InBev will launch Brahma beer as its third global brand, according to reports.

Citing a source who would speak only on condition of anonymity, Reuters said yesterday (2 March) that the brewing giant plans to release Brahma worldwide on 17 March.

The launch would include Europe and the US, the source told Reuters.

Brahma is the flagship brand produced by Brazil's AmBev, which merged with Interbrew to form InBev last year.

InBev currently boasts Stella Artois and Beck's as its premium flagship brands around the world.
