAS 11)--A defeat in Frankfort for Anheuser-Busch after the state senate voted to force the beverage giant to sell its two Kentucky distributorships.

The bill strengthens Kentucky's three-tier alcohol beverage control system,banning brewers from also owning distributorships.

Craft breweries worried Anheuser-Busch would only sell and market its own products if it owned distributors.

Governor Steve Beshear's office indicates he will sign the measure. Anheuser Busch says the fight isn't over.
