The Department of Justice announced on Friday that it has reached an official settlement with Anheuser-Busch InBev and Grupo Modelo.  The deal will allow AB InBev to proceed with its $20 billion purchase of the Mexican brewer.

Budweiser Black Crown, the latest of Anheuser-Busch's higher-alcohol beers, will hit shelves across the country on Monday.  The beer has been sold in St. Louis for several weeks now.
