The latest chess move in the ever-escalating Bud Light/Miller Lite war has taken a dark turn, as Anheuser-Busch released a new advertisement over the weekend accusing MillerCoors of brewing its signature lager with people as a featured ingredient.
The battle between Miller Lite and Bud Light rages on, with the former releasing a new advertisement and the latter immediately coming back with a retort. Yes, the Bud Knight and corn syrup is involved.
The great feud of our time - yes, I am of course speaking of the ongoing war between MillerCoors and Bud Light - may have started with a commercial set in Medieval times but it's now taking a step into the 21st century.
I've always been a Miller drinker - partly because I'm a born and raised Milwaukeean and partly because my last name is literally pronounced "Miller." But today we put that to the test.
As long as we have colleges, we will have college kids. With that in mind, AB-InBev announced plans to release a new, high-gravity, flavored malt beverage called Natty Rush to compete with Four Loko and MillerCoors' Steel Reserve Alloy Series. Frat bros, rejoice!
If you are broke, frugal or just a sucker for gratuitous booze, head to Rosie's Waterworks, 1111 N. Water St., on your birthday and enjoy an evening of drinking alcohol for the low, low price of absolutely free.

And maybe because we've had it on so many occasions, it makes perfect sense that we prefer Miller beers to those of to its biggest competitor, Budweiser. But we had to be sure. So, we put ourselves -- and Miller and Bud brews -- to the test.
So, President Obama is having beers with Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates and Sgt. James Crowley of the Cambridge, Mass., police department tonight, in an attempt to ease racial tensions he riled up with a somewhat irresponsible comment at press conference last week. That's kind of cool.
