Budweiser Changes Name Of Beer To 'America'

Summer is generally packed with American holidays, but this year, with the election and the Olympics going on, it has the potential to be an extra patriotic time.

Anheuser-Busch InBev recognizes this and wants to give each and every U.S. person of drinking age one more way to embrace his or her national pride, reports The Verge.

The beer maker intends to, for a time, change the name of Budweiser to "America."

Previews of the new label show it is chock full of historic U.S. references, including lyrics from "The Star-Spangled Banner," notes the Washington Post.

The design has been submitted to the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau for approval.
