Flash: U.S. Beer Drinkers Slam $5M Suit On Brewer For Watered-Down Budweiser, Michelob, Others

U.S. beer drinkers have filed a $5 million class-action lawsuit accusing Budweiser parent Anheuser-Busch InBev (BE:ABI) (BUD) for watering down 10 of its beer brands, including Budweiser and Michelob, the law firm running the case said late Tuesday.

The complaint alleges that the beer manufacturer “employs some of the most sophisticated process control technology in the world to precisely monitor the alcohol content at the final stages of production, and then adds additional water to produce beers with significantly lower alcohol content than is represented on the product labels.”

Peter Kraemer, vice president of Brewing and Supply at Anheuser-Busch, said in a statement that the claims were completely false and that the lawsuit is groundless.

“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,” he said.
