Connections: Budweiser Attacking Craft Beer


We talk about Budweiser's assault on craft beer in its Super Bowl ad, which has sparked quite a backlash. We talk about if the ad had an impact, and why they took the direction they did in the ad with our panel:

  • John Urlaub, owner of Rohrbach’s
  • Joe McBain, owner of Tap & Mallet, Rochester tap room
  • Dave Schlosser, owner of Naked Dove Brewing
