The TSX was flat, easing 2.37 points to 12,658.07, while the Venture exchange added 0.11 points to 1,132.02.

Beer lovers across the U.S. have accused Anheuser-Busch Inbev Sa/Nv (NYSE: BUD, Stock Forum) of watering down its Budweiser, Michelob and other brands, in class-action suits seeking millions in damages. The suits, filed in Pennsylvania, California and other states, claim consumers have been cheated out of the alcohol content stated on labels. The stock rose 1% to $92.72.

The Dow was up 37.30 points to 13,937.43 and the Nasdaq rose 6.931 points to 3.136,58.
