u.s., at ingersoll wine and spirits in des moines have seen an even bigger spike. >> i'd say it's at least a 50/50 split nowadays. it's taken the majority of our sales of course away from the domestic beers. mark: the u.s. senate judiciary committee met this week in washington to talk about the merger, and an iowan led the fight against it. >> i favor healthy competition, but a merger of this magnitude could impact supply access and threaten the wholesale tier of the system. mark: groben only sees craft beer increasing its market size, which is why two enemies in the beer world are looking to join forces. >> these big beer companies are feeling the heat from the small guys, and to stay competitive they have to merge together because they're seeing the market share just dwindle and dwindle. alyx: i need to make up for myself. anheuser-busch. there's also worry about how the merger would effect the supply of materials for craft brewers from packaging like bottles and
