Go about your business: Budweiser

This is true, I guess

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/morning-mix/wp/2016/05/10/budweiser-seeks-approval-to-be-called-america-this-summer/

Ya know Everybody Love Raymond was a show that was on for like 12 years?  I never watched it, not a single episode.  Or 2 1/2 Men.  Budweiser, kinda same deal.  Ubiquitous, and I don’t think I’ve ever had one, though I’d have to acknowledge that’s perhaps a function of provinciality.

If they name it America, maybe I’ll buy a 12er, just for the campiness.  Thats what they are going for, amirite.  A billion extra cases sold in the name of wry camp.

    I grew up in St. Louis, and on Budweiser. This seems to be to be a sick joke. That said, it is probably due to the fact that they want to create a global brand, and there is already an older brewery in Europe with that name/trademark.

    Now the beer will be like those bad t-shirts with faux American slogans that make no sense.
