Know Your Enemy

30 Dec

In an effort to appeal to more markets Anheuser-Busch has always adapted what they are selling to fit current trends.  This idea did not falter when American Craft Brewing took off, and as a result there are many beers out there that one would not think to be owned by this corporate giant.  This idea was pointed out in the documentary, Beer Wars, and the information is widely available on the internet.  The problem is that many people to not consider this to be a possibility.  Anheuser-Busch does not want most of their consumers to know all of the beers that they distribute: it makes them more money.

Below is a list of some of the beers that Anheuser-Busch makes that is not common knowledge: (I already consider it common knowledge that they own Michelob, so none of those beers will be listed.)

Bare Knuckle Stout

Beach Bum Blonde Ale

Demon’s Hopyard IPA

Jack’s Pumpkin Spice Ale

Mule Kick Oatmeal Stout

Any beer made by O’douls

Organic Wild Hop Lager

Pacific Ridge Pale Ale

Red Fox Amber Ale

Shocktop Belgian White

Winter’s Bourbon Caske Ale

Leffe Blonde Abbey Ale

Hoegaarden White Ale

Widmer Brothers

Tomahawk Amber Ale

Wilde Blue Blueberry Lager

Stella Artois

Rolling Rock

Red Hook


This is not intended to be a complete list of the beers which Anheuser-Busch produces, it only meant to increase awareness for the consumer.  Do not be fooled into thinking that you are supporting a local or craft brewery when purchasing these beers, for you are in actuality supporting a corporate giant who would love nothing more than to snuff out the competition.

    Hoegaarden is still one of my favorites, but it saddens me each time you remind me it’s made by Annheuser-Busch.
