Stuart Sanderson, a corn farmer in Limestone County, told us he won't be drinking Bud Light anymore because of the commercial.

Whether angry corn farmers might be a big enough constituency for there to be any noticeable hit to Bud Light sales is unclear, but some corn farmers did take to Twitter to vent their anger. Nah, surely not - but by the time the curtain drops on the GOT finale, we may all be wishing for a beer knight in shining armor to pony up with a drink or two (or three) - if, that is, he can survive the trip.

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

"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". You know at first it's like if you're drinking beer, are you really anxious about that? "It's more of a processing aid and is 100% fermented out".

In the commercial, Anheuser Busch never explains why its Bud Light product is better because it doesn't use corn syrup, but it implies that's the case.

The advertisement drew criticism from corn farmers and others in the domestic beer industry. We were more interested in the big-budget ads that vehicle companies showed - and didn't show - this year.

"Whether they use corn syrup or even high-fructose corn syrup in the initial brewing, it's not going to be there at the end anyways". Further, because the sugars from the corn syrup are fermented out during the beer brewing process, no one is drinking straight sugar from a bottle of beer (unless otherwise added). Literal corn syrup. dumped into flavorless beer.

And Peter Marino, chief communications officer for MillerCoors, said the ad was like the pot calling the kettle black.

It claimed that many Anheuser-Busch products do.

"Anheuser-Busch fully supports corn growers and will continue to invest in the corn industry", said a spokesman, according to Fox News. The statement says it's up to consumers "to decide what beer is right for them".
