A satirical piece on beer brand Budweiser by The Hans India has made to the top Twitter trends. In the news report, allegedly, a man called Walter Powell (alias) has revealed that he has been peeing in the beer tanks for the past 12 years.
The news report further mentioned that Powell had worked for the Budweiser Brewery Experience (Fort Collins, CO). Powell has maintained that the production of beer at other facilities is untouched and devoid of any urine.
He said that this seems like Russian roulette. Sometimes, when he is with his friends, and they ask for Budweiser beer, he blushes to himself and says, poor guys.
But before we move forward, we should make it clear right here that the news lacks credibility. The claim can only be sourced from a website called Foolish Humor which produces fake news for comedy. This website is similar to the Faking News in India.
Some Twitter-users fell for this and made hilarious memes.
No clarification has been received from the brewery yet. But we can safely assume this news to be untrue and something which has been blown out of proportion as some website did not do a fact check before publishing.
Budweiser was developed by German-born Adolphus Busch and his friend Carl Conrad in 1876. They were inspired by after a trip to Bohemia. They produced Budweiser in their own brewery at St. Louis, Missouri. Now, Budweiser has become one of the largest selling beer brands in the United States.
