Not only are the sales of Bud Light in a death spiral, but sales of Anheuser-Busch’s other brands have also taken a hit.
“Nationwide retail sales of Bud Light were down 23.4% versus a year ago in the week of April 29 — worse than the 21.4% decline it suffered a week earlier,” reports the New York Post.
That’s bad enough for Transheuser-Busch because it shows the Bud Light boycott is accelerating. But it now appears people are waking up to the fact that the makers of Bud Light also brew other brands. The Post reports that those brands are also dropping in sales.
“The company’s flagship Budweiser brand took an 11.4% sales hit for the week ended April 29.” On top of that, sales of “Bud’s Michelob Ultra brand — the third-biggest-selling in the US behind No. 1 Bud Light and No. 2 Modelo Especial — were down 4.4%[.]”
Transheuser-Busch’s Natural Light brand is down 5.2 percent, and Busch Light drooped 1.8 percent.
