Did You Know Budweiser Beer is made from Rice?

Neither did we. Though the brothers prefer the stronger malt liquors (more bang for the buck), you will not find a better tasting domestic beer than Bud. Smooth. Yet in reading about the recent purchase of Anheuser-Busch by Belgium firm InBev in The Wall Street Journal, it was noted that, "unlike most beers, Anheuser-Busch uses rice in its brewing process."

Now that does not mean that hops and barley are not used, but we don't really know all the ingredients in A-B products. We do know that InBev will not change those ingredients. A-B is based in St. Louis, Missouri and A-B has two large rice mills in Jonesboro, Arkansas (the other is in California) and most of the rice grown within a 90-mile radius around Jonesboro ends up in Budweiser beer. Seventeen percent of the nation's rice goes to beer producting.
