When you grab a Budweiser out of a BBQ cooler this summer, you'll be holding an ice-cold can of America. No, really -- that's what the sudsy stuff is called now.
That's right: Budweiser, the self-anointed "King of beers," is changing its name to America. In fact, the beer company revealed sweeping plans on Tuesday to take its patriotic promotional packaging to a startling new level, by completely replacing its name with "America" on its 12oz cans and bottles of beer this summer. And instead of its slogan and other branding, the cans will feature phrases from American history, such as lines from the Pledge of Allegiance and "The Star Spangled Banner." So, uh, good luck suppressing your urge to chant U-S-A, U-S-A, U-S-A after having a few.
