Beer brands have a more challenging task when advertising their product. With the watchful eyes of substance abuse groups, like Mothers Against Drunk Driving (M.A.D.D), on the related activities that people often participate in while under the influence, it is a priority for alcohol brands to promote their part in social responsibility.
Most beer ads have different approaches when advertising their beer. Budweiser and Miller often take the comedic male camaraderie approach in their advertisements where as others use
