"the price-conscious are trading down"

To what?

I will admit that I enjoy the occasional budweiser. I'd certainly drink a free one.

I like this quote . . Brand consultant Robert Passikoff has serious doubts about Budweiser's effort. "They're in trouble because they don't know how to talk to consumers," he says. "They no longer know how to create an emotional bond."

 . . . Or adapt to changing consumer demands.

I could see Bud turning the crown over to Bud Select.

Did I read that correctly? It actually said people are passing up Bud for light beers? Don't they call that water?  :-\

"Treat" might be a poor choice of words.  ;D

I always gave my classes bud too - as an example of acetaldehyde :)
