Calling it a "bad deal for consumers," the Justice Department sued Thursday to block Anheuser-Busch InBev's proposed $20 billion purchase of Mexican brewer Grupo Modelo.
The suit in federal court in Washington will certainly stall, and may kill, a deal that would have given the big brewer an even bigger chunk of the $80 billion U.S. beer market and the rights to sell Corona Extra - one of the most popular import beers in the world - to consumers all over the planet.
