Trouble brewing: MillerCoors sues Bud Light over ongoing corn-syrup controversy
Fox News, by Faith Mangan, Alicia Acuna
A beer battle that started brewing around the Super Bowl earlier this year has gone into overtime.
It started with a number of high-profile ads ... Bud Light called out MillerCoors products for using corn syrup. Bud Light then put up billboards in the heart of Coors country, along a busy highway running from where Coors brews in Golden, Colorado leading into Denver.
The billboards, which are blue with giant white letters, read in succession, “Coors Light uses corn syrup.”, “Bud Light: We Don’t”, and “100% less corn syrup than Coors Light.”
On Thursday, MillerCoors filed a lawsuit against Anheuser-Busch, which owns Bud Light, for the ads, calling them "false" and "misleading."
