Caption: Dr. Rob Bernardi of St. Louis loads liquor into his car for an upcoming party outside Randall's Wines & Spirits Thursday, May 3, 2012, in St. Louis. There is a quiet battle underway over the future of one of the defining characteristics of the American beer industry: The three-tier distribution system. A bill now before the Missouri Senate would ban beer companies from owning their wholesalers. It's a pre-emptive strike by the state's wholesalers against A-B InBev, which has launched a wave of distributorship acquisitions in recent months, designed to help wring savings out of the 75-year-old system that gets beer from brewery tanks to supermarket shelves.
