MILWAUKEE (AP) — Missouri Governor Jay Nixon knows where the political land mines are in Wisconsin.

The most dangerous one he has to dodge will participating in a National Governors Association meeting in Milwaukee? Having his picture taken with a Miller beer.

Nixon joked Saturday about how poorly that would go over with voters back home in Missouri, home of Miller's rival Anheuser-Busch. Miller is based on Milwaukee.

Walker joked to Nixon that if he's caught with a Miller beer he could face a recall election. Walker became the first governor in U.S. history to defeat a recall last year.

His recall was spurred not by beer choice but anger over his law effectively ending collective bargaining rights for public workers.

According to police, the victim was shot multiple times in the chest and pronounced dead at the scene.  The name of the victim hasn't been released.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Florida's craft brewers are pushing to legalize 64-ounce beer growlers.

<br><br>

Growlers are the name given to beer containers filled right at the brewery. While the state's craft brewers can sell unlimited numbers of gallon and quart growlers, Florida is one of only three states where the half-gallon size is illegal.

<br><br>

Bills have been filed in the House and Senate to legalize the containers, but a lobbyist representing beer distributors for Anheuser-Busch has successfully stalled them.

<br><br>

The bills' sponsors argue that allowing the half-gallon growlers that are an industry standard will help small businesses grow, and they point out that it's silly that people can by two quarts, but not one half gallon.

The maker of Budweiser is using splashy newspaper ads to poke fun at a lawsuit that alleges its beer is watered down. In full-page ads in 10 U.S. newspapers on Sunday, including The New York Times and Los Angeles Times, Anheuser-Busch InBev shows one of the 71 million cans of drinking water it has sent to the American Red Cross and other relief organizations responding to disasters. "They must have tested one of these," the ad says. The class action lawsuit, filed in several states, accuses the brewer of cheating consumers out of the stated alcohol percentage by adding water just before bottling its beers. The water cuts the alcohol content by 3 percent to 8 percent, according to the lawsuit's lead lawyer, Josh Boxer. The lawsuits are based on information from former employees at the company's 13 U.S. breweries, some in high-level plant positions, he has said. Anheuser-Busch InBev says the claims are groundless. In the ads, the company calls its beer "the best beer we know how to brew." "We take no shortcuts and make no exceptions. Ever." Neither the ads nor a statement by an Anheuser-Busch spokesman on Sunday directly address the complaint. "We never waver on quality," a spokesman said in the statement. Boxer said in a statement Sunday that the ads amount to "classic non-denial denials." He said that the company will be asked to produce internal alcohol testing data in court that will prove his case. "These alcohol readings, taken six times a second as the finished product is bottled, will confirm the allegations made by the growing number of former employees who keep coming forward to tell us the truth," he said. The suit involves 10 Anheuser-Busch products: Budweiser, Bud Ice, Bud Light Platinum, Michelob, Michelob Ultra, Hurricane High Gravity Lager, King Cobra, Busch Ice, Natural Ice and Bud Light Lime. Anheuser-Busch, based in St. Louis, Mo., merged with InBev in 2008 to form the world's largest alcohol producer, headquartered in Belgium. In 2011, the company produced 10 billion gallons of malt beverages, 3 billion of them in the U.S., and reported $22 billion profit from that category, the lawsuit said. Lawsuits have been filed in California, Colorado, Ohio, Missouri, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Texas so far. Each seeks at least $5 million in damages.
