Beer lovers on Thursday woke up to a piece of shocking news about the claim of a Budweiser employee of urinating into beer tanks for the last 12 years. The news was trending on Twitter and netizens started sharing memes and jokes. The news surfaced on the internet after an online news portal published an article quoting a Budweiser employee named Walter Powell (name changed), who claimed that he had been peeing inside the beer tanks for the last 12 years. 

The news report claimed that Walter only worked in Budweiser Brewery Experience, located in Fort Collins, Colorado. This news came as a shocker for the fans of the American brand as 75% of Budweiser beer is made in Fort Collins' Budweiser Brewery Experience. Therefore, most of the Budweiser lovers would have consumed the same beer that Walter would have talked about.

The news report quoted Walter as saying, "Is like a Russian Roulette, sometimes when I am with my friends, and they ask for Budweiser, I blush and say to myself, poor guys."

Fact Check: 

The news report was originally published by Foolish Humor website as a satire piece on their website with a disclaimer that read, “This website is a humorous page whose sole purpose is entertainment. The content of Foolish Humor is fiction and does not correspond to reality.”

This piece of satire was later redrafted and published by the other websites. So the news of Budweiser employee peeing into beer tanks is FALSE.
