Fact Check: Did Budweiser employee urinate in beer tank for 12 years? Here's the truth

According to the report, an employee named Walter Powell (alias) revealed that he has been peeing inside the beer tanks for the last 12 years.

It further mentioned that Powell worked Budweiser Brewery Experience (Fort Collins, CO), and maintained that the production at other facilities remains untouched and free of urine. “It is like a Russian roulette, sometimes when I am with my friends, and they ask for Budweiser, I blush and say to myself, poor guys”.

The news report claimed that Walter only worked in Budweiser Brewery Experience, located in Fort Collins, Colorado. Whereas, the Budweiser beer manufactured in other cities are free of piss. This news came as a shocker for the fans of the American brand as 75% of Budweiser beer is made in Fort Collins’ Budweiser Brewery Experience. Therefore, most of the Budweiser lovers would have consumed the same beer that Walter would have talked about.

Fact Check:

The only source for the claim is a website called Foolish Humour that churns out fake news for comedy purpose. Their website disclaimer reads, “This website is a humorous page whose sole purpose is entertainment. The content of Foolish Humor is fiction and does not correspond to reality.”

This piece of satire was later redrafted and published by the other websites. So the news of Budweiser employee peeing into beer tanks is FALSE.
