i saw this on cnn toay: Makers of Budweiser sued over watery beer i new there was something funny with my budweiser lately. it seems that they are watering down the beer. i believe that some think that they distill the beer to 7% alcohol and then add water to get down to 5%. but i think the lawsuit is suggesting that they are even going below that percentage as well......lame!!!!! luckily i don't not drink it all that often as i tend to drink newcastle majority of the time.
