Genetically Modified Budweiser

It seems that Budweiser uses genetically engineered rice in some of their beer. Here is a press release from Greenpeace. And here is a post about the GE beer on Brookstone Beer Bulletin, which seems to be a frequently updated website/blog with information about craft beers, especially in Norther California. On the Greenpeace website there is further discussion of the contamination, including an excellent spoof of a Budweiser TV commercial.

Doreen and her Greenpeace colleagues have been working on this for a while. Now that this information is public, it will be interesting to see how Bud responds.
