    The best beers in the world are easier to get than ever before. Forty years ago, customers strolling through grocery stores would only find endless variations on the easy-drinking domestic lager. Care for a Busch? Miller High Life? Bud Light? If you were lucky, you might find an imported Irish beer like Guinness, a beach-y Mexican beer such as Corona, or perhaps even Foster’s, that Australian beer sold in the oversized can. Today’s hopheads can pick from tens of thousands of the best beers that deliver every conceivable flavor and alcohol level. Hazy double IPAs are now sold alongside zippy...
  • Is this the hangover cure we’ve been waiting for?.....The hangover “cures” on the market don’t work. A new hydrogel does.

    KEY TAKEAWAYS: * Although many supplements are claimed to prevent or alleviate the headache, nausea, fatigue, and other uncomfortable symptoms that can accompany heavy drinking, none are backed by convincing evidence. * A novel hydrogel appears to be different. When ingested, it prevents alcohol from entering the blood and stops the compound acetaldehyde from accumulating. * In experiments conducted on mice, animals that drank alcohol and were also fed the hydrogel had much lower blood alcohol levels than mice that only drank alcohol. The mice given the hydrogel were also spared from liver damage. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Share Is this the hangover...
  • Bud Light Still an Epic Failure Since Transgender Mulvaney Scandal

    Just over one year following Bud Light’s terrible decision to hire transgender influencer and professional toddler Dylan Mulvaney to promote its once pro-America beer, the company's sales are plummeting. Again. According to the first-quarter earnings report released Wednesday, Anheuser-Busch, Bud Light’s parent company, has decreased 9.1% in revenue in the U.S. The news comes more than a year after Mulvaney dressed up as a wannabe Katherine Hepburn with black gloves, pearls and red lipstick in an attempt to help Bud Light sell more beer. Mulvaney was also gifted a custom Bud Light can with his face printed on it, which...

    The Texas woman who became famous after having an outburst on a plane last year seemingly came out as conservative-leaning on X this week. Tiffany Gomas, who was dubbed "Crazy plane lady" last summer after her July 2 flare-up went viral on social media, publicized her "anti-woke" views on X. On Wednesday, Gomas posted a mirror selfie of herself wearing a red, white and blue bikini while holding a can of Ultra Right Beer, an "anti-woke" company. "Wonder how many people I’m gonna piss off with this post," the Texas resident captioned the photo.
  • Bud Light may lose 18% of grocery store shelf space after Dylan Mulvaney boycott

    Grocery stores that stock Bud Light are planning to shrink the shelf space allotted to the nation’s formerly top-selling beer — by nearly 20% in some parts of the country — after sales tanked following a boycott over its advertising partnership with trans influencer Dylan Mulvaney. The Anheuser-Busch brand — which was knocked off its perch this year by Modello after more than two decades at the top — will be squeezed out as store managers rearrange the alcoholic beverages section to give more precious real estate to better-selling beers, according to Bloomberg News. “Anheuser-Busch’s beers will lose a range...

    National Beer Day is celebrated every year on April 7th. This unofficial holiday was first celebrated in 2009 via social media activity by a man named Justin Smith. Shortly after, a beer drinking app called Untappd created a National Beer Day badge that was awarded to users. And the hashtag has been trending on social media ever since. But why April 7th? National Beer Day will be celebrated on Sunday, April 7, 2024. New Beer’s Eve is Saturday, April 6, 2024. April 7th was selected as National Beer Day because it marks the date that the Cullen-Harrison Act went into...

    Just two weeks after the Southern Baptist Convention announced a new sexual abuse prevention and response curriculum for member congregations, new allegations have rocked a small SBC church in the Florida Keys. Monte Lavelle Chitty, 62, pastor of First Baptist Church in Marathon, has been charged with sexual assault, lewd lascivious behavior and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. A Monroe County Sheriff’s Office news release said a 15-year-old girl accused the married pastor of sexually molesting her after serving her spiked alcohol at the church. A subsequently released arrest report detailed that the alleged victim “felt weak, could...
  • Bud Light loses crown as best selling Super Bowl beer - with Corona taking top spot after Dylan Mulvaney boycott

    Bud Light found itself dethroned by Corona as Super Bowl champion in the battle of the beers as the embattled brand struggles to recover from the Dylan Mulvaney backlash. Sales in bars and restaurants crashed to just half of last year's figure despite a half-time ad and months of concerted effort to steer away from the trans-friendly image that cost the brand nearly $30 billion. Corona was the top-selling beer based on whole-day sales, according to data by restaurant engagement platform Union. But Bud Light's parent company Anheuser-Busch InBev had some consolation as its Michelob Ultra brand notched up most...

