Budweiser Unveils Special-Edition, World War II Cans In Honor Of Veterans Day


It may sounds like a cliché country song, but there’s nothing that screams blue-collar ‘Merica than some good ol’ Bud Heavys on a Friday night.

And I don’t know what it is, but a cold Bud just seems to taste even smoother when it’s in a new can. Those red, white, and blue patriotic cans were downright gorgeous at the 4th of July cookout this year, their Christmas cans always bring a little extra holiday cheer, and even those green Area 51 Bud Lights were pretty damn cool.

But this new one might just have them all beat.

Budweiser and Anheuser-Busch have been huge supporters of the military since its incorporation way back in 1852. In fact, Adolphus Busch actually served in the Union Army during the Civil War.

And this Veterans Day, they’re going to continue that longstanding tradition of honoring our nation’s veterans.

Announced today, Budweiser has officially unveiled their limited-edition, military heritage cans in recognition of the famous olive drab cans that the company produced during World War II.

The specialty cans are hitting the shelves today, and will be sold through Veterans Day.

But it doesn’t just stop there. For every case sold, Budweiser will donate $1 to Folds of Honor, the non-profit that raises scholarship money for widowed spouses and children of those who were killed in action or disabled in combat.

You gotta love it.

And the original World War II cans were a thing of  beauty. Go ahead and tell me drinking one of these in a foxhole in 1944 didn’t put a little hair on your chest… I dare ya.
