What still is America’s beer, Budweiser has stirred up some controversy and may have landed them on boycott watch. This year’s big game attracted a multitude of commercials tacking nationwide issues. “Born The Hard Way”, Budweiser’s ad, shows the founder of Budweiser on his journey to St Louis, Missouri from Germany. Take a look.

 

William Kelly, owner of Citizen Kelly’s Irish Ale, is accusing Budweiser’s ad of being ‘Politically charged”. “Budweiser stepped in it big time when it inserted the immigration debate into its 60-second Super Bowl commercial, ‘Born the Hard Way,’ ” Mr. Kelly said in a press release. “The spot reveals a dramatized — and apparently fabricated — account of co-founder Adolphus Busch’s journey to America.” As soon as the ad aired a new hashtag was created in support of boycotting Budweiser. Kelly suggest different beers that American’s can drink, Yuenhling, MillerCoors and other beers that openly supported the opposing opinion on immigration…. *cough cough* Donald Trump.
