Anheuser-Busch to quit selling alcoholic energy drinks

ST. LOUIS — Anheuser-Busch Cos. will quit selling caffeinated alcoholic drinks as part of a legal settlement with several state attorneys general.

New York Attorney General Andrew Cuomo says Anheuser-Busch, the nation’s largest brewer, was marketing its caffeinated drinks to minors and misrepresenting the drinks’ health benefits.

Cuomo said Thursday that St. Louis-based Anheuser-Busch will pull its "Tilt" and "Bud Extra" caffeinated drinks from the shelves and pay a $200,000 fine to 11 states that investigated the brewer’s practices.
