Budweiser lager has moved to strengthen its ownership of the name, making a small acquisition in the Czech city whose rival brew fought for years over rights to one of the world’s best-known brands. Anheuser-Busch InBev SA said it had bought a brewery called Samson in the southern Czech city of Budweis, home to a state-owned brewery that makes Budvar, or Budweiser. AB Inbev, whose brands also include Corona and Stella Artois, brewed 425 million hectolitres of beer in 2013, versus 1.4 million made by its Czech trademark rival Budvar.
