AB InBev Fends Off Accusations of Horse Piss-Tainted Beer

CLYDESDALES ARE SUSPECTED OF NOT ONLY BEING A MAJOR PART OF BUDWEISER'S AD CAMPAIGN, BUT OF THEIR BREWING PROCESS AS WELL.


On the heels of a horse meat scandal rocking Europe, Anheuser-Busch InBev, the world’s largest brewer, now faces accusations that their beer contains the urine of horses. Distributors and consumers in all fifty states have complained that the company’s brands — including Budweiser, Michelob, Busch and Natural — have for years contained the distinct flavor of horse piss. “There’s no other way to explain the taste of this beer,” said beer drinker Samuel Greenberg, who said he purchases a six-pack of Bud Light on a weekly basis. “It’s pretty gross, but I’m only drinking it to get drunk.” In a statement released last week, Peter Kraemer, vice president of brewing and supply, called the accusations “groundless.” He continued: “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." The company, he says, “follows the same family recipe used by five generations of brewmasters, and has never included any horse piss. It just tastes that way.”
