SABMiller is the maker of Miller and Coors, as well as beers well known in Latin America and Africa. Bloomberg's sources previously said the company rejected a recent $100 billion proposal, telling the outlet its executives and shareholders believed $110 billion was a fair deal.

This means the deal will also likely encounter anti-trust scrutiny. Analysts told The New York Times SABMiller will likely have to break up the MillerCoors venture it formed with Molson Coors in 2008. (Video via SABMiller)
Which means even if Anheuser-Busch InBev gets the non-American brands from SABMiller it desires, Miller Lite, Coors Lite and Blue Moon may not become subjects of the "king of beers." (Videos via SABMiller)
