Wait, more? Is it like 120% water now?

How could they tell?

/it tasted better?

I think a more viable suit would be by water drinkers accusing them of contaminating cans and bottles of water with a beer-like substance.

Let's get this out of the way, shall we...

I like Bud Light. And fark you, if you don't.

The best way to improve Budweiser is to add water.  A lot of water.

You mean it wasn't water already?
 
2013-02-26 06:18:06 PM  
So now it's only what, about 80% horse piss instead of 90%?  How is this bad?

Beer lovers across the country have filed $5 million class-action lawsuits accusing Anheuser-Busch of watering down its Budweiser, Michelob and other brands.

That phrase... I do not think it means what you think it means.

Duh.  Hop flavored water.

Summertime calls for the wateriest beer you can find.

Of course wintertime calls for the darkest.

An %ethanol test takes like 3 minutes on a gas chromatograph  - I was running them by day 2 as a wee little lab temp 20+ years ago.  Grab some bottles and run the freaking tests.

People that buy macro piss are already being cheated out of their money just by buying it. Now they're upset because they're being cheated out of more?

Bullshiat.  There's virtually no hop flavor in that stuff.

"Getting a kick out of it" is more than any beer drinker can say about your company's pisswater products.

That's what I was wondering... maybe it was just a clear liquid this time...?

Water drinkers need to learn to love the tap.  It's amazing.  And it's mostly free.  It doesn't pollute the environment.  There is no packaging.  It's purified for you.

OK, now...Calling me a Mexican is one thing, but calling me a Raider or Cowboy fan is just hurtful!

"Budweiser and Michelob each boast being 5 percent alcohol, while some "light" versions are said to be just over 4 percent."

"Lead lawyer Josh Boxer of San Rafael, Calif., said Tuesday the suits are based on information from former employees at some of the company's 13 U.S. breweries. Boxer said water is added just before bottling, and cuts the stated alcohol content by 3 to 8 percent. "



If you label your product as being "5% alcohol", it had damn well better be 5% alcohol. Not 6%, not 3.2%, but 5%. Otherwise the FTC will be all over your ass for "misbranding".

I'm not a brewer, but it would seem to me that when brewing, the alcohol content might tend to vary a bit from batch to batch, and it would seem logical to want to err on the high side, test the alcoholic content, and dilute (if necessary) to achieve the stated alcoholic content.

Any home brew experts care to comment / point and laugh / etc?
 
2013-02-26 06:57:25 PM  
Has anyone mentioned that there is little difference between Budweiser and water? 'Cause I figure I'm probably the first person to think of that.

Eh. You can't compare a full-flavored ale to light lager. That's like saying you'd always prefer a steak to Pad Thai. If I come in from mowing the yard on a hot summer day, I don't want a farking milk stout; I want something very cold and watery that tastes vaguely like beer.

They should name the beer "Love By The Lake" because it is farking close to water.

Since nobody drinks Budweiser, who the fark is buying it? How have they been in business all these years?

/Drinking a Miller Lite as I type.  And fark you.

I know plenty of people that drink butt lite at the bar because its whats usually on special but drink something different if they are drinking at home.

Do we have all of the "It's already water" jokes out of the way?  Good.

This is InBev's MO.  They buy up companies to consolidate the industry, lay off workers and cut pensions, and start using cheaper, lower quality ingredients to save money.  When they've milked what they can from an industry, they move on (Hello PepsiCo).  They're the Bain Capital of beer.
