This shall not stand!

Anheuser-Busch InBev NV (ABI), the world’s biggest brewer, was sued by consumers in three U.S. states for allegedly overstating the alcohol content in its Budweiser beer.

AB InBev’s St. Louis-based Anheuser-Busch Cos. routinely adds extra water to its finished products to produce malt beverages with significantly less alcohol content than displayed on its labels, violating state statutes on consumer protection, according to in a complaint filed yesterday in federal court in Philadelphia. Similar lawsuits were filed in federal courts in New Jersey and San Francisco.

“AB’s customers are overcharged for watered-down beer and AB is unjustly enriched by the additional volume it can sell,” Thomas and Gerald Greenberg said in the Philadelphia complaint.
AB InBev, the maker of Budweiser and Stella Artois, controls 39 percent of the U.S. beer market. The company is seeking government approval to buy the rest of Grupo Modelo SAB, Mexico’s largest beermaker, for $20.1 billion. The Modelo brands account for 7 percent of the U.S. market. AB InBev shipped 98.5 million barrels in the U.S. in 2011, according to Beer Marketer’s Insights.

The new Black Crown is pretty decent, well above any other Bud product I have tried. I will try anything once, twice if I like it... Ive only ever had 1 of any flavor Budweiser...

AB hasn't made a decent beer in over a century. It's a fuging crime that they can even label their product as beer.

After n IPA, Magic Hat #9, Sweetwater 420 drinking a Bud tastes like a mug of Dish water.. Its horrible.

My friends bought a round of beers..Miller light n I had to politley sip it for 30 minutes as it was triggering a gag reflex. Some got Bud n i just left it after a sip.. Ill just pay more.
