Now that Bud Light and its parent company Anheuser-Busch have gone full-woke with the Dylan Mulvaney partnership, a few of the proudly conservative, or at least MAGA-minded, country stars are leading a boycott of Anheuser-Busch’s products. Kid Rock posted a video of him shooting up Bud Light cases with a submachine gun, Travis Tritt pledged to give all Anheuser-Busch products the boot from his tour events, and John Rich pledged to remove those products from his bar, Redneck Riviera.
However, Rich did a good job of interacting with his followers and fans in his boycott pledge, asking what his bar should replace Bud Light and other Anheuser-Busch products with. In his words: “What beer should my bar @rnrbarnash in Nashville replace #BudLight with?”

His fans and followers jumped in with suggestions. One, for example, said “Yuengling, the oldest American brewery. My personal favorite is the black and tan.” Responding, Rich said, “Mine as well. Love their Black and Tan!”
Another account, one called “Public Square” and which catalogs conservative businesses, jumped in and suggested a conservative brewing company, saying, “PublicSq. business @ArmedForcesBCis the American beer for you! They are pro-freedom and stand for traditional American values 🇺🇸🍻 Get their beer in your bar 💯”
One commenter suggested Corona, but was told that it too is owned by Anheuser-Busch, so it’s presumably out.
Many others suggested Rich (or more realistically his bar manager) use products produced by local breweries to support the local, Nashville economy and give small businesses a helping hand in a turbulent economic environment.
Rich posted another tweet later in which he highlighted his bar’s new whiskey, Redneck Riviera Whiskey:
All American, smooth, affordable and proudly supporting @foldsofhonor 🇺🇸@RedneckRiviera #whiskey is now available in over 10,000 locations! Find a store near you here: https://t.co/H8UiNbAQQP #DrinkAmerican pic.twitter.com/DgiwyIVB6J

Presumably it will replace Jack Daniels in the bar, as Jack also brought a transgender on board to market its products. Here that is, if your eyes can stand it:
BREAKING: @JackDaniels_US has gone full woke and put degenerate drag queens in their barrel house.
Jack is sponsoring something called “Drag Queen Summer Camp”
This is a *good* business move since Jack Daniels is only ordered by the mentally ill already.

And Jack Daniels has stuck by that campaign. “Jack Fire and Pride go together like cinnamon and whiskey,” the site proclaims. “Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Fire is dedicated to supporting the LGBTQ community year-round through representation in media we produce, nurturing a diverse and inclusive business, and partnerships and donations to GLAAD,” the site continues.
So there’s that. Another brand to boycott, another America product that used be great now gross and woke. Now it’s time for someone to do to Jack Daniels bottles what Kid Rock did to Bud Light. After the Bud Light promotions appeared, rock star patriot Kid Rock put out a now-viral video garnering almost 50 million views in which he blasted – quite literally – the company and product. The American Tribune reported on that epic video, writing:
Patriot rockstar Kid Rock reacted to the recent news that Budweiser had made Dylan Mulvaney one of its spokespersons by propping up a few cases of Bud Lights and lighting them up for target practice in a now-viral video circulating social media.
Rock has made it clear he despises the woke movement, and for this particular video, he simply turns around and says “Grandpa is feeling a little frisky today. Let me say something to all of you and be as clear and concise as possible.”
He then proceeds to open fire on the several cases, sending cardboard, aluminum, and beer flying – or outright disappearing in a barrage of lead.
Take a look at this hilarious response to one of the most outlandish woke campaigns yet.
