Gay Beer (my words, not theirs)

Appeal to 20-somethings? What the heck are they talking about? I'm 20-something and this doesn't appeal to me in the least bit:

Anheuser-Busch trumpeted itself as the first major brewer to infuse beer with caffeine, ginseng and guarana, the latter a caffeine-bearing herb used in a popular Brazilian soft drink.

Wow - they trumpeted themselves about their new gay-beer. Too bad their trumpeting didn't do their stocks any good.

Anheuser-Busch shares fell 28 cents to close at $50.20 on Monday on the New York Stock Exchange.

Back to the drawing board, AB. I have a suggestion - maybe start by making a beer that actually taste like beer and not water. Just sayin' s'all.
