The world’s biggest brewer, Anheuser-Busch InBev, has said says it is facing a challenging start to the year, with sales in the United States under particular pressure.

Its fourth-quarter 2009 earnings were mixed, but boosted by a sharp increase in Brazilian sales.

The maker of Budweiser, Stella Artois and Becks said it expected to sell slightly more beer this year than last, but with limited profit growth in the early months.
