Blog: SABMiller's last word

Today is SABMiller's final day. Some time this evening, Brussels time, the second-biggest brewer in the world will be subsumed into the biggest, creating a beer behemoth of unprecedented proportions.
There has been plenty of noise during the 13 months it has taken to create the giant new entity, but as the end nears it all seems strangely quiet: An odd way to say goodbye to a historic beverage company that brought us some of the most well-known beer brands. So, to mark the occasion in a correspondingly downbeat tone, here is SABMiller's last ever tweet.
(And, a timely reminder, you can read just-drinks' eulogy to the company here.)
Farewell, then, SAB.
