AB InBev is the world’s largest beer company, with brands like Budweiser, Stella Artois and Corona. We are proud of our European roots – indeed our Belgian history goes back more than 600 years, and today our European company has more than 7,500 employees within the European Union alone, with 30 breweries in locations such as Belgium, Germany, UK, Spain, the Netherlands, Italy and Luxembourg. And we intend to be brewing beer and building brands that will continue to bring people together for the next 100 years and beyond. That’s why we dream BIG: to be the most sustainable brewer, to create a nation of smart drinkers, and to be one of the best places to work and challenge yourself. Join us to hear what we are doing to promote smart drinking, support our communities and protect our natural environment.
