Fake Budweiser Beer? In China Anything Can Happen.


After years of drinking beer, (and getting the token beer belly) it’s pretty easy to differentiate between beers. Fosters is bitter, Tuborg is sweet etc. However, how easy is it to tell if the beer you’re drinking is legit, especially when it comes in the right can? That’s exactly what happened when a video emerged of Chinese workers pouring fake Budweiser beer into Budweiser beer cans.

The alarming video features footage of a room full of workers dipping punctured Budweiser cans into what is beer (we assume). Later in the video, the fraudulent beers are pictured being resealed in what looks like an underground factory, and then in a later clip, the cans are packaged and ready to be shipped. At the end of the video, agents of China’s Trade and Industry Bureau are seen arriving at the facility for an inspection.he Shanghaiist, a news website that first broke the story, reported that the counterfeit operation was capable of producing up to 600,000 crates of fake Budweiser beer every month, and likely did produce at that volume, while distributing the fake beer to bars, restaurants, and clubs all over the area.

Anheuser-Busch said in their statement that this was indeed a counterfeit operation in China and that they are working with the Chinese authorities to get it shut down as soon as possible. Let’s hope it’s sooner rather than later!
