As an additional part of the settlement Anheuser-Busch agrees to make the phrase "Brewed in USA" or "Product of the USA" more visible on each bottle.
"We reached a compromise in the Beck's labeling case. We believe our labeling, packaging and marketing of Beck's have always been truthful, transparent and in compliance with all legal requirements. A-B brews Beck's to the highest-quality standards, and is proud to employ the finest American brewmasters to produce Beck's for the U.S. market," said Jorn Socquet, Vice President, Marketing at Anheuser-Busch, in a statement.
This isn't the first time Anheuser-Busch has faces charges over deceptive packages regarding one of its import brands. The brewer settled a similar claim in January regarding its Japanese brand Kirin, which is brewed by Anheuser-Busch in Los Angeles and Williamsburg, Virginia.
