Wish I could say that I’m boycotting Bud, but I don’t drink the swill.

The Anheuser- Busch family bought land up in this area some yeas ago. Huge tree hugging family.

I hope the word gets out on this. I don’t drink AB products anyway, but I hope this impacts their sales dramatically.

That’s fine with me...Budweiser is a fart and belch producer, and pisswater beer, anyway.

“Bud” is the nadir of bottled beer. I never drank camel urine, but my guess is it tastes like “Bud”. The only thing worse is Coor’s which proably tastes like wagered down camel urine.

I HOPE every target-shooting, hunting, second Amendment supporter switches to a real man’s drink like Guiness or a local micro-brewery.

i dunno. we buy things from companies who had ceo’s never being a member of NRA in the first place.

however, by making it a political statement by quitting NRA... that will look bad.

and some people will quit drinking their stuff and treat them worst in comparison to beer companies whose ceo were never a member.

Earth to Mr. Busch: why would you be a member of the NRA if you didn’t agree with the organization’s goals?

Drinking your horse pi** beer must have killed too many of your brain cells.

Well, since we are in a culture war to the death, hit him where it hurts - boycott Budweiser. Sometimes boycotts do have an effect; look at JC Pennys.

Agree completly. This could sink Budweiser. The only thing I like about Bud are some of the commercials.

So what did this moron think the mission of the NRA was when he sought membership?

Busch sold out to InBev (Belgian) so I don't think boycotting Bud would mean a thing to this clown now.

Right. When people could drink legally again, the organized crime infrastructure was still in place. They were not going to go broke just because alcohol was legal again. NOT!

They just found OTHER things to traffic!

Some people NEVER learn anything.

Meanwhile Dick Yuengling would tell gun grabbers to piss up a rope. You don’t own anything anymore Adolphus. Remember? You sold out to InBev.

When I go out to eat in St. Louis, I usually ask for a Schlafly Pale Ale, saying I like to support local breweries. When they suggest an A-B inBev product, my response is that’s not a local beer.
