Suit says Anheuser-Busch waters down its beers

Proposed class action claims company lowers alcohol content of its beverages to boost profits

Cheers to another alcohol-related lawsuit.

Last Friday, two consumers filed a proposed class action in California accusing Anheuser-Busch InBev—the world’s largest brewer—of watering down its beers in order to boost profits. The suit claims the company misleads consumers by mislabeling the alcohol content of its Budweiser, Michelob, Michelob Ultra, Hurricane High Gravity Lager, King Cobra, Busch Ice, Natural Ice, Bud Ice, Bud Light Platinum and Bud Light Lime brands.
