King of Watered-Down Beer: Anheuser-Busch Sued
A big beer brewer is in hot water, accused of illegally lightening the alcohol content of its lagers.
FOX News Radio’s Chris Hoenig has the story:
A $5 million class-action lawsuit accuses Anheuser-Busch InBev of watering down popular beers, including Budweiser, Michelob and others. The lagers are advertised as having an alcohol content between 4-6%, but lead attorney Josh Boxer says former factory workers say the company adds extra water right before bottling.
(Boxer) “This costs consumers the value that they paid for, and enables A-B to profit by adding additional water, the cheapest component of beer.”
The added water cutting the labeled alcohol content by up to 8%.
(Boxer) “We don’t have a firm denial from them that they’re engaging in this conduct, nor is there any indication that they intend to stop.”
But in a statement, Anheuser-Busch does deny the accusations, calling the lawsuits “groundless.”
