4 Beers That Americans Apparently No Longer Want To Drink

Walk into a lot of bars in this country and there’s a decent chance you’ll see the taps that once belonged to big brands increasingly being taken over by smaller operations (even if some of those “craft” brands also happen to be owned by one of the mega-brewers).

Budweiser Loses The Right To Call Itself Budweiser In Italy

Although beer giant AB InBev might have won one battle against its Czech brewery foe Budejovicky Budvar, it’s a whole different story in Italy.

Case Of Bud Light Comes With Free Dead Snake

Getting something extra in your case of beer sounds pretty appealing…but maybe not when that extra something is a dead snake. It’s not clear how a small snake ended up inside an 18-pack of Bud Light, but the customer who bought it decided not to take any chances. He won’t drink it, mostly because of the dead-snake stench.

Budweiser ‘Buddy Cup’ Lets You Facebook Friend Someone By Clinking Glasses For Some Reason

Sure, you could take your smartphone with you when you go out drinking, take some bleary-eyed selfies, and use the Facebook app to add all of your new friends to your Facebook friends page.

Budweiser Worked Really Hard On New Bow Tie Can Since Other Shapes Are Way Uncool

A beer can is a beer can is a beer can — it’s cylindrical and contains beer, and you hold it in your hand in order to drink the liquid inside. We haven’t done much thinking on the matter, but over at Anheuser-Busch a lot of brains have been bent on well, bending the traditional can into a new shape. Why? Because it looks like a bow tie, see, and Budweiser’s logo is also a bow tie. So, yeah. [More]

Is Budweiser Really Watered Down? One Test Says Nah, Not So Much

We were shocked, simply shocked at claims made in a recent lawsuit that Budweiser and other Anheuser-Busch InBev brews are watered down and as such, not as strong as their advertised alcohol content. Those allegations are based on information the plaintiffs say they procured from AB InBev workers. But how about getting some scientists on the case, just for fun? [More]

Usually corporations are positively begging, by way of advertising dollars, to get their products placed in the movies. But although Denzel Washington might enjoy its beer, Budweiser doesn’t want the actor slugging away at one while driving a car in his new movie Flight.
