As it turns out, lots of things are more American than Budweiser, especially when it comes to beer.
Budweiser broke the Internet – at least the craft beer portion of it
Remember last week, when Anheuser-Busch announced they were changing the name of Budweiser to “America”? After the initial belief it this was a joke wore off, and the internet exploded with “The [insert your number here] Beers More American Than Budweiser” lists, all I could think about was what if those other beer labels changed their names to “America” too? You can’t copyright “Freedom”, right?
Then, Bon Appétit came out with their list of 10 beers that *should* be renamed America this morning, so I felt like this had to be done:
Sierra Nevada Pale Ale
Anchor Steam Beer
Oskar Blues Dale’s Pale Ale
Russian River Pliny the Elder
Hill Farmstead Everett
The Alchemist Heady Topper
Victory Prima Pils
Deschutes The Abyss
Fortunately, I created a Budweiser sketchbook/journal before the “America” ridiculousness began, and you can grab it from my Etsy shop.
