A-B in talks to import Guinness, Bass

Published on .

Guinness Bass Import Co. is believed to be in discussions with Anheuser-Busch Cos. regarding domestic distribution rights for its Guinness Stout and Bass Ale. Such an arrangement would allow A-B distributors a more diverse portfolio without going outside the A-B family. Guinness Bass parent Bass PLC currently is shopping its brewery division; it's not known how a sale would affect a transaction with A-B.
