Anheuser-Busch finally punished for selling to the dirty Belgians

Posted on Fri Jan 23 2009


The Belgweiser Rebellion is upon us.
  The GuyProps Network has been rallying Facebook fans (102 strong) and the press (BrandFreak) to take part in a "Super Beer Boycott." The organizers are taking aim at Anheuser-Busch, calling the company un-American in light of its acquisition by Belgium brewer InBev.
  Ground zero for the revolution is the Belgweiser Rebellion site, where we are treated to some terrible singing and a moderate amount of cleavage. The group's manifesto lashes out against price increases, U.S. layoffs and the punishment A-B employees have been forced to endure (namely, InBev allegedly eliminating a perk of two free cases of beer per month). Another source of outrage: No more free beer tastings at Busch Gardens and Sea World.
  "Shamu just isn't the same without a free beer!" the group said in its official statement.
