H.David Scarbro writes that in competition:

Dry Beer
Gold Bud Dry, Anheuser-Busch Inc, St. Louis, MO

I thought that they made Michelob Dry and not Bud Dry.

Also, since I live close to the Bud plant in Merrimack, NH we get something
called "Anheuser" which is a great Marzen beer. Not at all something you'd
expect from Anheuser-Busch. Was "Anheuser" entered in the competition?

Further, the fact that Bud, Miller, Coors, et. al. won medals in the American
pilsener categories should remind people that these beers are not the junk
everyone says they are. They are good examples of the style. It's just that
that's the only style available from the big brewers. Hence the rise of
micro- and homebrewing.

(Another surprise to me was that Little King's Cream Ale won a gold.)
