With Memorial Day around the corner, it’s become that “first day of summer” holiday where folks like to fire up the grill, crank up the ’90s country and pop the top on half a dozen (or more) cold cans.
But let’s not forget why we celebrate Memorial Day… to honor all of the military members that gave their lives so you could drink those freedom beers every weekend. Those brave men and women who paid the ultimate price… let’s remember that this month.
With that being said, the “King of Beers” has unveiled their brand new latest edition patriotic cans, paying tribute to Old Glory, and I gotta say, these things scream 50 stars and thirteen bars, by God.
Available just in time for Memorial Day weekend, the red white and blue cans come with certain unique features, like replacing the logo with the word “Freedom,” and the “King of Beers” slogan with “Let it Ring,” and the manifesto replaced with this:
“Here’s to the freedom that unites all Americans. It is the foundation that our country’s strength is built upon.
To commemorate this, we have replaced our iconic Budweiser name with Freedom so we can all toast to the value we hold so dear.
This Bud’s for freedom. This Bud’s for you.”
For every case sold, Budweiser will also donate to Folds of Honor to support educational scholarships for spouses and children of America’s fallen and disabled service-members.
24-packs of these bad boys will be sold from May 16th, to July 4th.
Tastes like freedom.
