Joose Joins the Four Loko Mix

JooseWI guess we shouldn’t be surprised to see new label approvals for yet another Four-Loko-style beverage.  What may surprise you is that this one comes to us courtesy of United Brands and is “brewed” at our own Anheuser-Busch Latrobe, PA plant.  This is of course the Watermelon flavor but they also received approval for 7 other labels in Nov alone.

  1. Joose has been around for quite a while. Nasty stuff...unless you want to get really wasted and stay awake enough to remember your embarrassing behavior that follows.

  2. Just to clarify, the latrobe, PA plant is NOT owned by anhueser-busch. They bought the rolling rock label but NOT the plant. City brewing of la crosse, wis, owns the plant and has preserved the jobs and heritage, NO thanks to A-B.

    But they've actually changed a few in the last weeks from MAX BEVERAGE in Lacrosse WI...I suspect to start the move to drop out the caffeine.
