Consumers from California, Pesylvania and other states, filed a $5million lawsuit against Anheuser-Busch, accusing that they are watering down the beers. The lawsuit involves 10 of the Anheuser-Busch beers, included Budweiser and Michelob. The information, according to the lawyer Josh Boxer, came from former employers of the company, which certify that the modern equipment the company owns, is recording every data related to the alcohol level of each beer which is been produced.
In the lawsuit is mentioned that Anheuser-Busch started to use this method since 2008, after the merge with InBev. The result of this merge was the forming of the largest alcohol producing company of the world. The watering down method lead to quality decrease of the product, with purpose to low the production costs, something that made the consumers to feel decepted and not without a reason.
The company’s answer came from its Vice-President of Brewing and Supply of Anheuser-Busch, Mr. Peter Kraemer, stated the following: “The claims against Anheuser-Busch are completely false, and these lawsuits are groundless. Our beers are in full compliance with all alcohol labeling laws. We proudly adhere to the highest standards in brewing our beers, which have made them the best-selling in the U.S. and the world”.
