Corn Farmers Are Mad at Budweiser

Anthem open demo

Fans of both Game of Thrones and Bud Light have been commenting on the new ad, with most expressing how much they love the crossover.

The National Corn Growers Association reprimanded Bud Light.

"Miller Light uses corn syrup", replies a woman dressed in armor, standing beside the cask painted with the large, capitalized words, "CORN SYRUP".

In one medieval-themed ad, a Bud Light kingdom transports unwanted corn syrup to castles belonging to Miller Lite and Coors Light. Sanderson said there are more than 300,000 corn farmers in the United States, and he wants to set the record straight when it comes to corn syrup.

"Always intrigued at what commercials are going to come out, and when they progressed to we do not use corn syrup in our beer". Anheuser-Busch did reach out to the National Corn Growers Association in light of its criticism, in an effort to make amends, Neil Caskey, the group's chief communications officer, told CNN.

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

Bud Light is throwing some shade in their 2019 Super Bowl Commercial!

"Sugar is sugar. Corns syrup is safe".

Mark Bergkamp is a Kansas corn farmer.

Bud Light attacked rival brands in its Super Bowl ads, but it was the corn industry that felt stung. "When it comes to an issue like this we all unite like one", he added.

Much of the reaction on social media to the Bud Light ads suggests most people didn't know beer contained corn syrup at all. "Thanks @MillerLightand @CoorsLite for supporting our industry".

"I am not angry, just disappointed", said Brian Duncan, vice president of the Illinois Farm Bureau of the Bud Light ad. Corn syrup and rice act as sweeteners for beer.

Kirkpatrick concurs. Corn syrup in beer "should not be a health concern", she says.

"You could use doughnuts if you wanted", Schumacher said.
