Jim Beam, Jamison Irish Whiskey, Garnier Fructis, T Mobil, Samsung, and Shock Top Belgian Wheat by Anheuser-Busch are all listed as advertisers in the comments. All but Shock Top have been verified.
I found this letter which was written in response to the advertisers:
I am appalled by the recent article in Rolling Stone magazine about our troops in the Stryker Brigade in Afghanistan. This very anti-American piece is full of filled with outright lies, and while I understand you have no control over editorial content, you do have control over your advertising investment. Similarly, I have control over my discretionary spending and the brands of alcohol I purchase.
I have been a loyal to the Jim Beam brand, but will abstain from purchasing your product for myself or my friends, and I will vocally oppose Jim Beam as long as you monetarily support the disgraceful, anti-American magazine Rolling Stone with your advertising dollars.
I eagerly await word that you will invest in advertising with more patriotic publications and I will again enjoy your fine bourbon.
