CNNMoney.com reported today that Heineken announced plans to buy the beer operations of Mexico’s Fomento Económico Mexicano (Femsa) for about $7.6 billion, as the Dutch brewer moves to expand its operations in the Western Hemisphere.

The deal will give Heineken, which brews Amstel and other beers, control of Femsa’s key export brands, including Dos Equis, Tecate and Sol.

In total, this is about a $7.6 billion deal.
