The world's largest brewer Anheuser-Busch has seen its net income increase 7.8% to US$633m for the second quarter. Diluted earnings per share rose 13.6%, representing the 19th consecutive quarter of double-digit earnings per share growth. The company's results were driven by increased sales of Bud Light and the low-carb beer Michelob Ultra, as well as price increases in the period.
