InBev is considering making a $46bn (£23.2bn) bid for rival brewer Anheuser-Busch.

InBev, which makes Stella Artois, is working on a takeover deal, according to the Financial Times, and other reports suggest an offer could be tabled as early as today (Tuesday).

The company's board of directors was about to decide whether to allow its advisers to start negotiating with Anheuser-Busch, according to the Belgian press.
