Blog: Andy MortonWhat price the 'Budweiser bordello'?

Andy Morton | 12 January 2015

Branding comes in all shapes these days. But, is Budweiser the only beer brand to be associated with a brothel?

CNBC certainly thinks so and, in a report last week highlighted a Nevada bordello called Sheri's Ranch that features a “jacuzzi sex room ... dedicated entirely to the promotion of Anheuser-Busch products”.

CNBC points out it's not Anheuser-Busch, the US unit of Anheuser-Busch InBev, that directly sponsors the room, but distributor Nevada Beverages. However, a spokesperson for A-B freely acknowledged the tie-up to CNBC - after all, Sheri's is just another licensed account in a state where prostitution is legal.

Whether female drinkers agree is another matter entirely.
