    Is this the Busch that beat up the kid in the stairwell after his son's basketball game or the one that got busted trying to fly is helicopter drunk loaded with all the pills and guns?

    EDIT: Kid puncher apparently. August Busch IV was the helicopter pilot:stuck_out_tongue:

    I assumed they were douchebags based on the nature of that sort of reality TV, but that picture still managed to far surpass my expectations...

    "The King is dead. Long live..." --- nah, that's good enough.

    Or the one who bit off a guy's ear in a fight?
    Or the one whose girl friend OD'ed in his bed?
    Or the one who left the scene of an accident with a dead woman in his wrecked car, along with his fake ID?

    IIRC "Billy" Busch never worked for the brewery.

    Even responding makes me a bit ill. But this group of "lucky" spermites lick the underbelly of our culture in a particularly scuzzy way: Jersey Shore has more class.

    Billy Bush of Kraftig fame....There was a time when my tv was constantly on MTV, then reality tv came about. I don't think I have watched anything on MTV in the past 20 years. That show looks like something I would steer a wide berth around

    The helicopter Busch and the girlfriend OD Busch are one in the same :dizzy_face:

    I feel like if the show had something to do with beer it might be at least interesting, but I'm guessing it won't.

    If they were going to center the show around the company and the beer, I'd really be interested in this. Macro lager or not, any beer knowledge is good knowledge to me; however, couldn't agree with the OP more. I garuntee my out of touch parents will see a commerical for this and recommend it to me.

    I want to know how much Natty Light is consumed at family functions and who writes all the Nattyisms?

    After watching an episode of this I'd probably need to rub hand sanitizer all over my tv screen, and possibly my eyeballs.

    Looks like the Busch family are the human equivalent of the terrible beer they make. Garbage people brewing garbage beer.

    Do they still own stake in the company? Too lazy to look into it.
