It may seem odd to picture the demise of the flagship brand of the world’s largest beer company. But Anheuser-Busch – the U.S.-based unit of AB InBev – is following in the footsteps that led to the irrelevance of a host of other once-dominant companies – Eastman Kodak, Woolworth’s Department Stores, Bethlehem Steel and Blockbuster Video, to name a few.

While AB InBev shareholders are cheering each move to boost short-term profitability by snapping up other companies – including the US$110 billion takeover of rival SABMiller – CEO Carlos Brito may be unwittingly digging Anheuser-Busch’s grave by ignoring long-term trends.
