Budweiser Consumer Class Action Lawsuits Challenge Alcohol Content By Tod Aronovitz | 03/07/13 | 0 Comment

Budweiser, the “king of beers,” is one of 10 Anheuser-Busch products being targeted in new consumer class action lawsuits alleging that the company misrepresents the brew’s alcohol content.

Bud Ice, Bud Light Platinum, Michelob, Michelob Ultra, Hurricane High Gravity Lager, King Cobra, Busch Ice, Natural Ice and Bud Light Lime are other Anheuser-Busch beers named in the litigation.

Budweiser consumer class action lawsuits seeking a minimum of $5 million in damages have been filed in California, Colorado, Ohio, Missouri, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Texas.

One complaint filed in federal court alleges that Anheuser-Busch adds extra water to its finished products to produce malt beverages with significantly less alcohol content than displayed on its labels. The actions allegedly violate state statutes on consumer protection.

Former Anheuser-Busch brewery employees reportedly provided insider views on the production and testing methods used to make Budweiser and Michelob, and other beers in the product line.

“The claims against Anheuser-Busch are completely false, and these lawsuits are groundless,” claims Peter Kraemer, Vice President of Brewing and Supply at Anheuser-Busch. “Our beers are in full compliance with all alcohol labeling laws.”
