Anheuser-Busch Statement on Beck’s Class Action Lawsuit

For attribution to an A-B Spokesperson

This is a frivolous lawsuit with no basis.

Beck’s beer is meticulously loyal to its German origins – and to the Reinheitsgebot (German Purity Law) – in the many (15) countries where it is brewed, and has been for years. We are proud to employ our American brewmasters to brew it according to the exacting German standards where it was created.

Beck’s drinkers welcome its brewing in the United States, since our brewmasters carefully maintain the brand’s quality, taste and German recipe. This quality always comes first, and the label notes that it is a product of the USA. The Reinheitsgebot refers to beers made with only four ingredients: barley, hops, yeast and water, and Beck’s adheres firmly to these standards. We use the same recipe, high-quality ingredients and brewing process around the world, and brew it under the strict supervision of Beck’s brewmasters.

Nothing is more important to us than the quality of our beers and the ingredients that go into them.
