Budweiser Renames Its Beer "America"

Piss water was taken?

At least it was not as bad as Freedom Fries

Budweiser, a beer brand owned by a Belgian company, will soon appear on shelves with a new name: America.

Pointing to a spate of summer events set to bring out feelings of nationalism, Budweiser said Tuesday that it would replace the word “Budweiser” with “America” on its cans, bottles and packaging from May 23 through the general election in November.

It will be “probably the most American summer of our generation,” said Ricardo Marques, a vice president at Budweiser.

Along with the traditional spring and summer holidays — Memorial Day, Independence Day and Labor Day, this summer will bring the Olympics and the Copa América soccer tournament, to be held in June at sites throughout the United States.

The beer’s slogan, “King of Beers,” will be replaced with “E Pluribus Unum” (“Out of many, one”), the words featured on American currency. Instead of a description of the brewing process at the top of the can, there will be lyrics to “The Star-Spangled Banner.” The new look was designed by Jones Knowles Ritchie, which has offices in London, New York, Shanghai and Singapore.

The quotes in the thread title are around the wrong word.

As much as I hate the mainstream news channels (and media in general) I do applaud them for mentioning that Anheuser-Busch is Belgian owned after covering this earth-shattering story.

I don't think this is what Sir Denis Eton-Hogg meant when he said, "And so say all of us... Tap into America!"

Its one level higher than shitty beer like Coors and Medalla and about 50 levels below most German and European beers. Call it whatever they want, but most people who enjoy real beer call it piss.

Re: Budweiser Renames Its Beer "America"

I love a good craft beer, but I also like a Bud now and again. Beer snobs annoy me. I won't tell you what music to listen to if you won't tell me what beer to drink.
