When running down the list of patriotic prerequisites — bald eagles, apple pie, baseball, and The Kardashians — one can now pencil in 'Budweiser' after their decision to officially rename their beer, temporarily, to "America."
Anheuser-Busch announced the move, Tuesday, choosing to emblazon our great country's name across its 12-ounce cans and bottles from May 23rd to this November's election.
Such a move has many swelling with patriotism, inspired by visions of shotgunning cans of "America" this 4th of July, over excess amounts of barbecue, with fireworks' and rockets' red glare streaming across the bluest of skies this summer.
Under their summer-long campaign, "America is in Your Hands," we recognize the obvious nod to the golden brew quenching our country's collective thirsts during a season expecting the Olympics, the 4th of July, and a fervent finish to the general election — or as a vice president from Budweiser, Ricardo Marques, put it, "maybe the most American summer ever."
Cheers to "America" for encouraging me to inflate the alcohol level of the red, white, and blue blood coursing through my purple mountain's majesty-loving veins.
