Busch addressed the idea of pooling an investment group together to reclaim the once-iconic American beer brand. “I’d sure as heck try to pull some people together and buy that brand because I think we can make Bud Light great again.” The enduring, impromptu boycott against Bud Light and Anheuser-Busch has forced the company into a position where it’s selling eight of its smaller beer brands, according to Fox Business. Billy Busch also criticized Anheuser-Busch’s decision to market its beer with the aid of a leftist culture warrior considered toxic to conservative drinkers. Busch identified the company’s marketing staff as a problem, accusing them of losing touch with Bud Light drinkers. “I would have first said ‘watch out who the marketing people are that you hire’ — they’re these young, woke … who want to push political agendas down your throat coming out of these woke schools,” the Busch heir advised his former family company, according to Newsweek. “Coming out with an ad the beer drinker can’t relate to just doesn’t make any sense.” Busch contrasted his family’s business practices with Anheuser-Busch’s corporate practices. “You had to know who your audience was,” Busch said of one key to success in the company’s glory days.
