The Budweiser Story

(This is allegedly a true story, not an endorsement
for either Budweiser or any other “adult beverage”)

How Budweiser Handled Those Who Laughed at
Those Who Died on the 11th of September 2001

This event allegedly occurred in a little town north of Bakersfield, California. (If this isn’t true, it certainly should be!)

On the afternoon of September 11th, 2001, a Budweiser employee was making a delivery to a convenience store in the California town of McFarland.

He had just heard of the tragedy that had occurred in New York, Pennsylvania, and Washington when he entered the business to find the two Arab owners whooping, shouting, and dancing around to show their approval and support of this treacherous attack.

The Budweiser employee went to his truck, called his boss and told him of the very upsetting event! He didn't feel he could be in that store with those horrible people.

His boss asked him, “Do you think you could go in there long enough to pull every product and item our company sells there? We'll never deliver to them again.”

The driver walked in, proceeded to pull every single product his beverage company provided, told them never to bother to call for a delivery again, and left with an incredible grin on his face.

And Now, the Rest of the Story

Now, Budweiser happens to be the beer of choice for that Kern County community. It seems that the Bud driver and the Pepsi man are neighbors. Bud called Pepsi and told him what had happened.

Pepsi called his boss, who told him to pull all Pepsi products as well! That would include Frito Lay, and all the rest of the Pepsi family of products.

The word spread through the town like wildfire and all the vendors who supplied that store followed suit! At last report, the store was closed indefinitely.

A beautiful example of American capitalist ingenuity at work!

Todah Raba (Thanks Muchly) to my friend Bruce Nichols for passing this on to me.
Even if it turns out to be just an “Urban Legend” it’s still a great story!
