Anheuser-Busch beer garden opens today

Today a new beer garden opens at the Anheuser-Busch brewery in Soulard. Most St. Louisans are familiar with the Anheuser-Busch brewery tour, which draws around 350,000 people every year, and now those people have one final stop to make. The new 10,000 square foot, outdoor beer garden features a full menu, 17 beers on tap, and room for 300 people. There's also a daily Brewmasters tasting as well as photo ops available with the Budweiser Clydesdales. The beer garden is the first of its kind at AB-InBev's 12 breweries in the United States. And while the tour remains free of charge, including two free beers, A-B will charge for all food and drink at the beer garden.

AB InBev accused of watering down beer

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Beer lovers across the country have filed $5 million class-action lawsuits accusing Anheuser-Busch InBev of watering down its Budweiser, Michelob and other brands.

The suits were filed in Pennsylvania, California and other states on behalf of consumers allegedly cheated out of the beverage's stated alcohol content. Budweiser and Michelob each boast being 5 percent alcohol, while some "light" versions are said to be just over 4 percent.

Lead lawyer Josh Boxer of San Francisco said Tuesday the suits are based on information from former employees at some of the company's 13 U.S. breweries. Boxer said water is added just before bottling, and cuts the stated alcohol content by 3 to 8 percent.   Robert Mills is one of the plaintiff's class action attorney. "A consumer should be able to go into a store and buy a can of beer, whatever brand they like and if it says on the label that it's six percent alcohol, it should be six percent."

 

The multinational Anheuser-Busch InBev calls the claims groundless, and says its beers fully comply with labeling
