    This beer has been my go-to many times. Dang Becks!

  51. mike says:

    So Has anyone received a rebate? I drink only German Beer. Always Becks, St Pauli Girl, Spaten, Dab or Bitburger. Becks is no longer an option except when only domestic beer to choose from. However, since I have, to date, never received the small rebate that was promised my mindset has changed. I will no longer buy Becks. Not sending that tiny rebate has cost them far, far more than the $12 they were supposed to send. For me it’s a matter of the point that they haven’t had the decency to do what the Court ordered them to do (at least not in my case).
    Anyway, just felt like venting, Hope you all get the $ you were promised. As far as myself I am going to stick to St Pauli Girl. Thanks Becks!!! You’ve made choosing which beer to buy a little easier.

  52. kelly says:

    did anyone get a refund? I never heard from them after I signed up?

  53. Steven Gianquinto says:

    When Beck’s was actually German it was imported from Bremen and was my absolute favorite. St Pauli Girl was brewed by Beck’s and was the little brother…not quite as good but it is the only beer brewed by Beck’s sold in America….I thought something was awry when the Beck’s price was so low???
    Thanks Budweiser for ruining my lifetime favorite bier!
    I want a REFUND, not a small piece of this settlement which I knew nothing of until NOW!
    This lawsuit does not even exist “anymore”
