While most Americans enjoy a nice cold beer on a hot day or after a long day of work, several new lawsuits are popping up all over the country against Anheuser-Busch for watering down Budweiser, Michelob, and other popular beers made by the company.
On Feb. 27 NBC News reports that the complaints are coming from former employees that worked for Anheuser Busch that claim as a company wide policy, all their beer had water added to it just before the bottling process was finished.
Currently, the label of said beers claim to have anywhere from five percent alcohol for their full flavored beers to just over four percent in their lighter forms, but once the water has been added, the alcohol content drops by three to eight percent.
Anheuser Busch claims that the charges are groundless and that their company fully complies with all labeling laws and has never done such a thing as water down their beer. The suit involves 10 Anheuser-Busch products: Budweiser, Bud Ice, Bud Light Platinum, Michelob, Michelob Ultra, Hurricane High Gravity Lager, King Cobra, Busch Ice, Natural Ice and Bud Light Lime.