    Former President Trump urged his followers to give Anheuser-Busch a “second chance” after months of criticism the company has faced from conservatives. “The Bud Light ad was a mistake of epic proportions,” Trump wrote on his Truth Social website Tuesday, referencing a brief partnership the company had with transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney that has cost it billions in market value. “Anheuser-Busch is not a Woke company,” the former president said, adding “I can give you plenty that are, am building a list, and might just release it for the World to see.” “Anheuser-Busch is a Great American Brand that perhaps...

  • Teamsters: Anheuser-Busch Strike Appears Unavoidable

    02/01/2024 7:59:38 AM PST · by Salman · 45 replies
    (WASHINGTON) — Today, Teamsters General President Sean M. O’Brien demanded Anheuser-Busch deliver its last, best, and final offer, after the company wasted another negotiating session putting forth an unacceptable proposal that threatens to kill Teamster jobs by closing breweries and permanently laying off Teamsters systemwide. After refusing to commit to protecting Teamster jobs since mid-November, Anheuser-Busch executives returned to the bargaining table this week with an offer to butcher the good-paying jobs behind its products. If the company does not reverse course and come to terms on an agreement that rewards and protects workers, 5,000 Teamsters will be forced to...

    Bud Light is staging a comeback with the launch of a flashy new Super Bowl LVIII ad after the beleaguered brand suffered huge sales losses in the wake of its disastrous marking campaign with Dylan Mulvaney. The beer brand, who is the official beer sponsor of the NFL, released a teaser of the commercial on Thursday which it said will expand its 'Easy to Drink, Easy to Enjoy' platform. 'The brand is back with a humorous spot introducing a new character to the Bud Light universe and some familiar faces from the platforms the brand has been passionate about for...
  • Beer Sales Plummeting to Lowest Level in 24 Years Amid Dylan Mulvaney Fiasco

    Beer sales in the US are expected to plunge to their lowest level since 1999 — largely due to Bud Light’s massive falloff after its disastrous tie-up with transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney, industry experts said. Sales declined by more than 5% in the first nine months of the year, dragged down not only by the backlash and boycotts against Anheuser-Busch-owned Bud Light but the changing habits of younger drinkers, according to Beer Marketer’s Insights. Bud Light sales have steadily declined each month by 25% to 30% since Mulvaney’s now-infamous posts touting the brand on April 1, according to industry data.

    Marguerite Merritt is the Cheese Emissary for Rogue Creamery. Larry Sidor is the founder and master brewer for the Crux Fermentation Project. They decided to work together to develop a limited-edition lambic-style ale — a blue cheese beer. “I think we handled a healthy dose of skepticism even from our blue cheese devotees,” Merritt told KOIN 6 News. “When I told my brewers what we were doing, they pretty much laughed. They thought, ‘no way, this will not work,'” Sidor said. The collaboration brings together 2 Oregon icons for an unusual but tasty product. A tasting event is set for...

    The Teamsters union announced Saturday that its members overwhelmingly voted to authorize a strike against Anheuser-Busch’s breweries in the U.S. if the union and beermaker are unable to reach an agreement on a new labor contract early next year. The union said that of the 5,000 Teamsters members who work at 12 Anheuser-Busch breweries in the U.S., 99% voted to authorize a strike if the two sides don’t secure a new labor contract raising wages, protecting jobs and securing benefits. The union’s current contract expires on Feb. 29, 2024. "Teamsters stand firm in our fight for the best contract at...

    Bud Light has teamed up with NFL legends Peyton Manning and Emmitt Smith in a bid to boost sales following its PR disaster with trans influencer Dylan Mulvaney which saw customers boycott the brand. The Pro Football Hall of Famers star in a new commercial released ahead of the Super Bowl which kicks off in two months time at Las Vegas' Allegiant Stadium. The brand remained the official NFL sponsor despite sales plummeting 30 percent amid controversy over its decision to partner with Mulvaney for a campaign. The influencer, 26, partnered with the beer brand in April for their March...
