Beer drinkers accuse Anheuser-Busch of watering down brews

Uh-oh;

Beer drinkers in three U.S. states filed lawsuits accusing brewing giant Anheuser-Busch of watering down and mislabeling Budweiser, Michelob and other brands to cut costs.

The lawsuits, filed in the last week in California, Pennsylvania and New Jersey, said the brewing giant cheated consumers by listing a higher alcohol content than the beers actually contained.

Ten Anheuser-Busch products were named in the lawsuits: Budweiser, Michelob, Michelob Ultra, Bud Ice, Bud Light Platinum, Hurricane High Gravity Lager, King Cobra, Busch Ice, Natural Ice and Bud Light Lime.

Former employees at the company’s 13 breweries -- including some in high-level positions -- are cooperating with the plaintiffs, said San Rafael, Calif., lawyer Josh Boxer, the lead attorney in the case.


Overheard at a brewery somewhere in St. Louis, "My God man! I have watered the beer down as far as she'll go! I canna water no more!"

4. In my high school days.....it was rumored that Bud was diluted draft horsey pee-pee.



My HS years were 76'-1980 and I didn't know any better.

So glad my experiences of beer weren't just limited to watery tasting, bland Bud!

15. Have never tested diluted draft horsey pee-pee unless it were in a Bud I once tried to drink.

But in my opinion, diluted draft horsey pee-pee surely would taste better than that Bud.

6. The mislabeling isn't the alcohol content

If Bud says "beer" on the can, it's mislabeled.

Speaking as a Canadian, I don't understand how you can call that "beer".

Bud is like making love in a canoe. It's fucking close to water.

11. These people most likely aren't serious beer drinkers.

See we know that Budweiser is watered down shit. Drink craft brew - it's just better!

12. I noticed a difference

I used to drink coors light but now it takes increasingly more to get a decent buzz, So i switched to Blue moon and will never look back the beer is just so much better in every possible way, stays colder longer is always consistent and six gets me feeling good every time oh and did i mention taste better.
