Corn farmers disappointed over Bud Light Super Bowl ad

Bud Light took on the corn industry on Sunday by boasting in an ad that it does not brew its beer with corn syrup. The National Corn Growers Association tweeted that America’s corn farmers were ’disappointed’ in Bud Light, and thanked rival brands Miller Lite and Coors Light. Anheuser-Busch, the maker of Bud Light, responded later that it ’fully supports corn growers’.

Whatever. Corn syrup is fucking terrible for you... And that is an understatement.

Chemically corn syrup is no different from beet sugar, cane sugar or any other sugar. The problem is the amount of sugar we consume from processed foods. When fat became the bad food (which it's not, we need fat in our diet) food processors had to find a way to make processed food taste good (fat is flavorful) a cheap source of sugar was found in corn syrup. The use of corn sugar in brewing American Lager is not the biggest sin (I have used corn dextrose in homebrews), the biggest sin is the use of rice, which is used to cut the cost of brewing, mostly used by the big three for their terrible, overpriced beer. If you want to make an Asian style beer the use of Rice is fine, and there are some very fine Rice style beers to be found. But when brewing a beer based on Europian styles, which the American Lager is, rice should only be served in the cafeteria and nowhere near the vats.

Corn syrup is the tobacco of the 2020’s it seems.

As if beer without corn syrup is healthy for you. Inebriation and beer bellies are not hallmarks of a champion, in sports or life. ;)

Mass produced American Lite Beer is disgusting anyway, should be using Malted Barley.
