    Hmm. Cheap, high-ABV beer marketed to poor blacks. Where have I seen this before?
    On another note, it appears that the atrophy of macro beer in the U.S. could be driving these companies to grow markets elsewhere. Also interesting that these brewers can negotiate lower excise taxes for some of their beers.
