Anheuser-Busch has finally disclosed the ingredients in Budweiser and Bud Light. After all that time keeping them a secret, they are actually pretty boring, wholesome ingredients.
After the website foodbabe.com started a petition asking brewers to list their ingredients, gaining 40,000 signatures in 24 hours, Anheuser-Busch decided to hand over the list. Available on tapintoyourbeer.com, the ingredients in both beers are very simple: water, barley malt, rice, yeast, and hops.
FoodBabe now hopes to get the ingredients for MillerCoors next, saying, "We know more about what's in a bottle of Windex and Coca-Cola than we do about one of the world's most popular drinks –beer." Anheuser-Busch will list ingredients for their other popular beers, including Beck's, Busch, and Michelob, in the near future.
While it's nice to get the ingredients list, don't expect the recipe anytime soon.
