What was FIFA smoking when they decided to make Anheuser-Busch the sole supplier of beer at the World Cup? (HT Steve Gilliard) Take the most American of beers (but nowhere near the BEST beer), considered swill by most of the host country, and make it the only beer available during the World Cup. Genius. Nice to see Anheuser-Busch caught a clue that this wasn’t going to win them friends and allowed some German beer to be sold – Bitburger Pils. You know the USA team is going to be under enough pressure – do we really need to piss off every World Cup beer drinker even more for forcing Bud into their hands. Smart move AB. As if America hasn’t ticked off the rest of the world enough already!
