If you think you have seen the worst of Chinese counterfeit products, well you might want to do a rethink.

Earlier this month, authorities in Dongguan, China, shut down a factory which was churning out cans of fake Budweiser beer.

In what looked like a rather makeshift set-up, workers in the factory immersed empty used cans, with their top cropped out, into plastic buckets of beer to fill up the cans. All this is done with bare hands, which obviously prevent hygiene issues.

Then, the cans are placed onto a dirty conveyor belt and machine-pressed to shut them tight. The beer is reported to be sold to nearby clubs and pubs.

Since the police arrests earlier this month, videos from the factory have emerged online, and you have to see it for yourself.

It is reported that the factory churns out 600,000 creates of such contaminated beer each month, although it is unclear how long the set-up has been in operation.

Budweiser, an American lager produced  by Anheuser-Busch, is reportedly taking legal action against the bootleggers.

“For more than a decade, Budweiser has been working hard to establish itself as the “King of Beers” in the world’s largest beer market,” The Shanghaiist reports. “By 2012, Anheuser-Busch had 15 breweries outside of the US, 14 of them in China, helping Budweiser become the country’s 3rd biggest beer brand by 2014, and a prime target for counterfeit breweries.”Follow us on Social Media
