A few days ago, we talked about Budweiser changing their name to “America” till elections period in November. And now, Saugatuck Brewing Company has taken a chance to troll Budweiser for their grand announcement.
In a Facebook post, the Michigan brewery announced that “Fear not, America. We’re here to make beer named after America great again.”
While Budweiser is truly going to be introducing their new “America” branding in June this year, “‘Murica” is just an internet prank to get everyone riled up and for a little fun. Megan Pruim, Saugatuck’s marketing coordinator confirmed to MLive.com that it was a joke, adding, “We were sitting around the brewery, having a little bit of fun and seeing the humor in it. We were playing around with the idea and decided to do something to make people laugh.”
