Budweiser sued for making shitty beer

AB InBev routinely adds extra water to its finished products to produce malt beverages with significantly less alcohol content than displayed on its labels, Thomas and Gerald Greenberg said in a complaint filed yesterday in federal court in Philadelphia. The company’s exaggeration of the alcohol content violates Pennsylvania’s consumer protection statutes, according to the complaint.

It’s about time.

    Loved some of their commercials, Not crazy for their beers. Dogfish Head forever is what I say.

    A 6-pack of Budweiser now has the same alcohol content as 1 bottle of Canadian beer or 2 bottles of Canadian baby food.

      I wouldn’t be so hasty to knock Canadian beer. Sapporo beats anything Budweiser has ever done.

    I think they should be sued just for calling that stuff “beer”.

    AB worthy of being sued for shitty beer, period. Or maybe the consumers that waste their money on it, not quite sure. Alas, taste is relative, but alcohol content is not, evidently.

    If people would have the faintest idea how the original “Budweiser Bürgerbräu” (Budweiser citizens brewery beer) tastes, they would burn AB’s pathetic adulteration camp to the ground. They should have no right to abuse that name.

    Folks should be sued for drinking it. Justin Timberlake, however, will save the day.

    I’m sipping on a Mikkeller as I write this. Bud should have been sued for claiming their product was a beer in the first place, forget the ABV

    To be perfectly honest, Heineken isn’t that amazing either. Guinness and Sam Adams are my faves.
