Blog: Chris Brook-CarterInBev - beer, beer everywhere but not a drop to drink

Chris Brook-Carter | 4 October 2004

It may be the world's biggest brewer - and in beer-loving Belgium at that - but InBev does not want its managers drinking at lunchtime.

Alcohol will no longer be served in the canteen when staff move into the company’s new headquarters this year.

Lunchtime drinking is out of tune with the culture of the new, more international company, spokeswoman Marianne Amssoms said.

Unions upset at the lack of consultation were told that the company bar would still serve beer after work.
