Rumor Mill: Could SABMiller and Molson Coors Sip From the Same Mug?

Is there a chance that SABMiller and Molson Coors might come together under some type of alliance?

The idea was floated recently by SABMiller Americas President Norman Adami in a recent interview with Thomson Financial. He told the news service that if Molson Coors "should make themselves available" then SABMiller would look closely at a deal. While stopping short of commenting on a specific deal, Adami praised Molson Coors product portfolio and management.

It is not the first time that a marriage between Coors and Miller has been discussed as an option for doing battle with Anheuser-Busch. That speculation halted in recent years when Coors joined forces with Canada's Molson and Miller became part of the South African Breweries global push.

That would be a disaster. There is a huge difference between the corporate culture of SABMiller and Molson Coors. It will lead to high turnover.
