Bud Light is having a Super Bowl Twitter beef with National Corn

Was Sunday night's Game of Thrones Super Bowl ad a stealthy spoiler for the way the whole series will end?

Stuart Sanderson, a corn farmer in Limestone County, told us he won't be drinking Bud Light anymore because of the commercial.

The other beers' marketing departments also didn't miss a chance to get their name out there and tout their own "high-quality, great-tasting beers". "Corn is a homegrown renewable crop that feeds and fuels my family and yours", he added, before demanding Anheuser-Busch, "Please leave us out of the beer wars".

Ross, who farms near Underwood in western Iowa, said he was disappointed in what he called a misleading commercial. "This effort is to provide consumers transparency and elevate the beer category". 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.

Anheuser-Busch confirmed they are in contact with the group and Caskey says his team is willing to hear them out.

MillerCoors also countered that Miller Lite has fewer calories and carbs than Bud Lite. Corn syrup and rice act as sweeteners for beer.

"Bottom line: Many respectable brewers use a 'syrup, ' which is just a liquified form of starch for yeast to feast on more quickly, whether it be sugar itself, corn, rice, donuts, whatever".

The "Special Delivery" SB LIII ad (below) continues the brand's medieval kingdom premise, minus the famed "Dilly Dilly" chant, and uses the construct of a misdelivered barrel of corn syrup to drive home the point that - unlike Bud Light - competitors Miller Lite and Coors Light use corn syrup.

Corn farmers have taken a beating in the previous year.

Harry Schuhmacher, editor of Beer Business Daily, said the fermenting aids used to make lighter beers might result in slight differences in taste, but they generally serve the same objective. "Maybe I am getting used to my occupation and products being smeared for the sake of a marketing ploy".
