    Videos featuring a small factory in China producing fake beer are now making the rounds on Chinese social media and it’s grossing everybody out. The clips, which are earning collective expressions of disgust among netizens, showed counterfeit beer being siphoned into used Budweiser cans in a process that has a complete disregard for hygiene and care for consumers. Shanghaiist published the videos edited in one footage, showing factory workers using their bare hands while dunking used beer cans into a tub to fill them up with beer-like liquid. Once filled, the cans are sent down a conveyor belt to get...

    Super Bowl LI on Sunday night was as close to a politics-free experience as a football fan could have hoped for, with even halftime performer Lady Gaga eschewing political talk in favor of high-energy showmanship — but several big-name brands couldn’t help but include overt political messaging in their Big Game advertising.

    Budweiser’s Super Bowl 2017 commercial is a pro-immigration propaganda piece, which will undoubtedly turn off half of their customers, who are already voicing their disapproval of the ad online. It's called "Born the Hard Way." Media analyst Mark Dice has the story.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oCH5ARvtPO0

    Anheuser-Busch just won the Super Bowl of advertising with this timely cinematic ad spot celebrating its immigrant founder, Adolphus Busch. The 60-second TV ad is set to make a star of handsome Sam Schweikert, who plays the young German entrepreneur from Hamburg. The beautifully shot commercial, titled “Born the Hard Way,” was released Tuesday, and hits in the midst of a raging immigration debate. It celebrates the struggle of the company’s founder to make it to St. Louis — still the company’s headquarters — and realize his vision of creating a new kind of beer.

    Whom did I picture yesterday when I heard that Budweiser will change its name to “America” on 12-ounce can and bottle labels from May 23 through Election Day? Donald Trump. The presidential candidate’s retrograde call to “make America great again” has gouged such a repetitive stress wound in my head that he’s all I can envision when anyone invokes the name of our nation. I believe that with the “America” rebrand, Anheuser-Busch InBev may be banking on this subliminal connection. The marketing campaign is coding in the same language of Trump’s Great America themes – a smart move considering how...

    Anheuser-Busch is renaming Budweiser, its most famous brand, as America. All 12-ounce cans and bottles of Budweiser will feature the word "America" on their labels, instead of Budweiser, in the brand's distinctive cursive font. The temporary label swap, which starts on May 23 and will go through the presidential election in November, is meant "to inspire drinkers to celebrate America and Budweiser's shared values of freedom and authenticity."

    Just in case Budweiser's galloping horse-filled commercials overlaid with text like "not soft," "not small," "not imported" wasn't a tipoff, the beer company wants you to know that they’re American as apple pie. (Well, except for the fact that they’re owned by Belgian corporation Anheuser-Busch, but let's not get bogged down in minutia.) The company will double down on its patriotism this summer when it renames itself "America."

    BRUSSELS/LONDON - Anheuser-Busch InBev has approached rival SABMiller about a takeover that would form a brewing colossus producing a third of the world's beer. A merged group would have a market value of around $275 billion at current prices, and would combine AB InBev's dominance of Latin America with SABMiller's dominance in Africa, both fast-growing markets, as well as their breweries in Asia. "The real attraction is Africa, where AB InBev has no presence, as well as some add-ons in Asia and Latin America," said Societe Generale analyst Andrew Holland. SABMiller, the world number two and maker of Peroni, Grolsch...

    Nothing is worse than having to use a porta-a-potty at a crowded festival. But a Danish agricultural group wants to put all that urine to good use—by turning it into beer. Roskilde, northern Europe’s largest music festival, which took place in Zealand, Denmark from June 27-July 4, launched its “piss to pilsner” initiative with the aim of collecting 25,000 liters (or 6,600 gallons) of festival goer’s urine, reports the Guardian.

    PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Some companies boast of making beer with spring water from majestic mountains. They won't be competing in the upcoming Pure Water Brew Challenge, in which an Oregon wastewater treatment operator has asked home brewers to make great-tasting beer from hops, barley, yeast and the key, not-so-secret ingredient: treated sewer water.

    Anheuser-Busch InBev is having a tough time getting millennials to crack open a can of Budweiser. The world’s biggest brewer said Thursday that falling unemployment and “premium” brands are boosting overall beer sales in the US, its biggest market. But the company is struggling to market Bud — the 139-year-old American brand with blue-collar roots — to younger drinkers, who prefer craft brews and bourbon.
  • Labor pushes 'union beers' at Super Bowl (Budweiser, Miller, Coors, Blue Moon, PBR, Shock Top)

    Football fans will be discouraged from drinking “non-union” beers like Guinness and Heineken while they’re at Super Bowl parties. During Sunday’s Super Bowl between the New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks, labor groups are hoping to raise awareness about beer companies that are unionized and pay their employees good wages. Labor 411’s list of approved beers for the Super Bowl includes companies like Stella Artois, which boasts strong union membership. But Guinness, Heineken, Corona, Flying Dog, and many other beermakers did not make the list, said Robert Fulton, the editorial director of Labor 411. "If you’re out making your choice...

    If you're looking for a heartwarming advertisement about 9/11, look no further than this throwback ad from Budweiser in 2002. The ad shows several Clydesdale horses crossing the Brooklyn Bridge and other scenes before the horses kneel down before a scene of New York City. The ad was only shown once during the 2002 Super Bowl, but boy did it make an impact. Here's a little more background on the ad from the St. Louis-based company AB Global Creative: “We filmed in New York City. We had a helicopter going over the Brooklyn Bridge. Mayor Guiliani let us into the...

    For the record, I'll not be watching the Super Bowl on Sunday. That being said, there seems to be as much talk about the inevitable Super Bowl ads that companies produce. Many of them are classics, including several from Budweiser. I found the story behind this year's Budweiser Super Bowl ad on Facebook and after watching it, finding myself in tears for a good portion of the story, I can do nothing less than share it with my readers. The Budweiser ad tells the story of Lt. Chuck Nadd and his homecoming to Winter Park, FL. The video I have...

    Budweiser debuts new Super Bowl ad showing the life of iconic Clydesdale from just two weeks old ..This year's Budweiser Super Bowl ad isn't funny or sexy, but you just might shed a tear. For decades, Anheuser-Busch has used its famous Clydesdales in Super Bowl ads for Budweiser. Instead of a herd of majestic hoof-stomping steeds thundering across a valley floor, this year's 60-second ad centers on the bond an adorable Clydesdale foal shares with his trainer. The latest star is barely two weeks old. A foal born January 16 at Anheuser-Busch's Warm Springs Ranch near the mid-Missouri town of...
