    Anheuser-Busch announced Tuesday that the company is replacing the Budweiser logo with “America” on its 12-oz. cans and bottles this summer.

    The cans of patriotic nectar will be available May 23 through the November election and aim “to inspire drinkers to celebrate America and Budweiser's shared values of freedom and authenticity.”

    A/B, an American company which sold out to a foreign InBev, is now labeling their cans "America".

    One of the shittiest tasting beers there is. Good analogy to the quality America produces.

    Instead of changing the name, how about putting good beer in the can?
