Anheuser-Busch runs 13 breweries across the US and produces iconic brands such as Budweiser, Michelob and Bud Light.

Lawyers working on the cases cite former brewery employees who accuse the company of diluting the products just before bottling in order to cut costs.

Parent company Anheuser-Busch InBev has called the accusations "groundless" and insisted its operations are "in full compliance with all alcohol labeling laws".
