Skol was initially created to be a global beer brand. Allied Breweries (UK), Labatt (Canada), Pripps-Bryggerierna (Sweden) and Unibra (Belgium) formed a new company called Skol International in 1964. Its aim was the creation of a world-wide beer brand, Skol, which could be licensed, manufactured and marketed across the world. Since then participation in the company has changed significantly.
Currently, Skol is the most popular beer in Brazil. Originally produced by Caracu, which was bought by Brahma in 1980. Brahma merged with Antarctica and became Ambev, then InBev and later AB InBev. AB Inbev is the biggest beverage company in the world, larger than Coca-Cola in revenue. Skol beer became internationally recognized as a Brazilian beer, though not initially conceived in Brazil.
