Altria Group's Historic Beer Ownership
Altria Group owned and operated Miller Brewing until 2002, when Miller Brewing merged with South African Breweries plc, forming the world's second-largest brewer, SABMiller. Altria retained approximately 27 percent economic interest in SABMiller.
In November 2015, AB InBev and SABMiller announced their agreement to combine. On October 10, 2016, the transaction closed allowing Altria's continued participation in the global beer profit pool with an approximately 10.2 percent ownership in AB InBev, including two seats on its Board of Directors.
