In recent months, Anheuser-Busch (or more specifically, AB InBev) has faced allegations that they’ve been watering down their beer, culminating in a lawsuit. Here’s their response, which ran in a number of newspapers nationwide. Clever. (via @curtyb)

Beer “Science”: We’re pretty sure we won’t be the only ones to look at this chart and think “Hey, that’s a load of crap!” That being said, considering its based on responses from previous political surveys, we can’t exactly say it has zero basis in reality. So where does the National Journal think you fall on the political spectrum, how accurate are they, or did they leave your favorite brew out entirely? source

Freedom of Information Act request filed for President’s beer recipe
After President Obama publicly debuted the White House’s home-brewed honey ale — aptly named White House Honey Ale — at a campaign stop last month, reporters and home-brewers alike have begged for details on the recipe. After a campaign on the White House’s “We The People” petition website failed, a Reddit user decided to take a more direct approach. Pictured above is an excerpt from a request filed under the Freedom of Information Act, asking that the White House release the recipe to a home-brewer with non-commercial ambitions. Do you think it’ll work? (Photo via Reddit user imatexasda) source

I have exhausted my knowledge about this subject. Usually, when someone hands me a beer I don’t ask how it was made, I just drink it.
White House Press Secretary Jay Carney • Responding to a reporter’s questions about the process and recipe used by the Obamas for the White House homebrew. Having become the Beltway’s most recent obsession, following confirmation of the homebrew’s existence earlier this month, Carney was apparently tasked with spilling the beans on the name (White House Honey Ale), taste (like honey), and varieties available (light and dark) for consumption by those in the White House. Clearly, he thought there were more important matters worth discussing. To be fair, while we did get an amusing quote, he was probably right. source (viafollow)

A blockbuster deal with a touch of lime: Mega-beer company Anheuser-Busch InBev SA is buying the half of fellow mega-beer company Grupo Modelo it doesn’t own, for a cool $20.1 billion — all in cash. The buy groups such brands as Corona and Modela with Budweiser and Beck’s. Expect the celebration to include a lot of alcohol. (photo by TAZphotos on Flickr; edit for misspelling)

Chancellor Merkel Gets a Beer Shower

thisisandres:

German Chancellor Angela Merkel gets doused in ice cold beer after an unemployed man a server leans a little too far forward.

Poor Frau Merkel. She’s still recovering from this traumatizing incident:

In which Germans shower their leaders with both praise and alcoholic beverages.

This is wrong in so many ways. It should have stayed in MKE. Sell-out.
