Greif v. Anheuser-Busch Companies, Inc. 114 F.Supp.2d 100 (D.Conn. 2000) FACTS: Bicyclist brought state court action against beer manufacturers to recover for personal injuries sustained when she was struck by automobile driven by motorist who had consumed manufacturers' products. After removal to federal court, manufacturers moved to dismiss. The District Court held that: (1) beer was not defective due to fact that it contained alcohol; (2) manufacturers were not required to warn consumers of dangers of drinking to excess; and (3) bicyclist could not bring breach of warranty claim against manufacturers. Motion granted. ISSUES: Is the presence of alcohol in beer a defective condition that makes the manufacturer strictly liable? Is the presence of alcohol in beer a breach of implied warranties? Is the alleged defect the proximate cause of Plaintiff’s injuries in an automobile accident involving drunk driving?
