Good To Know: How Fake Budweiser Beer Is Made In China

June 1, 2017

This is a short video of an underground fake Budweiser canning operation in Dongguan, China. They fill the cans by hand-dunking them in a plastic tub full of beer (at least I assume it's beer -- it could be anything). That looks and sounds delicious. Unfortunately, the operation was busted and now I may never know what it's like drinking knock-off Budweiser in China. *uncaps Sharpie, sadly crosses 'Go Blind After Drinking Bootleg Budweiser In China' off bucket list* I need to start living.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to hairless, who can't grow hair anymore on account of all the knock-off Coca-Cola he's drank. You do realize that was made with motor oil, right?

    The Chinese seem to have zero respect for anyone or anything other than a dollar. Patents, IP, safety, all of that seems to go out the window with alarming regularity. I've heard when things like the iPhone are introduced to China, there's already been knockoffs there for so long they think the real deal is the knock off. People are dicks.

    You just described capitalism.

  • captaindash

    I disagree. Capitalists LOVE patents and IP. Safety? Not as much, but the other two help them make better returns on their R&D. Capitalism is not a catch-all for anything bad companies do.

    Wait...those are coke cans. Wtf?

  • JimmyJam

    I mean, seems like standard operating procedure for Bud.

    Only step they apparently left out was how the "beer" tub gets refilled.

    SPOILER: It's people pissing into it.

  • MustacheHam

    Oh, and here I thought it was just dishwater.

    Anyone else think it's weird that the Chinese police officers don't tuck in their shirts?

  • Draco Basileus

    How else could they quickly stash bribes if their shirts were tucked in?

    I have a friend from Shenzhen who told me never accept any beverage that's already been opened while visiting China. This happens with soft-drinks and bottled water as well.

  • The_Wretched

    Same for India.

  • Bling Nye

    Already opened I get, but this is taking it to a whole 'nother level with the canning.

    I've heard the same regarding "unopened" water bottles and such, they basically just superglue the little contact points on the "security ring" to the lid so it seems like it was an unbroken seal.
