Leading Brewers in the World by Volume

Belgium brewer InBev made a $46.3 billion cash bid for Anheuser-Busch, the largest brewer in the United States, late Wednesday.

If successful, the deal would push InBev, the brewer of Stella Artois, Beck's and Brahma, back into the number one position in world brewing.

Here is a list of the world's leading brewers by volume of beer sold in 2007 before taking into account any potential InBev-Anheuser deal.
