Can Capitol Hill Crush a Beer Monopoly?

As the biggest beer distributors prepare to merge, lawmakers on the Hill are rushing to block it, fearing that a Big Beer monopoly could crush homegrown distributors.

A bipartisan group of lawmakers want to do keg stands on the grave of the proposed merger of Anheuser-Busch InBev and SABMiller, but there's a problem: They're struggling to find a tap.

"We're going to stop it," Rep. Peter DeFazio (D-Ore.) told The Daily Beast. But when pressed on the details of their strategy, the co-chair of the House Small Brewers Caucus was at a rare loss for words. "We haven't figured that out yet."

Ruh-roh.
