The beer wars make it to the mainstream news bigtime

Remember the beer wars? Our own Caffeinegoddes was keeping a tabs on them last year posting first Catfight between Miller and AB in May, which promptly got Farked , then she followed up in September with Bud, Miller are at it again and Taste and Flavor vs. Freshness, and by December with Battle of the Brews.

Now the beer giants are battling it out in mainstream press - Google news lists 37 articles about this brewing fight. Here's a few examples:
Rivals Miller, Anheuser-Busch getting frothy with TV spots, USA Today, Ad rivalry coming to a head News-Leader.com, Battle between rival beermakers getting nasty MSNBC, Beer makers called for unsportsmanlike conduct Boston Globe, Beer rivals' TV ads run afoul The Register-Guard, Brewing beer battle overflows Marin Independent-Journal, Ad battle brews South Bend, Beer brawl comes to a head over Bud and Miller TV ads Buffalo News

I'll stop there before all the puns go flat.
