Bud Light is having a Super Bowl Twitter beef with National Corn

Bud Light's parent company quickly tried to make amends. Bud Light used the "brewed with no corn syrup" tag on its ads for the night. After the Bud Lights ads aired, the group posted a tweet in response to the ad: "America's corn farmers are disappointed with you. thanks Miller Lite and Coors Lite for supporting our industry".

Once the king and his cohorts arrive at the castle where Miller Light is brewed, they learn the syrup was actually destined for the makers of another beer, Coors Light. "For Bud Light, that meant letting us do something that only Game of Thrones can do-a public execution of their main character", says Paull. "We're not standing with you", he said, a somber look on his face.

As chance would have it, that's what happened.

"Bottom line: Many respectable brewers use a 'syrup, ' which is just a liquified form of starch for yeast to feast on more quickly, whether it be sugar itself, corn, rice, donuts, whatever". But the recipe decision, touted in a 2019 Super Bowl commercial, triggered quite the backlash from beer competitors and corn farmers.

Corn-based sweeteners, especially high-fructose corn syrup, have been vilified in recent years as possible contributors to the obesity and diabetes epidemics. "When it comes to an issue like this we all unite like one", he added.

Trump suggests he could declare emergency
President Donald Trump took aim at some usual suspects in his Super Bowl pre-game interview with CBS News, tearing into Rep. It's national emergency, it's other things and you know there have been plenty national emergencies called.

A better question to ask: Does anyone who drinks light beer care whether it's made with corn syrup or not?

Building on the latest chapter of the medieval "Dilly Dilly" series, Bud Light's agency, Wieden+Kennedy, collaborated with HBO and Droga5 on the 60-second spot, "Joust". The statement says it's up to consumers "to decide what beer is right for them". "It's really not true".

And Sam Adams tweeted "No corn syrup AND no rice".

"You could use doughnuts if you wanted", Schumacher said. "But in terms of caloric value, if people are anxious about sugars left behind in the beer, those are all going to be eaten up in the brewing process".
