logo_abinbev.jpgI don’t know why, but of all of the things that InBev has done with Anheuser-Busch since purchasing the company back in November, this one seems to have stuck in my craw:

Busch Entertainment Corp. told employees this morning that free samples of Busch’s premier product no longer will be provided to theme park patrons.

Visitors of legal age will be able to buy beer at hospitality centers that will be converted into new facilities beginning this month, Busch Entertainment says in an e-mail response to questions about the new policy.

Really?  Charging for what account as nothing more than samples? What’s next, charging for the samples at the end of the brewery tour?  Don’t get me wrong, I know nothing in life is free and that it will probably keep down on drunk jagoffs at what are supposed to be family friendly locations, but this just seems like a big “screw you” to AB-InBev’s customers.
