HEINEKEN RENAMES MURPHY BREWERY After nearly 150 years of business, the Murphy Brewery in Cork has changed its name -- but likely will still be known to its friends as Murphy's. The Heineken, NV conglomerate last week officially changed the name of the Irish company to Heineken Ireland. It marks the final break with James J. Murphy & Co., establish in 1856. http://www.realbeer.co.nz/news/articles/news-001518.html

U.S. BREWER CAN'T USE 'AMERICAN BUD' NAME IN GERMANY A German court has ruled against Anheuser-Busch's efforts to use its Bud brand name in Germany. It said "Bud" is too much like "Bit," the diminutive of the popular German beer Bitburger. http://www.realbeer.co.nz/news/articles/news-001514.html

FOSTER'S AND HEINEKEN DENY THERE'S A TAKEOVER BREWING Shares in Foster's Brewing Group yesterday shot to near their highest ever and the Australian dollar rose strongly despite denials of a report that the company would be the target of a $15 billion bid by international beer giant, Heineken Holdings. http://www.smh.com.au/news/0105/11/biztech/biztech19.html
