Anheuser-Busch Accused of Watering Down Beer
Anheuser-Busch says the claims that the company waters down its beers are “completely false.”
A class action lawsuit filed in California accuses the Budweiser maker of short-changing consumers on alcohol content to increase profits.
The suit seeks unspecified damages but says the controversy is worth more than $5 million.
Similar lawsuits were filed in several other states.
Anheuser-Busch calls the lawsuits “groundless” and says its beers fully comply “with all alcohol labeling laws.”
