|Free Bud Beer
Anheuser-Busch InBev will give away
thousands of free samples of Bud throughout
October but no one seems sure just where.
Drinkers have been calling distributors, posting
on Facebook and checking in with local bars to
learn when and where they can get the free
Bud.. Because of local and state laws that
regulate how people sample alcohol, the
brewer can't give specifics, but individual
locations can. Anheuser-Busch plans to give
away 500,000 free samples of 6 ounces to 12
ounces each — depending on local laws.
The samples are part of a new campaign to
woo younger drinkers and generate new
interest in the sagging brand.
Mystical Moon Beer
In Peruwelz, a town in southern Belgium,
Brewery Caulier has produced what they say is
the first beer ever brewed only by the light of a
full autumnal moon. The brewery claims the
full moon speeds up the fermentation process,
shortening it to 5 days from 7, and adds extra
punch to the beer without making it harsh.
They refused to say if a mystical incantation
was part of their brewing process.

top of a pole in front of a building that meant it was an ale
