"Chicago's Craft Beer" is the tagline gracing the top of the website of Goose Island Beer Co., but, with an announcement today involving St. Louis fixture Anheuser-Busch, that tagline of origin may become a little muddled.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is citing an Anheuser-Busch InBev can plant subsidiary in suburban St. Louis for several violations after two accidents in which employees suffered amputations.
OSHA said Wednesday that one worker at Metal Container Corp. in Arnold lost fingers in machinery. A second lost a foot in a forklift accident.
Anheuser-Busch InBev reported a 24 percent drop in fourth-quarter profits today, the St. Louis Business Journal reports.
And what are the numbers behind the drop? According to the Business Journal:
Brewing giant, Anheuser-Busch InBev, is looking to grow its market base in Europe after reports project higher savings than expected.
The producer of hoppy classics like Budweiser and Stella Artois is looking forward to some $.75 billion in savings, says Chief Executive Carlos Brito.
Toxicology results for Adrienne Martin are back, but officials with the St. Louis County Medical Examiner's office are still evaluating those results as they try to determine what killed her.
Martin was the girlfriend of former Anheuser-Busch CEO August Busch IV. She was found dead at his estate on Dec. 19.
