A George Strait concert may not be the greatest venue for selling Bud Light.
A video of a concession stand at the country artist’s concert has led some to conclude that the conservative beer boycott remains effective.
Other beverages, such as White Claw and Coors Light, appear to be depleted by consumer purchases, whereas Bud Light appears unaffected.
Evan Kilgore, a conservative author and commentator, documented concertgoers’ apparent lack of interest in the alcohol.
In the Saturday video from the Buckeye Country Superfest in Columbus, Ohio, where George Strait was the featured performer, a concertgoer queries who would consume a beer associated with transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney.
Mulvaney is primarily recognized for his “Days of Girlhood” TikTok series, in which he brags about his alleged gender transition.
One woman can be heard asking, “Who drinks this s***?” in the video, which had more than 128,000 views by Tuesday morning Eastern Daylight Time.

In the video, a customer takes a Michelob Ultra can from a cooler, possibly oblivious that Anheuser-Busch, the parent company of Bud Light, also owns Michelob Ultra.
But they’re drinking Michelob ultra? They’re still giving money to Anheuser-Busch but they think they’re doing something to the makers of Bud Light?

Strait is widely regarded as one of the most influential country music artists of all time, having distinguished himself in a genre favored by conservatives and patriots.
Other country artists, including John Rich and Riley Green, have taken highly publicized stances against the brand.
Anheuser-Busch’s decision to partner with Mulvaney has also been detrimental at the grassroots level.
Some retailers have resorted to selling Bud Light at dirt-cheap prices as a testament to the decline of the once-iconic brand. CONTINUE READING…
