The world’s largest brewer is an “official sponsor” of the presidential debate on Tuesday at Hofstra University on Long Island in New York – and it has set up a “hospitality tent” near the media center, treating reporters to free food, beer and souvenir glasses.
Anheuser-Busch, which has been a sponsor of the presidential debates since 1996, had similar tents at the vice presidential debate last week and the first presidential debate earlier this month, Observer.com
The St. Louis-based company, now the largest subsidiary of the Belgium firm Anheuser-Busch InBev, is apparently serving its “small batch” brews – and bartenders told Observer.com that they were “busy” on Tuesday before the debate.
Anheuser-Busch, which could not be reached for comment by Observer.com, also has a Twitter feed for the hospitality tent.
“Nothing more American than great #debates and great beer (msg 4 21+ only),” read a posting from Tuesday evening, Observer.com reports.
